BJ Penn after taking a relentless beating on the mat for the final three of the four rounds he lasted against Georges St-Pierre, succumbed to a technical a technical knockout stoppage by a ringside side doctor and his corner before the fifth round during the showdown between the two Ultimate Fighting belt holders.
St.Pierre (18-2) defended his welterweight belt against lightweight champ Penn (13-5-1) by imposing his size and advantage against the gutty UFC veteran who was unable to call upon his jujitsu and striking strengths because of St.Pierre's repeated take downs, punches, and elbows. Throughout the fight Penn continuously found himself with his back on the mat, and his face sometimes pressed against the octagons chain link.
St. Pierre showed no mercy in this one sided bought versus Penn. Proving to the world again he is the best at what he does and again making Canada proud, defending his welterweight belt and stripping Penn of his and receiving another. There's not much else i can say except St. Pierre continues to dominate the cage and live up to his reputation.
So on July 11th, 2009 UFC 100 is scheduled to take place in Nevada, USA where St.Pierre will take on his next opponent Thiago Alves (16-3) were i predict St.Pierre will once again come out on top defending his belts.
