The true test of the great fighter is how he overcomes adversity when things get rough in the cage. Those who can't are labeled quitters. B.J. Penn threw out that damning label about Georges St. Pierre during the "Primetime" preview series. He's not the only person in the fight world who thinks that GSP can be broken:
"He's so athletically gifted and he did destroy so many guys so easily. A lot of it now is if you bully him back he doesn't like it," said fighter and tv/radio analyst Frank Trigg. "B.J.'s a guy who's not scared to bully you back. (It) is that mental click in there that can step in and grab a hold of you and destroy your entire night"
Trigg told Cage Writer that Penn intimidates people because he stands right in front of them:
"You hit B.J. with your best shot and he turns around and hits you two times in the body and three times in head. And then he's all of sudden in the middle of trying to submit you again. All of sudden you start to fade. It depends on how tough you're going to be."
