    Holy crap. That is some final destination stuff right there.


    But what if the bruises were actually from getting slugged by another fat guy at the bar

    Damn. That's disturbing. Glad he's okay and not a litigious type of guy.

    Holy shit there are some once in life time stories and hopefully that's one of them.

    Like above said some real final destination type vibes.

    Feel like I would panic and instantly die but then again I'm not motivated

    Finally nice to hear a BJ Penn story on here that isnt about him being an absolute dickhead.

    but I'm glad he made it through. That sounds like a really effed up way to die.

    and he's probably right. His experience as a fighter probably helped him get through it. People go into panic mode and make things worse when they end up in tough situations. But BJ has obviously dealt with tough situations being a fighter so he has a little more resiliency than the average person to deal with a situation like the one he described.

    Guy is so dumb he gets sucked into a wave pool and then tells the story like he's awesome for not dying

    Another L on his record but great to see Penn be more competitive this time around.

    How did he get out? You'd think someone would have known he went missing and shut the wave machine down? Seems like it would be a dark area too so imagine not being able to see where you are and which way is up

    Sherdoggers tell better BJ Penn stories than BJ Penn does.
