For being a small guy and have competed as big as HW... Hespect Penn.
Welcome to the party. You're late.
More threads like this please.
Thanks. None of us knew anything about him....
Every few months, someone needs to remind us of how lazy BJ Penn always was but wanted to fight, regardless of his laziness.
We get it. He fought at HW because he was fat and lazy.
His ballsiness was mostly due to his unwillingness to train like a champion, which is why he will never get the credit he probably deserved.
I agree, It should be a weekly thread, or perhaps daily.
Pff he was ducking super HW
I've always respected Penn's complete disregard for a proper MMA training camp.
Lol, you're funny. Akira Corassani stepped up to fight a real heavyweight in Dion Staring.
BJ is old school man... training camps, strategy, weight classes... all for pussies on his mind... TO THE DEATH!
I definitely respect BJ, but him fighting in higher weight classes had a lot to do with his lack of discipline as well.
Hespect Corassani then.
Or to the 4th, where he quit.
speaking as a "can" who lives in hawaii, and who knows bj through my wifes best friend... i know many things about the prodigy which will never be said on sherdog. that said, this thread sucks.
Sorry, would respect bj penn more if he never fought above a weight class available to him... He should have been putting in work sub 170
Going to HW realistically was kind of an easy cop out. No risk to his reputation, all reward
He did great things, but in hindsight he's looking more like a flash in the pan since he couldn't focus and hold shit down like MM
I'd quit too...
Putting that loss of Penn's lack of will rather than the hellacious beating Georges was putting on him is an injustice to both men and the fight. I think most fighters would have been done early in the third.
