“When I talked to BJ, for example… BJ’s a straight fighter, I mean he’s a killer.  I mean he’s an athlete- and all these guys are athletes.  But a lot of these guys make it through this game just being athletic; BJ makes it through this game being a bonafide killer.  I mean the guy really has a different mindset; he’s an intelligent guy, and we were able to connect because he knew that’s what kept him going was his mind.  That’s what keeps him going.  BJ’s mind is still so strong, we’re going to see that guy win a title again [laughs].  But he is, he’s going to win a 55 title.”

If anyone can do it, again, it's BJ Penn.

The LW version of BJ Penn is a tank. He definitely could if he really dedicated himself.

I've always been a fan of BJ and I hope he's confident and gets back to contender form but IMO theres no way he gets that title again.

"BJ makes it through this game being a bonafide killer".

While I agree he's a bonafide killer the problem is it hasn't gotten him thru this game successfully all the time.

There's not to many from the sport of MMA I would unquestionably put next to myself in a street fight to help out but BJ would definitely be one of them, no doubt in my mind he could dish it out as well as take it.

but there are indeed many things he could improve to be more successful at being an elite champion in MMA.

madmaxej9 - I love BJ but the sport evolved so fast the last couple of years that he won't be able to catch up anymore. Aside from the athletic component (and Parillo is right, a lot of guys are more athletic than skilled but if someone just outpaces you he's still gonna win) the level of skill has risen so much the last 2-3 years that it's almost impossible for BJ. The Rory fight was a perfect example. punching and kick combinations left and right, question mark kicks, liver shots, wrestling...BJ is too one dimensional to hang with these young kids nowadays.

I'd love to see him fight Bendo, but it would look exactly the same as his fight with GSP. he wouldn't be able to submit bendo and he'd get his ass kicked in the stand up...and if not in the first round, then mid second..when he gets tired....sad thing but brutal reality

Penn looked too be in pretty good shape against rory, he just had nothing for him.

Even against Edgar he was in good shape, he just didnt know how to handle Frankie's style.

Hell get a win, which will get him hype, but then hell probably lose again and retire

Gatekeeper at best which is a shame, probably end up like Fitch and end up knocking off contenders without ever being able to beat the top 3 guys in the division.

BJ Penn has limitless ambition and confidence.

People shit on his record now.

I wonder how GSP would have fared if he'd have gone to MW after a single belt defense.

Or Anderson Silva at LHW.

Not fighting random dudes, but fighting for the belt, and other top 10s.

BJ is probably set like a motherfucker financially, age only goes in one direction, so if he wants to go out with a bang, fuck yeah, go for it.

ANYTHING bigging up BJ Penn is relevant to my posts, breh.

Yeah, he's not 50% athlete 50% businessman like some other champs, he's 100% warrior.
