Penn excited for another crack at Tri-Star

[bjpenn.com]
 

“Training is coming along, I couldn’t be happier with how everything is going,” said Penn. “I’m in the gym trying to put in my time and I’ve used the last few months to get into shape. I think it was a blessing that the fight got pushed back (from UFC 152). I’ve had more time to train and I’ve been able to work out more. We’re giving it an honest effort and we’ll see how everything works out.”

“I wanted to have another match against Tri-Star and head coach Firas Zahabi and it’s not being done because of any bad blood,” admitted Penn. “I feel like I have more to show them and without a doubt Rory has a lot of hype surrounding him. I can see why, he’s done great so far. He’s in great condition, he can kick, punch, he can wrestle and he knows how to fight on the ground. Everyone is saying he’s going to be one of the top guys and those are the guys I like to fight. It works out two ways for me; I get to face a really good opponent and I get to compete against Firas again.”

x Anchor x - So is GSP considered a Tri-Star fighter more so than a Jackson fighter now? Who does he self proclaim his affiliation to first and foremost? Anyone know? Phone Post

Relieved that he didn't conjure up a kiss of death by saying he was "in the best shape of his life."

he was never a Jackson fighter. He just sparred with some people their and game planned with Greg. Jackson was the the one who acted like he was a Jackson fighter just to try and act like the best we ever was from Jackson. GSP is ablnd always has been a Tristar fighter.

This, Zahabi has never gotten the credit he deserves for GSP. Jackson has gotten all of it because GSP would spend a month of his year sparring down there and help him with his gameplan a couple weeks of his camp.

GSP is a Tri-Star fighter, the Jackson association has been blown out of proportion and marketed well. Phone Post

I just want BJ to beat up a hipster. It really annoys me the way Rory dresses. Shallow of me yes, however, I'm a grown up and fucking hate hipsters. Phone Post

This could easily turn into a second Diego Sanchez-like beating. Starting with Rory eating uppercuts off a single leg. WAR PENN. Phone Post

I think thats why he is taking this fight....if he can't compete with the next gen fighter I do not believe he wants to fight. Of course BJ always takes loses really hard and can come off whiney but hey he is passionate.
