Marquardt: BJ Penn is an idiot

by Jonathan Shrager | source:

JS: OK. I don't want to dwell on the issue because it's firmly in the past, but I just wanted to briefly touch upon the reaction from the MMA community to your departure from the UFC back in June. You are renowned for being a true gentleman, amiable and respectful, so it must be hurtful when less considerate fighters scramble to pass comment and judgement on their fellow fighters?

NM: Definitely yes. There are a lot of people who are quick to pass judgement even when they don't know both sides of the story. They should not judge unless they've been in that situation or if they are an expert on the issue. It's even more sad when fellow fighters openly pass judgement when there is a clear discrepancy on what happened.

JS: I believe you have been in Hawaii? Was it a holiday or a business trip? I presume you didn't pay BJ Penn a visit? What do you make of BJ's overstated comments since the incident?
20keo371_crop_340x234 Dan Hardy never received the memo...Nate is already effectively a male model

NM: Yes I went there on vacation and to watch the fights at Kalapaki Joes. I was planning on stopping by his gym but we went to Kauai (a different island). "Cry Baby J" is an idiot to speak the way he does. I don't know how a pothead is going to go and be so judgemental over medication prescribed by a doctor. I'll assume CryBJ has glaucoma and gets his weed from a "doctor" and I won't pass judgement on him for that.

Let's be clear about something.Nate was on therapy and asked to stop so his actual need could be assessed. After getting tested, he was given the thumbs up to resume the therapy. No problem, right?But he didn't just resume what he had been taking. He began taking a "more aggressive" regimen of testosterone than was actually okay'd by the endocrinologists. Think about it. It's like you started building a 6' fence around your house but the city comes by and asks you to stop building until you are approved for a permit. You stop, they evaluate and then they tell you it's okay to resume building. So you start building a taller fence.

Sure they don't know Nate's personal physician, but the following has been well documented, and is undeniable FACT in this matter:1. Nate (185) put the CAL on BJ. (155)2. BJ said all day playboy, just prove that you didn't cycle leading up the the fight.3. Nate declined the opportunity to clear his name, silence the critics, back up his words etc., when all he would have had to do is NOT juice before the fight.

Im sure if BJ was all jacked up on nandrolone and test he wouldn't have felt like quitting either.
