i think there's a standing law preventing rooting against him in the islands.

Im from Hilo and oddly enough there are people who root against him. The number of people rooting for him is higher but there are haters. Phone Post

I've been a BJ fan since he won Mundials, still am.

Personally I cannot honestly say that there's a Penn hater amongst my friends and family. I'm from Oahu though and I could definitely see it being different for some Hilo braddahs Phone Post

I like BJ. Don't know him personally but from what I have seen of him publicly
he's very fan friendly. I like the way he fights. I stopped watching UFC a while back, but I will be watching this one.

WAR PENN!! Phone Post

Bj pretty much epitomizes the typical Hawaii athlete. Very talented, a great deal of support, insufficient work ethic.



i am not a fan

I'm always rooting for him, but I wouldn't put money on him against certain people. I actually won some money betting against BJ when he fought Diaz. But I've been here 6 years, so my vote probably don't count.

I think a motivated BJ can take out Rory, I'm rooting for BJ this Saturday.

I started training one week after seeing him, in person, tap out pulver a second after the second round bell at UFC 35.

I will always be a bj fan. Phone Post

The thing with BJ is he wears his heart on his sleeve, it's very hard not to like him.

I first met Bj when I was a blue belt and he was a purple. At the time he was already making noise/gaining fame in Jiu jitsu and when we met he was cool as hell. Now fast forward 13 years with all the fame and money, the man is still the same humble guy that I met in 99.

So yeah, Ill be rooting for him. Big time.

I've lost money on all of BJ's losses, I just didn't like his performances. When someone like him who entered the sport at such a young age and is still young, I think he's still figuring out what the fuck to do with his life. Hate to say it but at this point in his career, I think he's now a gatekeeper for 155 and 170 divisions. He's either going to knock off the up and coming guys or hang up the gloves and just catch waves.
