Isn't Reagan supposedly the most naturally gifted of all of the Penn brothers?

Reagan won a Mundials gold before BJ. Went as a white belt w 6 months of training and took the blue belt gold as he competed up back in the day. BJ straight up says Reagan is better than he is naturally but he doesn't apply himself to be at the upper echelon, he just trains because he likes it.

Oh I think I see what you mean. White and blue gold means what? That he was more talented than BJ winning at black after 3 years? Come on Phone Post

maybe it's the whole older brother stigma? bj is the youngest of the penn bros and the most talented (documented) but who knows what happens behind the scene.

no one is saying Reagan accomplished more. the folklore is that Reagan has the most potential.

According to my 1st instructor (who spent a couple of months at BJ Penn's gym in Hilo back in 2002), he had more difficulty dealing with Reagan than BJ. He said it's most likely due to clash of styles. Also told me Reagan was a very lazy person. Don't know what that means.

98 Mundials regan won light blue and BJ took feather blue silver.
BJ then took leve brown bronze in 99 and did ok I hear in 2000 :)

This was around the time Kai Garcia, ricco Rodriguez, Egan Inoue, kendall goo and other gringos were doing well at blue and purple. Phone Post

The point was BJ was purple at that time and Reagan, with SIX months of training as a WHITE BELT, on a whim entered the blue belt division and the Mundials and won the whole thing. Even BJ was like wtf. And when it comes to training BJ straight up says when it comes to flat out natural talent Reagan is better, its just that bjj never was his #1 priority like it was for BJ when BJ was on his way to Mundials black belt goal. If it was Reagan may have done as well if not better than BJ but that is all speculation, he just never cared to push it that far.

I'll need to look at BJ's biography again but I am pretty sure he said he was purple when Reagan took that gold at that year.
