BJ Penn At The Grand Caynon With His Family

I hope now that BJ got in the cage for the final time and knows for sure that his days competing in MMA are over he can enjoy the legacy he’s left behind and the beautiful family he has now.  BJ is without a doubt one of the most talented guys to ever enter the Octagon and though it is easy to look back and say his career could have been so much more he did great things in the...

UFC: BJ Penn the prodigy no more

As we grow older there is times in our lives where we come to the realization that things change, and nothing last forever. Around 10 years old we realize that fat men with bags of presents don’t fit down the chimney. At 13 we figure out that girls really aren’t that icky. At 21 we realize that being an adult isn’t all its cracked up to be. And at The Ultimate Fighter 19...

Your all-time favorite B.J. Penn moments

There are probably about a handful of fighters in the relatively short history of mixed martial arts that you could dub a ‘once in a lifetime’ fighter while keeping a straight face. B.J. Penn is one of those fighters. He may even be the first one that comes to mind for some. In light of him calling it a career this past Sunday night (it feels very real this time) we took to twitter...

BJ Penn Breaks Down As He Confirms Retirement At Post-Fight Presser

One of the UFC’s biggest ever stars BJ Penn broke down in tears last night at the TUF 19 Finale post-fight press conference as he confirmed that it was time to hang up his gloves for good after a one-sided loss to Frankie Edgar in their trilogy fight. “I’m thinking to myself, ‘Why did you step back into the Octagon after the beating that Rory MacDonald gave you?’” Penn...

Edgar retires Penn via TKO in trilogy bout

B.J. Penn’s gameplan for his trilogy bout against Frankie Edgar to close out the UFC’s 3rd annual International Fight Weekend was a bit of head scratcher. He came out with a strange upright stance that he used for the duration of the fight inside of the Mandalay Bay Events Center. He appeared to want to fight off his back early on in the contest, employing the feet on hips guard...

BJ Penn on knees for Frankie Edgar at TUF 19 & feeling that 145lbs is finally his true weight

BJ Penn looks to show the world that he still has a heck of a lot of fight in him left as he makes his featherweight debut against old rival Frankie Edgar. The two square off this Sunday on the final of the 19th season of The Ultimate Fighter. Wow, just saying that makes me feel old. But anywho, Penn spoke to media yesterday about his third encounter with Edgar in which he hopes...

Mike Dolce In Hawaii With Mirsad Bektic And The Prodigy BJ Penn

If you have been tuning into Frankie Edgar and BJ Penn’s season of TUF it is clear that the two have mutual respect for each other but I have a feeling it will be an absolute war when those two finally square off for the first time as featherweights. Big fight for Penn as he has lost to Edgar twice already but with fitness and nutrition guru Mike Dolce helping him throughout training...
