The legend, BJ Penn

Really nice article by Jack Slack on MMA and Jiujitsu legend BJ Penn.

There have been few falls from grace as ugly and lengthy as that of BJ Penn. Nobody who knows the game is hung up on his 16-10 record, he has nothing to prove to anyone who knows their onions in that regard. It is simply that Penn spent so many years being in many ways remarkable, in a few ways wanting, and continued to drag out his attempts to find the mythical ‘motivated BJ Penn’ rather than addressing the actual issues in his game.

One thought on “The legend, BJ Penn

  1. To me, BJ Penn was fascinating for his suppleness and what he could do with it. His overwhelming, brutal martial-ability, not so much.
