"BJ Penn Is Absolutely A Hall-Of-Famer" Says UFC President | UFC NEWS


“I love BJ Penn. BJ’s been a huge star for us for a long time, but I think BJ could have been in the talks with who is the greatest of all time. I’ve said it for years about BJ. BJ is (expletive) tough as nails, has an unbelievable chin, a rock head… if you look at some of the fights where he’s on the bottom, he’s getting smashed; the guy doesn’t cut. I don’t know what his skin is made out of. He’s just this kid that was born and built to fight,” White described the legendary fighter. He’s absolutely a Hall of Famer. Not only at the time when people were saying that the 55-pounders couldn’t headline pay-per-views and all this other stuff, BJ Penn became a huge, huge star.”

UFC president Dana White tells the media during yesterday’s UFC on FOX 4 pre-fight press conference that BJ Penn is destined for a Hall-Of-Fame induction.

    No way jens pulver is.

    • Mik says:

      Jens Pulver only fought 8 times in the UFC and defended his title twice, he almost has a loosing record and hasn’t really done much except for loose.

      • Bob Jones says:

        If you’re going to be overly critical of others, maybe you could spell lose and losing correctly next time. ;-) Idk if Jens Pulver is a hall of famer or not, but he was pretty tough and got a decision against the greatest lightweight of all time. He deserves some props.

      • 757 says:

        Jens Pulver is a hard nosed competitor. I ‘m not sure if he should or should not be in. If you go strictly by record (which I don’t) then look at Randy’s record or Shamrock’s or some of the other hall of famers. Jens was good dude and hard fighter. He always fought hard and beat BJ in their first fight. All of the haters on this sight are just ridiculous. I challenge those to do some research. This kid came from a shitty place and made some money of of fighting skills. He was there in the beginning when it wasn’t even legal in most states. Give the guy his props. Do some research if you don’t believe it and get off the hate ride.

    • simon carter says:

      are u for real about jens pulver or is this a joke

  2. Dante Niro says:

    BJ Penn = Ninja !

  3. BJ is KING says:

    BJ actually has the balls to go up divisions and challenge himself, a true champion. GSP and co can sit in their little castle all they want, they are cowards and are afraid of losing their GOAT tags.BJ fought machida for gods sake, did well too. I bet 1000 bucks GSP would never have the balls to fight someone like jones (about the same difference between the fighters as BJP and LM) let alone AS

    • danielrchargers says:

      Ben hendersons a bitch.
      hes a welterweight.

      • Scotty says:

        Stfu, you sound stupid… He has always fought at 155, he can make the cut and it doesn’t effect him at all in the fight.. Not to mention he is only 29 years old.. Maybe in a few years if the weight cut starts to get harder, he will move up to WW but right now he is a 155’er

      • blahblahblah says:

        Why? He cuts just as much weight as people in weight classes above him. The guy only weighs around 175 pre-camp by self admission. So because he cuts 20 pounds he should just move up? Then so should damn near every other fighter on the roster.

    • Jerseyinthisbitch says:

      U are so right

    • 691 says:

      i fucken agree

  4. There it is people, Bj has gone up to 205 to face Lyoto and he probably weighed 185 when they fought..He dominated top fighters at 55 for a long time, people forget that when he left the UFC for a little while he fought only top fighters in Gomi when Gomi was in his prime, He even fought Renzo, At 170 he still put on exiting fights but did not win the big one’s except when he beat Hughes the first time…It’s funny how the younger fighter wan’t to call him at at the later end of his career and how these new MMA fans don’t give him the respect he earned not deserves..Well you heard it from the man himself Dana White! I’d take a motivated Bj Penn in his prime any day over any 155’er and for sure over GSP, Rory, Fitch,and Nick Diaz..I’m still picking him over Rory because I’m a loyal friend..Penn Nation 4LIFE…

  5. Ricky says:

    I remember BJ calling out guys when he was younger becasue thats what you do is beat the best to become the best. Morons!!

  6. chardt says:

    BJ is an amazing fighter and athlete. He walks the walk and backs up what he says. Look at the St.Pierre fight he lost…look at GSP’s face, and BJ’s….GSP is BUSTED UP, and BJ doesn’t have a mark on him…his takedown defence is the nothing short of Legendary… Hell RANDY COUTURE has trouble taking him down…and sure as hell can’t KEEP him down.

    BJ’s only failing that I see is keeping himself motivated…but when he comes READY to fight, he’s brilliant.

  7. Tom Ryan says:

    BJ PENN = LIVING LEGEND = HALL OF FAMER = GOAT (aside from Anderson). period.

  8. EP says:

    BJ PENN = LIVING LEGEND = HALL OF FAMER = GOAT (aside from Anderson). period.

    * i think it posted this comment under a different name before *

  9. Xaninho says:

    Definitely! BJ is one of the great and the Spider too.

  10. stephen riddle says:

    Bj always brings it always i really hope he comes motivated for rory! Win Bj Penn!!!!

  11. mma88 says:

    BJ is loyal to a fault. He has family and good friends in his corner even though everyone knows they’re not the best he can have at his side. Aside from that, his below average cardio has prevented him from truly being one of the greatest of all time.

  12. Lil Joe says:

    BJ PENN’s kryptonite is SPAM. If he would leave that stuff alone he would be the GOAT.

    • Chart says:

      Steroids for life.If he took steroids he wouldve been GOAT like the rest of um.Shouldve took da juice BJ and be a lame cheating goat like me,not dat just scrap wack style das for bitches.

    • Unarmed Spectator says:

      Dude don’t knock SPAM! Many a fighters have won with a belly full of spam and rice….

  13. mj says:

    BJ is the best 1 round fighter in the history of the UFC. If he was blessed with cardio equal to his flexibility then I´d give him a chance against even Silva. Sad, but he does have a ***** and I dont think its being lazy. You just cant have everything..KO power, amazing BJJ, amazing chin and like stated above the best take down defense of all time. Shit Randy did actually say BJ is hard for him to get down and couldnt keep him there. I dont think anyone has ever beat a round one BJ.

  14. Dick Diaz says:

    key word: could’ve… love BJ Penn but that is a very key word…

  15. Chart says:

    I love BJ but GSP is GOAT,Im the biggest BJ fan,I spits ignorance bitches.

  16. maurice says:

    one things for sure..IF bj had great cardio, he would be undefeated and the most well rounded fighter in mma.

  17. diehard ufcer says:

    I think prime bj n rory mcdonald would have potential for greatest match in ufc history. this rory n this bj…..bj only chance in first round. If it goes past that rory will destroy him when he starts to gas just like nick Diaz. Nick Diaz vs rory mcdonald….now THAT’S a fukin matchup.

  18. diehard ufcer says:

    I think prime bj n rory mcdonald would have potential for one of greatest match in ufc history. this rory n this bj…..bj only chance in first round. If it goes past that rory will destroy him when he starts to gas just like nick Diaz. Nick Diaz vs rory mcdonald….now THAT’S a fukin matchup.

  19. chris says:

    Personally feel that BJ having questionable cardio and still fighting guys much bigger than him is all the more reason he deserves HOF.

  20. Ryan says:

    I believe BJ has more of a right to be in the hall of fame then ken shamrock or Dan Severn! And before you jump all over me and say I need to do research or what ever, I’ve seen ALL the UFC and Pride fights, it’s just my opinion :)

  21. Twayne says:

    Hells To Da’ Yah! Hall Of Famer In My Book Already!
