“I love it (the trash talk BJ fired at Nick Diaz), you know what? It’s a crazy f*cking sport. You have to be a crazy f*cking animal to get in there. What BJ said, so what?
There are people on the underground [forum] saying, ‘Oh, I’m no longer a fan of BJ he just lost a fan.’ It’s like dude, give me a f*cking break these guys are animals and super emotional. Do you know how f*cking insane you have to be [to get in a cage and fight]?
Of course he’s gonna say some sh*t, so what. If there was video of BJ sucking someone’s d*ck I would still be a fan for the rest of my life…
I’m obviously joking. My point is, you’re not gonna like BJ Penn because he’s emotional over a loss?
… BJ Penn is the only dude that’s going up in weight to fight the best. He’s fighting the best. Everyone else is killing themselves to get as light as possible, their losing 20 pounds, 15 pounds.
BJ is the only guy, not only going up in weight, because there have been fighters to do it. Anderson Silva did it. He went up to light-heavyweight and fought James Irvin. But BJ, he fought Lyoto when Lyoto was a heavyweight. BJ whether he wins or loses nobody has bigger balls than BJ.
I like it (the twitter war between Penn and Team Cesar Gracie) because now there might be a rematch let’s see a rematch I would love to see part II.”
Famed Jiu Jitsu practitioner and coach Eddie Bravo, the innovator and creator of the “Rubber Guard”, was recently on The Joe Rogan podcast and somewhere during the two (plus) hour broadcast the topic of BJ Penn’s twitter rants aimed at the Diaz camp came up.
While Joe Rogan took more of the stance of caution, stating he didn’t like to see BJ come off the way he did last week, Eddie Bravo was all for it.
The two Mixed Martial Arts figures debated back and forth over a joint of MMJ and it was Eddie Bravo who stuck to his guns and was the voice of reason when discussing the topic at hand in a realistic frame of mind.
As a fighter, can you really do more to test yourself than BJ Penn has? You don’t have to agree with how he conducts himself in his personal life, in fact no one is asking you to, but he should always be respected for what he has done in his storied, two division championship career.
