Reagan Penn Issues Statement Following First Career Defeat: Promises To Return Better Than Ever


“I would like to let all the fans know that I’m gonna give it one more shot. Congratulations to Evan Cutts, he kicked my ass pretty good tonight. There were some things that went on in my training camp but I am not here to make any excuses. I could have done more, I was being stubborn and thought I could walk through this fight by half ass’ing it but now I know what it’s like when you’re in there and you feel like you can’t hold your arms up. I disrespected the sport a little bit, but sometimes the best wake up call is getting your ass kicked. I promise my fans, friends and family that I will never let this happen again. Expect me back and better than ever in 2012.”

  1. PennfamilyFan says:

    Hey, Both brothers please cheer up and come back and fight one more time for your fans..better then ever..Please take up Caesar Gracies offers maybe we can get Raegan and BJ to start running marathon with nick LOL

  2. Jamie says:

    I want to see both Reagan and BJ train with the Cesar Gracie Team! Both of you will be better for it!

  3. aloha says:

    Definitely go with team cesar gracie guys. I’ve always seen bj and the cg guys like one big family, just because their mindsets seem so similar.

    Please consider it.

    Greatness before being stubborn.

  4. xbabewithbitex says:

    You guys are awesome hands down always a winner in my heart!.. TEAM PENN FOREVER!!!!! <3

  5. RoderickMMA says:

    All you Penn’s just inspire me ” a bi-polar person ” Whata family!
    The fat lady does not sing in MMA! Best wishes Reagan!

  6. LCM says:

    “One more shot”? Come on Reagan, you’re in the infancy of your MMA career. Don’t talk like that brother. One fight at a time. I wish you and BJ all the best.

    • aloha says:

      yeah, reagan shouldn’t be forced to live up to his brother this early in his career. No one can.

      Bernard hopkins lost in his debut, and about 20+ years later hes still on the top of his game.

      Never give up if this is what you want reagan. But you need to show heart in training, and go that extra mile. You already showed you can take a beating and have a heart when fighting.

      Train hard so the fights are easy. Go go penn brothers.

  7. JARIS AKA ANGERFIST says:

    Man I say BJ and Reagan pack their bags and fly to nor cal and train with cesar gracie.. Work on their cardios and join a strong loyal team..

  8. kingofmma says:

    penn bro’s seem to have the same mentality. bad cardio as well :( they should work with cesars gracies team if they actually want to compete these days.. after round 1 their done haha.

    Their still favorites but won’t be high echelons if they don’t put in the work.

    • JAG says:

      “after round 1 their(should be they’re btw) haha” I guess you find that funny???!

      WHATEV’S CHUMP!!! I WANNA SEE YOU STEP IN THERE WITH EITHER ONE FOR JUST 30 SECONDS!!! RUN COWARD!!!

      HAHAHAHA!!!! @king of MMA

  9. jesse pomai says:

    wat about goin back to A.K.A. both of u revamp yourself there Bj at 55 screw Fitch/draw/rematch jes become training partners there’s even Kos & Cain

  10. jason says:

    considering you could barely hold up your arms Cuts did not seem to be that great

  11. Ninja Oreo Dollop says:

    Don’t be so hard on yourself! Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither was a great MMA career. Live up to you own expectations that way you can say you gave it your all. Let’s do it Reagan!

  12. RJ KANEAO says:

    braddah reagan.. keep ur head up brother.. bumps in the road bro.. we all go through um no matter what field we’re in.. hope to see u soon..aloha

  13. OCD says:

    Good this happens now than later.

  14. dana white says:

    Marinivich.dont trust gracie.he slick.marinavich didnt lose for bj so why change???he can create a cardio machine.n at least bj could go five rounds.now cannot even one.

  15. Kekoa says:

    Hope da respect u got stick wit u ur whole career fight everyone like u da champ & train 110% no take anyone litely eva.

  16. Fast Eddie says:

    What’s up with the cardio program over at Team Penn?! Whoever’s running it…fire him/her immediately. These boys can’t even make the second round.

  17. This guy says:

    Just watched Reagan’s fight. Looked good that first round, and for being as tired as he was you could still see his skill. Unfortunatly I cannot see him doing much better unless he trains elsewhere. The guy he fought had a little more experience than him, and was a much lower level of BJJ than him. But still was able to grind out a convincing win.

    I really would love to see what he could do if he trained with guys who tested him in training every day.

    Still, he is a braver man than most, including me.

  18. Fan says:

    BJ Was eating Ribs and all kinds of other crap food night before the fight, Im no rocket scientist but there is no way you should be eating that crap night before a fight. Whats wrong with you guys?

  19. Free Naked Emo Lion says:

    There is a new martial art that the Penn camp needs to incorporate into their training:

    Exercise

  20. Frank E says:

    Win lose or draw we got nothing but love for Bj & Reagan

  21. Twayne says:

    You have my Ohanas support to da fullest bossman! Cant wait to see you get back in there… IMUA PENN BROS!!!

    100% BJPENN.COM ALL DA’ TIME!!!

  22. Frank Trigg says:

    BIG SUPRISE…Another lazy Penn. It’s wise to learn from others mistakes. I don’t think Reagan is very wise.

    • Jamie says:

      don’t be so judgmental…

      that said, I think training with the Cesar Gracie Team would hone up Penn brothers’ cardio & endurance. They also have quality high level BJJ practitioners and boxers to work with

    • kris crabb says:

      Frank Trigg U always sucked and always will so shut ther F### up fagget. Always talked a good game but never was a champ. Always thought u was bad but never was a champ. All mouth no action. Better stay commentating fagget cause u ain’t sh## in the ring.

      • Frank Trigg says:

        I’m sorry mommy and daddy didn’t hug you enough when you were little. Do you still feel like you have to earn their love?

    • pk9grrr says:

      Frank trigg didnt have cardio problems ,he was just straight useless bahaha

      • Streetsweeper says:

        Yep Trigg’s biggest problem was the RNC, try learning some sub defence Trigg.

        • Frank Trigg says:

          Yeah, I lost to the two most dominate WW of all time by RNC. But I had the balls to get in there and give it everything. I have fought all over the world and have competed on the biggest stage in the world. What have you accomplished?

  23. Bee Jay says:

    yeah… this camp really needs some re-evaluation.

  24. Luke says:

    I got faith in you bro. Props for admitting you didn’t put everything into it. Train hard for the one!

  25. abuka says:

    Marinovich is what the Penns need

  26. David Gutierrez says:

    Bj you still have so much to offer to mma I’ve followed your career since this whole mma in America started and its amazing that how you evolve along with everyone else without a big name camp but I truly believe that you and your bro should consider ceaser gracie camp or maybe even Jacksons down in albuquerque new mexico. Everyone that knows mma knows if you tap into your true potential your unstoppable. Always a fan if you continue to fight or leave the sport.

  27. Fortyb4five says:

    Evan Cutts really showed up in that fight. Tough for Reagan he’ll be back tho! So will BJ!

  28. markeezy says:

    Come on Reagan, you and your bro should know by now that in this day in age of mma you can’t just rely on pure talent alone.

  29. DaRuckuz@gmail.com says:

    Looking forward to da improved Reagan.We still believe in you

  30. drew says:

    as somebody who says hes really going for it, and really putting everything second so his career, why the fuck would you half ass it? hey guys im going to college and going to give it my all, then show back home with straight C’s. come on reagan

    • Medicine Man says:

      damn, that’s right its an all or nothing situation, can’t be claiming if the results don’t back up your words.

  31. Findog23 says:

    why don’t any of these know it all arm chair strength and conditioning experts take your knowledge and get into the octagon with any of the Penn team? either be a fan or don’t and shut the f*** up about how they do or don’t train. they didn’t ask for anyone to be a fan of them. nor did they ask any of us what they should do. they don’t tell you how to plunger the turd from the cafeteria do they?

    • JoWal says:

      STFU, the proof is in the pudding, the TEAM PENN squad is becoming the laughing stock of MMA, They clearly do not know what the F they’re doing when it comes to complete training.

  32. Jack says:

    Reagan, I wish you well in your career and in life. Here’s hoping you do better next time.

  33. ajay says:

    took the fight lightly, dont train hard, bad cardio……….must be a penn thing.

  34. JAG says:

    I am astonished at how some of you can honestly say the things you do..Some make quite intellectual remarks but some are just downright foul mouthed foools!! All this F bombs and Cuss words, saying their lazy, NO cardio, baby brother’s, etc…..

    GROW UP WILL YA’!!??

    Bashing on people who trained their ass’ off and then saying this or that?!!

    FOR ONE: IN 2010 EVAN CUTTS WAS RANKED #1 IN THE AMATEUR MMA WORLD

    TWO: NICK DIAZ IS A GREAT FIGHTER AND EVEN BRADDAH BJ SAID WITH HIS OWN MOUTH “HE’S THE BEST BOXER IN THE WORLD OF MMA”.

    ARM CHAIRED QUARTERBACKS EVERYWHERE MAN!!? LISTEN UP, THEY NEVER MAKE EXCUSES, YES THERE WAS THIS OR THAT IN CAMP BUT THEY BOTH GAVE PROP’S TO THE GUY’S WHO THEY YES THEY BOTH STEPPED IN THE OCTAGON WITH… MOST OF YOU SHOULD LEARN A LITTLE SOMETHIN’ FROM THE PENN BROTHERS!!

    STOP BEING HATER’S AND PLEASE KOKUA SOME OF YOU. FOR YOU PEOPLE WHO DON’T UNDERSTAND HAWAIIAN………………….RESPECT!!!!!!! SHOW SOME!!

    • ajay says:

      hawaiian respect

    • TheBraveReply says:

      maybe go to their website then dumb ass. Go fuck yourself right on out of BJPENN.COM
      Your Welcome :)

    • James Toney says:

      FYI. Bj doesn’t train his ass off. BJ only wants to fight at WW because he wants to be lazy. He doesn’t have to train his ass off. He can make weight no problem. He has gassed in every fight that went passed the 2nd round at WW. At LW he is force to work hard to keep his weight down. He comes into those fights looking good and can go 5 rounds all day.

  35. This guy says:

    Fuck Ceasar Gracie. Blackhouse.

  36. spiritsplice says:

    • This guy says:

      Reagan Penn just did it. Most likley because he knows Hawaii is his fanbase and that Hawaii cares, just because you don’t or even most of the world does not care does not mean there are not a lot of people who want to hear from him.

      Thats fair to say I think. But you know, thats just a way to look at it.

      He does have the Penn name so he is going to be in the spotlight no matter what.

      I really hope he does not get caught up in some hype wagon bullshit though. Its good he got handled in his second fight. Maybe he will learn a lot faster than BJ about good training with guys who beat you up rather than, you know… coddle…

      But I digress..

  37. drew says:

    just found the fight online, um ya know im quite speechless to be honest. i dont like disrespecting at all, but reagan’s cardio has an extremely long way to go if this really is a serious career

  38. ali says:

    What is Penn trying to say, you should know better as a fighter and who your brother is come on!!

  39. dana white says:

    Marinavich i telling you guys
