Correct me if I'm wrong, but is that the flag of England over Bj Penn, the American's, Shoulder?

Yeah apparenlty the hawaiian flag is pretty similar...




Why is he wearing a state flag though? It seems kind of silly to have George holding up his country's flag, and here we have a guy from the US holding up his state flag.

BJ's Hawaiian. Represents his heritage.

Edit: This is the actual Hawaiian flag to avoid any confusion:

Underdstandable, but you would think someone in the UFC marketing department would look at that poster and say, "Hey some people might look at that and think it's Brittain vs Canada." I mean obviously anyone who knows MMA knows BJ isn't sporting a Brittish flag but I'm sure someone who doesn't watch MMA would see that poster and think it was a UK vs Canada rivalry.

Cool, minus the retarded flag confusion. It does look like a British flag. And anyone who doesn't know what the Hawaiin flag looks like would assume that to be a British flag by looking at the poster. It should be a Canadian flag vs an American flag. Flaggot.

Seriously, besides the flag drama... Thats the dopest UFC poster yet. You know its going to be a serious match!

BJ Penn is SUPER deep into the decolonization of Hawaii... Thus the traditional music when he enters the ring instead of Linkin Park or whatever is trendy at the moment. Extremely involved in keeping Hawaii native/indigenous and i can respect that.

On a side note i cant wait to see that Spike special that follows both of them around.

Right now I am a second semester senior in high school... and I can honestly say that at this point I am looking more forward to this than I am to graduating... (Which I am looking forward to a lot and I expect a ton more in the later weeks!!!)

Hawaii is so far away from the actual Continental United States that it is easier to identify it's inhabitants as Hawaiian and not "American". It is easier to market him as a Hawaiian than it is as an American imo, plus he is very proud of his heritage like others have said. it is the same reason why Kendell Grove wears his flag.
