B.J. Penn has his eye on Sean Sherk's UFC lightweight title, so he may not be the most neutral observer when it comes to Sherk's positive drug test at UFC 73. But the Hawaii mixed martial arts fighter known as The Prodigy doesn't mince words when it comes to Sherk.

The UFC has matched Penn against Joe Stevenson in January at UFC 80 in Newcastle, England, for the interim 155-pound championship, while Sherk appeals his test for steroids.

"Sean Sherk can say it's a fake interim title, but his belt is no more real that Marion Jones' gold medals," Penn told a gathering of the UFC Fight Club before Friday's weigh-in for UFC 78 at the Prudential Center.

I agree with penn !!

Sherk's belt is not at the same level of the others UFC champ for sure !!

I always try to be cautious about the Sherk steroid test, i want to wait the final jugement but he is not the best guy to talk about the legitimity of a fight for sure !!

I really don't like BJ. I think he talks way too much shit. I know he's a really good fighter but I can't stand to hear him talk. I know it's a given that he's gonna say something about Sherk's whole steroid thing but I'm just getting sick of him. I think it was the season he coached on the Ultimate Fighter that made me dislike him the most. But hey, that's all just my opinion.

Penn does talk too much, I like him as a fighter though...

With Sherk though I find it tough to dislike him because he PASSED the lie detector test that said he had NO knowledge of taking steriods and also there was a steriod found in one of his Xyience suppliments(which of bunch of UFC fighters take, and UFC endorses)....

Penn can think what he wants about Sherk but these two will fight one day and Penn will LOSE, and you know what Penn is going to say? "It doesn't count cause Sherk takes roids" People need to suck it up, have you seen Sherk train? Not saying Sherk has never takin roids and not saying he has, a lot of athletes did even 5 years ago, which probably includes many fighters. You could make a case that possibly Ken Shamrock was taking them in his Prime. You never know. And he is a Hall of Famer...

People just need to let it pass and move on. Hopefully now fighters will be more aware of the Suppliments they take....I know Sherk will.....

BJ Penn speaks the truth and hes the best at 155 in the world. Bring on sherk, he'll tear him apart.

Penn always says whats on his mind. It's good to see fighters sticking up to cheaters.

I am sure that Penn knew Sherk would hear about what he said. I would be willing to bet to that he would have no problem telling it to Sherk's face either as Penn is going to whoop his a** when they fight after he beats Stevenson. I'm glad Penn said it! Someone had to. Sherk was juicing, he didn't cycle off of it properly and he got caught. Now he is looking for the Barry Bonds ignorance excuse to get out of getting caught. I don't care if his products were tainted,(allegedly as I don't believe it for a second). Being a professional athlete, especially one that is as health conscious as sherk, you should pay attention to everything your putting in your body. To say you didn't know that you can buy illegal products over the counter is ridiculous. Everyone knows that, unless you're stupid!

BTW this is not fighter bashing, just my humble opinion, and the truth for that matter. Be a man Sherk and admit what you did.

I agree with BJ. Sherk's title means nothing.
I believe steroids or no steroids...Sherk would have eventually been dethroned anyhow...look at the division.
BJ Penn, Joe Stevenson, Frank Edgar and Tyson Griffin...need I go on?
Hermes Franca should have put him away.
When illegal performance enhancement substances are used it ruins the integrity of the sport, invalidates many matches and titles and in general ruins it for the fair fighters and for us the fans.
If you can't win by training and skill alone and have to resort to those kind of tactics...you really need to analyze what kind of person you really are.
Cheat, scam, deceive and lie...where does it end?
Did Sean Sherk cheat in school? Does he cheat on his taxes? etc.
A scammer is a scammer...a phony is a phony...a cheat is a cheat.
No integrity.

"C'mon, be a man. Fight BJPenn w/o steroids." At least most guys that get caught admit it and move on, take their punishment like a man. He got caught and has NO EXCUSE. Dana is really hurting the integrity of the sport by allowing him to remain champ.

Ha! I can't wait to see Sherk grind Penn into paste. I love BJ the fighter; BJ the person needs a little work.


I understand his feeling about steroids, but give the man his appeals process! He's tested clean for years, he's legendary as the hardest working fighter in the game.

He's got great genetics and he works harder than anybody since Alexander Karelin. Innocent until proven guilty in America, people!
