Oh boy, I have read other people's reactions to this video already on other sites and I just know people are going to "lay into" BJ on here as well...

Tell me when it's over......i can't look

You know that. I know that. It just seemed to me that everyone who's comments I read on other sites - did not even watch the video and just began "bashing" BJ calling him a "cry-baby" still.

I have always been a BJ fan and if the general public doesn't like him,,,well - that makes me an even BIGGER BJ FAN i guess.



I guess I was just expecting many more BJ haters here.

I'm a huge Penn fan but yeah he sort of making people dislike him. He's been my favorite fighter since his first fight with Hughes. I just hope he learns to let things go.

I began being a fan of his at the very same time. My personal opinion is - I don't believe he thinks he could have won nessesarily,,,maybe just hung in longer or possibly gave a much better performance at the least.

And not to jump on "Dana's bandwagon" but he even agreed that the situation was bs and something should be done.

After watching the video, I think BJ is finally focussing on the next obstacle - Kenflo.

Good luck to Kenflo, I believe he will need it. (IMO)

altho I am no longer a penn fan and obviously a gsp fan I think my opinion is fair my problem with this whole debacle is what does bj penn want? a no contest? k well if it does happen who cares the majority of people know he got absolutely crushed, vaseline or no vaseline. does he want a rematch? it doesnt matter it will never happen. thats my problem with penn right now

comments on video itself though bj does look like he's getting into shape Im a little concerned with how much gameplannng bj is doing. if he has the "just scrap" attitude he will get outpointed

a side note the majority of ufc shos have been done in nevada obviously and then california. sherk looks like the most likely number 1 contender right now and hes refusing to fight in california and bj is refusing to fight in nevada so if the 2 square off its not going to be in one of the usual spots

I think he'd settle for GSP being banned for life.

i dont hate bj i wouldnt even say i dislike him but all this shennanigans has really been childish and im kinda tired of every week seeing something knew about bj vs gsp greasing and hearing him cry about why he lost and how the excessive beating was due to greasing definately not skill

BJ says nothing about greasing etc. If anyones offended or whatever by this video, your blowing this out of proportion. Who cares if he dosnt wanna fight in Nevada anymore its one small place out of the world.

The haterade level is ridiculous

at no point in time did anyone say they were offended by this and not fighting in nevada in the UFC is actually kinda a big deal and i dont know so much about the haterade level as much as the nuthugging level
