So BJ can jump out of a 3 foot end of a pool facing forward and stick the landing. But Jake Rosholt can do it BACKWARDS! It's near the end of this short clip after he does the forwards:

Awe, he didn't say "3ft." like Penn did, very disappointing, but still that's pretty crazy for a dude at like 200lbs.

I can't imagine how difficult that is forwards, backwards seems difficult and awkward.

Haha, I like this guy. I lol'd at the way he swam over to the 3' end.

I really want him to beat Leben.

Rosholt is a hell of an athlete, I really hope that he can be successful in the UFC

good for him, good for him,

i wanna see mma fighters do commercials like the nfl players do, idk what there called but the seemingly impossible stunts. like catching eight balls blindfolded or through a wooded wall.

I think I saw BJ in the background! It is when Jake jumps out backwards.

I don't see how the direction you're facing would make it much harder... The difficulty is in propelling yourself high enough through the water, not in actually landing on the ledge. Maybe a little more awkward but the fact that he weighs more is what actually makes it more impressive IMO.
