Created by the "massive" 8.8-magnitude earthquake earlier today in Chile:



Damn, I'd be scared if I was in BJ's position. Let's hope nothing happens.

**After you watch the first vid, there are 4 or 5 more under it.


PROJECTED TO HIT 4:30ET/2:30MT

They are going to broadcast live in about 20 minutes. Crazy.

BJ could prove that he's ready to go up and challenge GSP again by defeating the Tsunami.

(I believe he can. Prayers go out to everybody impacted...especially Chile at the moment. )

Dana should get some cameramen over there, that'd be a nice HL real Ko for BJ,

i can just picture him beating his face/chest and licking his gloves as the Tsunami slams upon him and after theres BJ still beating himself licking his gloves

Flashes of Penn landing the flying knee on sherk come to mind.

I dont know if this is somethin people should be laughin and jokin about. alot of people could die and get hurt if this tsunami hits hilo. not a good time to make jokes about bj steppin up in wegiht or whatever, IMO

BJ is in the middle of this and even he can make jokes about it....talking about running from the tsunami to work cardio.

It's not necessarily a laughing matter, but I don't think anyone has crossed any lines either. The people of Hawaii have the benefit of knowledge and warning with this particular tsunami...so, hopefully the casualties are minimal. I'm currently watching CNN, who is providing live coverage.

sorry if i offended anyone. i automatically go that direction w/this kind of stuff....pretty much always even when it's directly impacting my household.

bj is my favorite fighter and i'm following along on his site and it's true that if he can take out a tsunami he could totally handle GSP

CNN just played some footage from BJPenn.com

His site is sure to get some hits after that...hopefully it doesn't bring it down from the traffic.

I think they're showing his webcam stream live.

edit: It is confirmed that it is BJ's Skype feed being shown live.

they should give credit for the stream. i'm watching on fox. it certainly looks like the water is getting sucked out at the moment.

He's getting credit on CNN. His website is on the screen and they've mentioned the site several time...even though I'm sure these guys have no idea who BJ is.
