B.J. Penn has relocated his camp to Southern California in an effort to prepare for his UFC 137 bout against Carlos Condit, and he’s brought Kendall Grovie and younger brother Reagan Penn along, as well.

Kendall Grove is going to be a great sparring partner for BJ

BJ Penn beat Frankie Edgar more times than Benson Henderson beat Frankie Edgar.

IM not sold on Grove being a good training partner for BJ...Why cause I actually think BJ can beat Grove...but I guess he likes his reach and frame to help prepare for Condit...

Bj should try harder to get his act together. Going to CA, is the least he could do. He should train with Rashad Evans, so he can improve his wrestling, than go to a real camp like AKA (considering Fitch won't get a rematch) or ATT. BJ needs to get better cardio so he can fight well in the second and third rounds. Especially now at ww, where he will be pushed much harder. He looked tired vs. Edgar both times, and all he did was try to follow Edgar, couldnt cut off the cage he was too slow, but vs Hughes he was very fast, luckily it ended quick, because that speed dissapates quickly when getting gnp'd.

BJ should go to high elevation. They don't make pancakes for quitters past 5000 feet anymore.

I do not believe it. I believe Penn is on vacation - visiting the many beaches of Southern California. I bet he is at Santa Monica beach right now hanging out with Dennis>>>

BJ now has a slighter chance at beating Condit now.

You think his chances are worse for training in Cali? I mean, training with Kendall Grove is less like steel sharpening steel and more like steel denting aluminium.... But at least he's here on the mainland!

Most likely nobody.

Brandon Melendez is the worst head coach ever.
