The Atlantic Sits Down With BJ Penn   [View Full Version]
MMAcca » Posted 4/30/07 3:11:00PM

Hawaiian native Jay Dee “BJ” Penn is one of the most talented fighters in the UFC. In 2000, he became the first non-Brazilian to win a gold medal at the World Jiujitsu Championship in Brazil. Four years later, he displayed his mastery of mixed martial arts by jumping a weight class to defeat the reigning UFC welterweight champion, Matt Hughes. On January 31, 2009, he will try to repeat his feat of martial arts skill by taking on the current UFC welterweight champion, George St. Pierre, who is regularly ranked along with Penn as one of the top five mixed martial arts fighters in the world.

Actually "JD" is his name... along with all of his brothers. "BJ" stands for "Baby Jay" since he is the youngest.
