Not that we’re totally surprised by it, considering his history of playing the blame game, but it looks like BJ Penn has switched from feeling sorry for himself after announcing his retirement following his UFC 137 decision loss to Nick Diaz to making excuses why he lost the fight.
“@nickdiaz209 Look how much bigger you are in this pic..” he wrote, referring to the photo above. “I thought you were gonna scrap from the beginning homie? What was that coward fence holding strategy to tire out the smaller man? Street fighter my ass! I made you fight like glass jaw @jonfitchdotnet poser! I’ll be ready for that weak bs next time we fight!”
It’s interesting that BJ would say that Fitch has a glass jaw since he couldn’t knock him out when they fought. And as far as Nick being bigger, how is that against the rules when they both weighed in at the 170-pound limit? It’s not like Diaz forced BJ to move back up to fight at welterweight.
Did anyone else miss the fence grabbing he’s alleging? Pretty sure if it was a problem Diaz would have been deducted a point for the infraction. But then again, everyone is out to get BJ, right?
It’s pretty cheap to start calling out other fighters like that since he isn’t fighting anymore, but judging by the last line of the tweet, it’s seeming like BJ’s vow that it’s the last time we’ll ever see him inside the Octagon was a hollow one.
When exactly did BJ turn heel? The end of the world must be near when Nick Diaz is the fan favorite in a fight against BJ.
