B.J. Penn: Merchandising Genius

(He’s going to make your car smell delightful.  And he is not joking about this.)

Now this is awesomely ridiculous.  Thanks to reader Erik for the find.  Apparently B.J. Penn sponsor RVCA sees no limit to the amount of Penn-themed crap they can sell to his loyal fans.  In addition to a signature B.J. Penn UFC 94 t-shirt and official B.J. Penn trunks (complete with the painted on black belt, and for only $61!!!), you can also get this cute little air freshener shaped like everyone’s favorite blood-licking Hawaiian for only six dollars.  And yeah, it’s coconut-scented.  What else?

For a guy from a wealthy family (as “UFC Primetime” continually reminds us), Penn sure is willing to put his name on anything for a buck.  Not that we blame him.  If we thought anyone would buy air fresheners of us, you can bet we’d be pushing them every day.  Only ours would smell like whiskey and nachos, which only appeals to the small segment of the population who want their cars to smell like the father who never loved them.

Not sure I understand why, but if someone's willing to buy something...

My BJ Penn cock ring is supposed to be coming in the mail soon.

(sigh) This above all else is what i hate about the sport. I can deal with the morons who talk shit, the judges making stupid calls, and the refs messing up, that happens every now and again in most sports, but the sheer level on which this has become a business...its sad.

And in other marketing news, the B.J. Penn Pen has been delayed by a copyright infringement lawsuit, by Sextoys R Us, the creators of the infamous BJ Pen.

Don't underestimate Penn. He looked great in his last two fights (Sherk and Stevenson).

I am really looking forward to seeing Penn fight GSP again. GSP is phenomenal and I think Penn is fighting at a level that will make the fight interesting.

OK, so St Pierre's bigger, faster, and stronger. GSP has less losses, more wins, more TKO's. GSP's a dominating wrestler, and has better ground and pound. They have the same amount of submission victories. Either BJ's jiu jitsu is overrated or St. Pierre's is underated. And BJ's considered a prodigy??? LMFAO!

At least GSP's defended the ww title, something BJ never did. GSP's a consummate professional, whereas BJ's a cocky prick. I can't wait for the 31rst. It's going to be very enjoyable to watch BJ get schooled. Since the split decision the first time they fought, I feel GSP's fought a higher calibre of fighters and keeps getting better and better. I don't think BJ could finish five rounds if he laid down and had a nap through the first three rounds.

@Hex- I saw the fight, and IMO there was only one clear cut dominant round, and that was round 1, for the rest of the fight GSP was doing take downs and lay and pray wrestling, so to me if anything it was a split decision. But On the 31st, BJ is going to beat him up bad, GSP is an athlete, who uses athleticism in the cage and thinks he is a fighter, BJ Penn is a fighter, a bloodthirsty fighter who now is actually training, and preparing for these athletes who think they are fighters....I think it will be a round 3 TKO by BJ Penn....

Hexed, sorry, this dude WAS called the prodigy for a reason. I used to like BJ alot but his arrogance is getting the better of him. You'll see that when GSP lays the wood to him.
Hexed70- January 19, 2009 at 12:50 pm
@ Everyone boldly predicting a walk in the park for GSP:

Sometimes I feel like I'm one of the few who actually saw the split decision of BJ/GSP 1. You know, the one where GSP was really bloody and beat up in the first round and the second really could have gone either way (depending on how you view takedowns vs. their defense/submission attempts).

Sure, BJ always has the potential to gas, but unlike most fighters, this dude is called the "Prodigy" for a reason.

Roger Huerta is frantically trying to buy this, now.
