Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

B.J. Penn Wants Wild West Justice For Sean Sherk

(Scene from a jiu-jitsu tournament, or an extremely amicable episode of Maury Povich’s paternity test show?)

If you love your title fights with a side of acrimony (and who doesn’t) then the B.J. Penn-Sean Sherk bout at UFC 84 is definitely for you. It’s no secret that these guys don’t like each other. Sherk thinks Penn’s a quitter. Penn thinks Sherk’s a cheater. It’s a fun little back and forth.

But in a recent interview with Sirius Radio’s “Sports Rage“, Penn kicked it up a notch with his anti-Sherk rhetoric. Here are some excerpts from the full broadcast:

” … I know there are a lot of people out there doing steroids, cheating and every time I run into one of them, I’m going to call them on it and then I’m going to beat the shit out of them …

… It’s going to be a historic night because all the kids out there will realize that you can do it with just hard work alone …He wants to say he has heart and all this different shit, but you can’t confuse steroids with heart.

… What would happen in the old days when you get caught with a couple of aces up your sleeve, they kill the guy right there and that’s why I say Sean Sherk is dead…”

Tell me, who’s still not excited for this fight? Anyone?

Nothing makes for an intense fight quite like death threats. I was willing to ascribe the first one to Penn being a little pumped up following his victory over Joe Stevenson, but after he repeated it with a calm rationale to explain why he wants to murder Sherk, well that’s just plain mean. Also pretty awesome.

Sherk Cheater Shark will loose on the second by submission if not in the first by a knee to the temple.

BJ all of sudden is working and training dare he!?!

BJ only lost to the best of the best when he didn't train hard now that he does I doubt the juice shark will be able to muscle out of that many submissions unless he can put he joints back in place after BJ pulls them out.
Muscle means nothing unless you are trying to be on the worlds strongest man.

Im rooting for sherk all the way. Just cause BJ all of a sudden decides to put in hard work and a solid effort to traing doesnt mean hes gunna walk through the lightweight division. Im always suspect of BJ's conditioning and think it will be a major factor in the fight after the second or event he first round. Plus i think sherk will stand a decent chance of even muscling out of some submissions. Al the way im going for Sherk in 2nd or 3rd round GnP TKO.
