15 Moments of Instant Regret [GIFs]

B.J. Penn’s Hands Are Looking Sharp

That’s B.J. Penn hitting some mitts at the UFC 107 open workout, and all we can say is, daaaaamn!  We all know that Penn’s boxing skills have come a long way in the last few years, but this gives you a good idea of just how fast his hands are these days.  And yeah, we realize that it’s one thing to look great hitting pads and quite another to do it with a real live crazy person trying to hit you back, but this is still an impressive display from the lightweight champ.  If Diego Sanchez is going to threaten him on the feet, it seems like he’ll have to do it with the variety and unpredictability of his attack, rather than the sheer speed and power.  Good luck with that.

P.S. If you’re wondering how Penn is relaxing in his down time, check out this video where he sits down to watch the 1986 sci-fi action flick "Eliminators," which he describes as "the best movie ever."  We scoffed at that claim initially.  I mean, has Penn somehow not seen "Conan the Barbarian"?  But then we found something that made us rethink that position…



Consider my Netflix queue updated.

I’m not positive I entirely agree with you on this post. Still I am always amenable to innovative concepts. Probably will have to feel about it. Great blog anyway

Conan is the best movie ever, good post @Nate

yea...Fuck Eliminators, everyone know's Total Recall was the best Sci Fi movie from the 80's

Wow, his brother is standing there with arms wide open and BJ spends like 10-15 secs waiting for an opening.

I just watched the "Eliminators" clip in mute, and even then, at the 1:00 mark, I could hear a faint "YES!" through the monitor.


Wierd.

Drew me to him? War penn?

I'm sure these are the same jokers that were calling him Blow Job Penn earlier this year when he was whining about his loss to GSP.

edit: NM exes. I just caught the sarcasm.

War penn FTW!!

Not taking anything away from BJ but it's not hard to make hitting the pads look good... I'd be more impressed if he threw the punches from chin height instead of chest...

@ Barc

Get the fuck out of here with that gay shit...."drew me to him". Good luck with your homo exploits.
Barc- December 10, 2009 at 1:01 pm
BJ's jab and head movement are two of the things that drew me to him in the first place. The other is his icy, unflinching gaze in the cage. The most anyone's ever gotten out of BJ is a blink when a punch comes at him... and that's only with the eye that's taking the shot. Good to see him keeping his hands crisp.

@Horror.

I'll see your youtube link and raise you one of my own...

jimbonics- December 10, 2009 at 12:34 pm
I agree with BJ! Any movie that features a Yes! cartwheel (1:01) deserves praise.
Horror Fighter- December 10, 2009 at 12:33 pm
If Mandroid is more machine than man, shouldn't be Machinedroid?

Just saying.

BTW, THIS is the greatest movie ever: hxxp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wbCsKFY7NxM
Sabado Gigante- December 10, 2009 at 12:28 pm
I think Penn needs to stop messing around with the mits, and start focusing more on defending the Y!C (yes! Cartwheels)...
Sakuraba3900- December 10, 2009 at 12:16 pm
MANDROID!
BuckWild- December 10, 2009 at 12:10 pm
Mike Swick looked quick too! Look what happened to him !
NateGetsIrate- December 10, 2009 at 12:02 pm
So BJ thinks that piece of crap is the best movie ever? Man, I just can't seem to find anything i like about this guy!

I wish he would have said at least said "The Guyver" is the best movie ever (since he's stuck on 80's sci-fi, karate flicks).

bennihan- December 10, 2009 at 11:57 am
coochie with the yes cartwheel ftw
agentsmith- December 10, 2009 at 11:55 am
The difference is that Diego says "YES!" every time he throws a strike instead of merely exhaling. Advantage: Diego.
