Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Has B.J. Penn Lost His Damn Mind?

(Plotting his next move…)

Someone please explain to me what has happened to B.J. Penn.  Did he suffer some sort of brain trauma in his fight with Georges St. Pierre?  Is he playing an elaborate practical joke on all of us, or does he just crave attention?

First Penn came out this week claiming that Kenny Florian, the man who will likely face Penn in the Octagon next (coincidence?), sent him an email before UFC 94 to tip him off about GSP’s greasing.  When Florian denied it, asking Penn to produce the email as proof, Penn changed his story completely.  In a video post to yesterday, he claimed it was a text, not an email, and it was sent to a member of Penn’s camp, not Penn himself, and that it included charges of steroid use.  

I’m going to have to call shenanigans, as they say, and for several reasons.

1) Whatever I may believe about B.J. Penn, I think he knows the difference between an email that arrives in his inbox and a text message sent to one of his friends.  My grandfather knows the difference between those two things, and he doesn’t have a computer or a cell phone.

2) If Florian really did send this text, why didn’t Penn produce it as soon as Florian called him a liar in public?  All he has to do is show us the text message in one of his video blogs, show that it came from Florian’s phone number, and the debate is over.

3) Why would Florian, who has been waiting in the wings for a shot at Penn’s title for months now, send a text message to his future opponent alerting him to potential cheating by GSP?  Florian needed Penn to lose in order to get a shot at his belt sooner rather than later.  It wouldn’t make any sense for him to help Penn, nor would it make sense for the host of “MMA Live” to go spreading gossip about fellow UFC fighters via text message.

Talking with Steve Cofield today, Penn entourage flunky Troy Mandaloniz also claimed that St. Pierre was on steroids, backing up the claim with such sound reasoning as, “Look at the body. He looks to me like he’s pretty suspect.”

Yeah, or like he works his ass off in the gym every day.

It’s possible GSP is on something.  It’s hard to take a pro athlete at his word these days when he says he’s all natural.  It’s also possible that he’s a greaser, and that KenFlo sent a text to warn Penn about it (though it obviously didn’t help him any).  

If that’s the case, Penn should prove it, or else shut up about it.  The longer he drags this out, the more pathetic he looks, like a guy who can’t accept a legitimate loss.  If this is all for attention, or to drum up interest in a bout between Penn and Florian, it’s even sadder still.  Every show can’t be the BJ Penn(.com) show, just like every fight can’t be a rivalry match. 

If he’d just focus on fighting, like he used to, maybe we’d be paying attention for the right reasons.  Then instead of telling us who is and isn’t an honorable champion, he could simply show us.

BABY JAY, I'm from Hilo and been watching you fight for years. I respect you for all of your accomplishments but you're going to far. Just stop all this nonsense and train. You got beat by a better fighter. You couldn't stop his WRESTLING skills. That's how you got demolished not by his grease. So please do us a favor here in your hometown. SHUT YOUR BABY JAY mouth up! Your embarrasing us. JUST WORK MORE IN YOUR WRESTLING SKILLS SO THAT YOU WOULDN'T GET MOUNTED AGAIN.

BJ Penn's diet is high in chicken shit and pussy juice.
gspfan- February 24, 2009 at 2:54 pm
this is all bs, bj penn needs to get over the fact that he lost, the greasing did not change the outcome of the fighter, the better fighter cam out there and proved to everyone he was better so BJ needs to just accept the fact that he cant beat gsp.
ArmChairFighter- February 16, 2009 at 11:28 am
How come none of BJ's excuses included phrases like, "I'm a quitter", "he's a better fighter than me", "I didn't prepare enough", "He worked harder than me".....this "child" has no character.

sigh... barfing 2 different strories like that doesn't sound very credible. Why wait that long to pull that story out?
wtf As a professional, BJ should have learned better.
He's is an amateur

The more Penn talks and drags people into this silly nonesense, the more he looks like a nut. Everyones in on it, everyone knows GSP is cheating they're just lying. Anything, but he got his ass whupped.

Look, could GSP be on steroids, sure I suppose. In pro-sports nothing suprises me. Could Kenny Florian have sent Penn/Penn's guy and e-mail/text message. Yeah, I guess so. Prove it or shut your cake hole.

Penn is starting to sound like a jilted boyfriend spreading rumors about the girl who blew him off.

Actually YOUR FATHER you are complete daft moronic fucktard, and a wrong one at that, you spew your stupid shit like tug gay!
Your both right for each other, you act like you know something when you dont KNOW fucking shit. (how does that feel?)
you stupid cocksmoker the doctor was looking at him, and his cornerman above them on the outside of the ring made the 'slashing" motion, and told the doctor he was done, and THEN the doctor told the ref......get it right you pompous moronic slab of fucking goofiness. And BJ Penn didn't say anything about GSP being greasy until AFTER the fight, like the next day, he was busy getting his eggs scrambled like yours obviously are. You really need to go watch the video again cause you have the memory of ...oh say a BJ Penn.

Has anyone heard BJ give the slightest public acknowledgement to GSP for his victory?? I sure as hell hav'nt. And that is one of the biggest reasons why BJ keeps getting shit on, he is a poor loser plain and simple and the average fight fan doesn't like to see a poor loser ( no matter who he is ) So, until you start seeing BJ give George a little recognition for his victory its unlikely you will see any of the BJ bashing stop.

BJ acknowledged GSP's victory in their first fight, and would have this time too if there wasn't this huge controversy. I don't think people realize how big of a deal a little bit of lube makes. Most of these people here would really benefit from taking a physics class, so they can learn the properties of a lubricant. A very minute amount can make a gigantic difference, and can cause a person to have to use huge amount of more energy than they normally would have, causing them to get exausted much quicker than normal. It can also make it completely impossible to apply a successful submission.

It's sort of humorous to see all these people who have never fought a day in their lives, and have no idea what it's really like, making these absurd statements. I suggest to all of these people here to grab a friend of yours' hand, with each of you holding on as tight as you can, and then try to pull apart while still holding tight. Then try the same thing again with a little bit of vasaline on your hands, and you notice that the difference is phenominal.

Would no Vas has changed the outcome of the fight? maybe not, but it's possible that it very easily could have. People need to get in there and fight under the two different scenarios so they'll know them themselves the difference it truely makes, and then afterwards they'll realize how ignorant they've sounded up to this point.

@ "Fedor a million ankles"
@ Your Father - Shut the fuck up dumb ass, the only nuthugger here is you. BJ Penn is despicable. I don't understand how anyone can still be a fan of him after he quit in the middle of a title fight.

Listen you ignorant FUCK!!! I'm more of a fan of GSP than I am of BJ's. And for you to say that he quit in the middle of a title fight just proves how fucking ignorant and immature you are. BJ had no choice in the fight being stopped. The doctore recomended to the ref that the fight be stopped, and the ref, like they do 100% of the time, took the doctors advice and stopped the fight, you immature childish fuck. Learn the facts before you go making a fool of yourself.

And then you make the other ignorant, malignant dumb statement that BJ "WOULD" have said something during the fight, when he "DID" say something during the fight. The greasing was caught on film, and was eventually noticed by an official from the athletic commision, was noticed by Frank Mir, and noticed by Dana White, amongst many others. This greasing is in fact illegal, but decisions are not overturned based on it. These regulations and policies are a matter of public record.

You may have been successful at conceiling your foolishness thus far, but you've definately revealed it now.

Good job :)

i have a hard time bekieving that passing cars don't throw stuff at BJ when he jogs by, he makes hawaii look bad. the only reason he is relevent in the ufc is because he hasn't lost or deserted the belt yet.
Fedor a million ankles- February 15, 2009 at 2:34 am
Yes it's pretty evident that BJ is only trying to smear GSP's image. If he was having trouble holding guard because GSP was too slippery, then he would have said something during the fight and it's be on camera and GSP would have his title stripped.

GSP's cornerman is a sneaky, cheating piece of shit who knew EXACTLY what he was doing and did on purpose. He should never be allowed to corner again. I do not hold this against GSP, all of his wins are legit in my eyes.

For sure after Florian loss BJ will say something like that:
I wasnt focused for that fight. You know... all that grease talk... I lost to KenFLo but it was "GSP grease" fault, but now Im ready I never trainned so hard, I changed, now i train like 5 days on 5 off. I work hard man, we go to the death !!!!!! OH sorry, iv already used that one... We go somewhere else, ok ? Just listen !!! Im telling you, I did changed, now Im focused !!!!!!!

Yup. Ben Fowlkes.

The article isn't bashing him because he's a fighter on the down. It's couched against BJ for going bat-shit crazy and whining and making excuses. If he REALLY TRULY thinks that GSP was cheating and thats how he won, he would have gone ahead and filed that complaint, ten times over.

What BJ is doing now, just doesn't make sense. He's just trying to bring GSP down. Shame he couldn't work this hard for a takedown in their fight.
Whats this world coming to.- February 14, 2009 at 10:32 pm
I realize no one is forcing me read these articles, but I think it would be nice to hear from someone a little more open minded. Maybe some one with a little common sense and reason. That was some bias BS. I can't imagine someone being upset about his opponent cheating. I don't care how small the infraction, if I dedicated 3 months of my life to something and some bull went down like that, I'd be pissed.
I like Penn and I like that he talks sh__t. Half the fun is the banter before and after the fight. Fighters are typically cocky and some are a little more verbal about it. No I don't think greasing changed the fight, I think BJ lost to a bigger stronger fighter. I just thought I'd take BJ's side cuz everyone else wrote him off. A year ago we were singin BJ's praises and now these articles are chopin him down. Lets all jump ship when a fighters down.

I think I know what BF stands for.

Seems Blow Job is saying all kinds of things to keep his face in the public. To bad GSP beat it uglier than it was, and it seems brain damage is the next step.
After Kenny fucks up BJ, his next shit will involve aliens greasing up his asshole and injecting HIM with steroids...fucking cheating aliens!

That's one of the most ignorant things I've heard some one say on here. It appears as though you have very poor perception. B.J. never lied in the show, he simply didn't answer his phone. His brother didn't lie either, because he didn't know where B.J. was at at the time he talked to Dana.

You need to remember that this show was filmed earlier, and then edited and pieced together after the fact. It's easy to watch the airing of the show in it's final editing, when everything is already hindsight by that point, and make ignorant judgments accordingly, but his brother didn't have the luxery of hindsight at that time, and only told dana what he believed to be true at the time.

I don't know... Maybe you suffer from immaturity?

really do you work at the border???? i think the random drug tests he and penn both had to pass 2 months before the fights would have picked up some steriods in his system...been caught huh? in what organization was he caught juicing??? really curious about this whole statement of yours mr. border gaurd
