If BJ Penn Loses to Jon Fitch ‘The Prodigy’ Already Has an Excuse Ready to Go

(Video courtesy

Former UFC welterweight and lightweight champ BJ Penn suffered a bizarre injury recently.

Apparently "The Prodigy" was bitten by a spider on the back of the head while doing some promo in Australia and the sore became so infected that it caused some of his hair around the affected area to fall out. Hopefully for his sake, Jon Fitch doesn’t take him down and mop the canvas with his dome at UFC 127 like he usually does with opponents or else we may see BJ featured on

On a side note, what the hell is up with BJ’s coke nails?  Does he practice the ukelele in his spare time?

Maybe this explains why GSP’s eyes looked like they’d gone through a cheese grater the first time they fought.

they definitely check finger nails when they are checking the gloves before a fighter enters the octagon, there's no chance he fights with nails like that.

Haha. We sent BJ back home with a little souvenir.

On the brightside it probably hurt more than anything fitch is going throw at him with come 127.

"ulcerated tissue wasting syndrome"

a few celebs who have battled this are Jenna Jameson and Seal.

Yep there`s lotsa creatures that want a piece of ya Down Unda .
Looks to me like the bite of the White Tail spider .
BJ will want to keep on top of that wound as they can cause a ulcerated tissue wasting syndrome .
Lotsa women get bitten when removing clothes from the wash line ,these lil fuckers love to hang out on washing as it dries outdoors .
Don`t be surprised if BJ has complications linked to this incident ,White Tail spiders are NASTY !

It would be great it BJ got bit by the same kind of spider as Peter Parker did.
I bet GSP and Spidey are the only two that could keep Jon Fitch off them in a fight.

This is not such a hot match for BJ, Jon Fitch will most likely be too much for him.
Not saying the fight will be boring or overly exciting, I just think BJ will be yet another victim of working from the guard while not getting pointed for it by the judges. Fitch will do enough for the win and if Cecil is there it will be 30-27 for Fitch once guaranteed.

Heal? Oh. Ha! Why he?

Those are his nasty nails. Look at the reflection on the left side of the screen around the :03 second mark.

Aren't his nails supposed to be check before each fight?

I think the title should say "When" instead of "If"

Man, can you imagine if the Say Goodnight kid had those things?

Game changer.

Those fucking nails give me the shivers.
busted_cranium- January 20, 2011 at 3:25 pm
Kee-rist almighty! None of you gents have ever had a handjob (or blowjob for that matter)? Fer fuck sake man, those there are lady-digits with the perfectly manicured nails. Seriously, next time you spend a couple bucks on that Asian call girl take a gander at her muff-scratchers.
Spicymeatball- January 20, 2011 at 2:41 pm
Those are BlowJobs nail's people for years have been talking about BJ Penn being an eye poker, and that he has sharp nails.
Horror Fighter- January 20, 2011 at 2:39 pm
BJ has great jiu-jitsu, but he is vulnerable to the spider guard.
SupermanPunch- January 20, 2011 at 2:01 pm
i don't think that's his hand
Douchey McDoucherton- January 20, 2011 at 1:59 pm
that bald spot should be the least of bj's problems compared to the baldo renaldo he's got going on.
Boo- January 20, 2011 at 1:58 pm
Those nails are grody.
LOKI- January 20, 2011 at 1:50 pm
Did he say 'hit the reefer'?
Jugger- January 20, 2011 at 1:46 pm
Trim those nasty things. The nails are nastier than the spider bite.
