MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

‘Title Shot’ Caption Contest: BJ and a Gun

After arranging a visit by BJ Penn to his Army unit at Fort Lewis, MMA writer Kelly Crigger was inspired to dig deeper into the subculture of mixed martial arts, and find out what would compel a person to sacrifice all worldly comforts for the opportunity to beat up a stranger in a cage. Over the next year, he visited leading MMA camps including Team Quest, American Top Team, and Sityodtong, and interviewed fighters at every level of the game. The result is Title Shot: Into the Shark Tank of Mixed Martial Arts, which, no bullshit, is probably the most insightful and essential exploration of the MMA lifestyle that you’ll ever read. We highly suggest that you buy it, but you also have a chance to win a signed copy right here.

Check out the photo above — one of thousands that Crigger took during the preparation of his book — which shows The Prodigy at the Fort Lewis shooting range. (As Crigger explains: “We took him out to bust some caps, but he couldn’t learn to hold the weapon for shit.”) The two readers who provide the best captions in the comments section below will win a signed copy of Title Shot. Contest ends Sunday night at midnight ET; feel free to enter multiple times. Good luck…

After watching GSP's takedown defense, BJ decided the double leg wasn't enough to take him down.. he needed a new kind of shot.

The spectators at the gun range watched in silent anticipation, for they all knew that if BJ didn't hit the target with the first two rounds, he would be too fatigued to do so when the third round came.

Dana White is creating a new television series, The Most Dangerous Game; starring BJ Penn and Dick "the shotgun" Cheney.

32 fighters will enter and try to survive the deadly duo.

16 will get UFC contracts.

16 will depart this 'mortal coil', and enter the Great Octagon in the sky.

The ultimate in pay-per-view.

Knowing that his upcoming fight with GSP could go past the 3rd, BJ is taking his extra rounds training very seriously.

Man, I really want that book....

K-Flo's Camp to BJ's - "while you're shuckin’ and duckin’, lootin' and shootin', we will be hustlin’ and muscilin’, finishin' and grimacin'! (and probably losing to Joe Stevenson, hence causing a debate about my legitimacy as #1 contender... Was I talking out loud? Was I? No further questions!)

Who the fuck would give dracula a gun? Oh wait its just BJ, go ahead then.

For those days when your just to tired to get the blood out with you're hands
Century Sam- August 28, 2008 at 2:06 am
Well normally we don't give people who punch cops in the face semi-automatic weapons, but since you're "the Prodigy"...

In his spare time, BJ Penn likes to go around town with a gun and tell people that Cagepotato.com is the best MMA blog in the world. Those who disagree will be brutally executed. The owners of Fightlinker.com, Bloodyelbow.com and MMAjunkie.com have all been shot. Yes, BJ has licked all their blood.
