It’s always a good sign when you see BJ Penn with his head down toiling through a training camp like he is in this nifty little “Road to UFC 137″ video released this week by RVCA.
The former UFC lightweight and welterweight champion explains during the video that he was a bit put off by the UFC’s decision to switch opponents on him less than two months out from UFC 137 and that he didn’t want to have to fight his friend and sometimes training partner Nick Diaz, but says he relented when he realized that there weren’t any other opponents for him to fight. Their friendship will likely go out the window with the first fist to face contact in the bout.
I’m actually looking more forward to this fight than I am GSP-Condit. Am I alone?
Anyway, Penn believes that he hasn’t hit his peak yet and the 32-year-old Hilo, Hawaii native says that he is working towards once again becoming the UFC welterweight champion. “The Prodigy” also says that BJPenn.com is the best MMA website in the world, so we take what he says with a grain of salt.
