The latest maddeningly brief video from BJPenn.com shows the Prodigy hanging out at his gym with Fedor Emelianenko and Fedor’s constant road-dog Gegard Mousasi. But when and why did Fedor fly to
Hawaii? [Ed. note: Right, he's in California this time. And so is Fedor. Got it.] As usual, there are no answers, and the mystery of BJ grows. Still, the idea of Fedor and Gegard joining Penn’s already stacked training camp should give Kenny Florian fans the heebie-jeebies. Assuming, of course, that BJ actually trains with these people. All we know is, directly after this fight, Emelianenko jumped out of BJ’s pool. And he was at the bottom of the deep end at the time. And he was standing on one leg.

What better way to prepare for an upcoming fight than letting yourself be used as a training dummy for California’s most athletic and explosive police dog? Watch as Anthony "Rumble" Johnson goes from hardass to skeered in .02 seconds when he hears Billy bark for the first time (1:41 mark), and gasp in horror as the K9 goes to work (1:55 and 2:36 marks). This motherfucker is tenacious. "I’m no human’s bitch, but I was a dog’s bitch today," Johnson says. Is it possible that Billy read AJ’s file beforehand? Also, will Johnson really need to lose 50 pounds before his UFC 104 fight against Yoshiyuki Yoshida?

Johny Hendricks — one of the three WEC vets who will be making their Octagon debuts at UFC 101 an August 8th — discusses his matchup with Amir Sadollah and mentions Sadollah’s heart as his biggest asset. Hendricks isn’t counting on Amir’s ring rust to be a factor, and plans to stay in his face. The 25-year-old fighter is 5-0, comes from an incredibly decorated collegiate wrestling background, and generally seems like a good dude.
