So you want B.J. Penn to stop his courageous fight for truth, justice, and a no contest? That probably means you’re a bad person who hates MMA. Bummer. Penn continues to frame this as a crusade to clean up the sport, which would be great. But odds are the UFC is still not going to give him that "fair fight" rematch he wants. And maybe he should be thankful for that.

King Mo tries to entertain himself while he waits for his Sengoku bout. I have to admit that it’s refreshing to see how much pleasure he gets out of old episodes of “Martin,” but when he starts telling the Japanese media how much he loved pro wrestling as a kid and mentions both The Ultimate Warrior and “Ravishing” Rick Rude as favorites, that’s where I get suspicious. How can you like both guys, Mo? Don’t you know they were mortal enemies?! Just ask Bobby “The Brain” Heenan. He’ll tell you.
