RVCA Video of BJ Penn Road to UFC and my thoughts
To start off, this is a compelling video. It starts with Reagan and his recent bout in EliteXc followed by the entire Penn team heading to Cali for training at the RVCA headquarters, all in preparation for UFC 137. It’s a very well made video, interesting, compelling, exciting and full of information and familiar faces. A very in depth look at a training camp.
Some interesting points:
- BJ Penn tried to get a different fight when he was offered Nick Diaz.
- BJ Penn and Nick Diaz have been training partners recently.
- BJ talked with Nick Diaz’s camp, both tried to get different opponents.
- BJ also has a serious stiched gash above his eyelid just below his eyebrow.
- BJ was pretty pissed with the UFC when he heard Condit was gonna fight GSP.
- His trainers make a point of hoping for his motivation to reach it’s peak and BJ reaches his potential.
