I think the difference in how BJ looks and who he brings in for training camps makes it pretty evident whether or not he is motivated. When he is motivated he brings in better guys to train with and looks better because of it both physically and how he is prepared skill wise.

I would argue the only one of those 3 fights he was motivated for was the Jon Fitch fight and that was a fight I thought he didn't stand a chance in, unfortunately for Penn the size and strength difference was evident and trying to drag Jon Fitch around the cage ran him out of gas.

The Diaz fight Penn absolutely ran out of gas and quit after actually proving to be the better fighter in the first round which baffled me because it was like he was sure he could destroy Diaz in the first 3 minutes and pretty much trained for that.
