This is becoming the single most annoying phrase on this forum. 'There's no man that can beat Penn if he actually trains and gets in shape' is what I keep hearing. The problem is Penn never shows up in shape; either mentally or physically or both.
Frankie stole something from BJ... and he's never going to get it back.
Look at Penn's last 6 fights. His record is 1-4-1. His only win against Matt Hughes and that entire fight was over before anyone started sweating.
Not only has he lost 4 of his last 6 fights.... he's done so in impressive fashion. He honestly looks like he doesn't belong in the cage with some of these fighters.
There are always a million excuses why or how he could change that... but the fact is, he hasn't and I don't think he's going to.
It's time to let BJ Penn go.
