Regan Penn: "I disrespected the sport"

Quote:
Following a night of less than thrilling mixed martial arts action, ProElite vice president of fight operations T. Jay Thompson tweeted, “Never again.”

The resurrected MMA organization was hoping to break in their new HDNet broadcasting deal with a spectacular fight card that would keep fans on the edge of their seats. Well, the fans were on the edge of their seats, but that was because they couldn’t wait to get out of the iWireless Center in Moline, Illinois.

One of the card’s many disappointments was Reagan Penn (Pictured), younger brother of UFC superstar BJ Penn. In his professional debut in August, Reagan easily submitted Paul Gardiner within one minute and 10 seconds of their contest. For his follow-up fight at ProElite II, he was completely gassed before the 1stRound horn even blared.

Although he manged to last the entire 15 minutes, just barely, Penn wound up dropping a lopsided unanimous decision to Evan Cutts when it was all said and done. In an official statement released on BJPenn.com, Reagan suggested he didn’t have the best training camp and promised to give MMA another go:

“I would like to let all the fans know that I’m gonna give it one more shot. Congratulations to Evan Cutts, he kicked my ass pretty good tonight. There were some things that went on in my training camp but I am not here to make any excuses. I could have done more, I was being stubborn and thought I could walk through this fight by half ass’ing it but now I know what it’s like when you’re in there and you feel like you can’t hold your arms up.

I disrespected the sport a little bit, but sometimes the best wake up call is getting your ass kicked. I promise my fans, friends and family that I will never let this happen again. Expect me back and better than ever in 2012.”

I don't see how he can go on living, knowing he disgraced the great Penn name.
