It is exactly what he said.
"I want to fight BJ before he leaves the sport"
So basically he wants to fight and beat BJ Penn at his lowest stages in his career. To get him on his record before Penn calls it quits.
It is exactly what he said. It is plain and simple. Some people may not give a shit. But I just get annoyed when young fighters call out old deteriorating fighters of the golden era.
It is just my opinion....but it is a coward move. Or it is at least the easy way to get known. If you want to be the best and test yourself...ask to fight legit guys who are winning. Not just a guy with a name.
It is clear as day as to what he is trying to do here. Would he be calling out Penn if he were the animal he was back in the day? My guess would be no.
Just like how Schaub beat CC and everyone was calling him the legend killer because they figured he'd beat Nog also. Thankfully Nog kicked his ass. But all him and the UFC were trying to do is build him up off of names that are no longer close to the top of their game.
