BJ PENN CONDITION UPDATE; The UFC's Doctor's Diagnosis
Posted by BJPenn.com Staff Writer

As the fans all watched BJ enter the cage for round three against Matt Hughes, it was obvious that something happened to BJ. His hands were down, his punches were off and his dominance of Matt simply wasn't there as it was in rounds 1 and 2. Most people thought and speculated that BJ gassed or wasn't physically prepared (as Matt Hughes alleged). As we previously explained, those thoughts simply are not true.

While in Las Vegas for UFC 64, BJ met with the UFC's orthopedic surgeon and sports medicine doctor in Las Vegas for a physical exam and diagnostic MRI study of his ribs and oblique muscles on his right side. The report verified and substantiated exactly what happened to BJ at the end of second round when he thrusted up and around to gain Matt's back. During this upward and twisting movement, BJ pulled/tore internal muscles located inside and around the bottom right rib and fractured the rib. As explained, this type of trauma can and will cause a constriction of his right lung, leading to a substantially diminished breathing capacity.

While BJ congratulates Matt on his victory, he looks forward to the rematch to continue forward with his dominance; as the fans have seen in his victory over Matt at UFC 46 and the first two rounds of UFC 63.

To all of BJ's fans, we appreciate your support and continued interest. BJ will rest and return with a vengeance.

i didnt get to envolved in this debate right after the fight because i wanted to see if he really was hurt. i gotta say now that i know. i think penn could have won that fight. i guess whether hughes loses or wins, penn and him will be fighting soon.

It explains the fight. However this injury is really no different from not being able to breath through a broken or bloody nose. Part of the game. The better fighter won. A rematch would be extremely good to see though!

Injured or not, BJ is just not a consistent fighter after the first round.

Fight ends in the first round, his record is 5-0.
Fight ends in the second round, his record is 1-0.
Fight ends in the third round or later, his record is 1-1.
Fight ends by decision, his record is 3-3-1.

Good Post. Well maybe if that didnt happen he would have won the fight. I also want to see a rematch since they are 1-1.

I donno, i think he's still maken excuses.

I mean look at BJ's last fights.

BJ vs GSP BJ gassed HARD and thats how GSP won.

And guess what, imo he gassed in the Hughes fight as well, or atleast he would have and hughes would of taken advantage of it.

The only fighter who has gotten away with no extreme cardio is Chuck Liddell, and thats because hes got the punching power to end fights QUICK.

A champion needs to have extremly good cardio to compete in a 5 round fight. Bj penn does not have that type of cardio, this is why he is not the champion.

maybe gsp is the better fighter though. i guess we'll see when he fights hughes. if gsp wins then we should get hughes penn 3 as soon as matt is ready.

No offense, but I'm sure BJ watched his fight against GSP and knows that he gassed. He was saying in all his interviews before the Hughes fight that he has been training 5 rounds non stop and has finally got his cardio where it needs to be. He's not using the injury as an excuse either, he has more class than that. He didn't write that report up, someone else did. We all know who the better fighter was, Matt was the better fighter for about 3 minutes, BJ was for 10 minutes. And whoever compared this injury to a broken nose needs to remember that a broken nose is caused by your opponent, BJ's injury was just a fluke. I think Matt's a pretty good fighter, but he got lucky in this fight IMO.

BTW, good find J. farrell

You mean as soon as Penn is ready. Those ribs don't fix themselves instantly. BUt yea, that is something I am looking forward to. If hughes retains the title, I don't really want to see Penn vs GSP 2 until its for the title. I'd rather penn be forced to fight someone else (Diego) for the number 1 contender spot and then go against hughes again. GSP can take the winner of that on after he runs through anyone else they can find in the 170lb division.
