and saying wang and bj in the same sentence just sounds wrong.
Ya they made Wang out to be the bad guy. I had never seen him not listening or anything so there really is no proof

BJ Penn

Penn did it for two reasons one he was told by Dana White to change things around. So he took what Dana said seriously I think this really shook up his team. Also BJ has shown frustration at wang and the no name blond haired fighter.

Andy Wang is such a baby. At first I felt bad for him when Penn kicked him out. We didn't really see much reason in the past couple weeks for Penn to feel that strongly but that's probably just editing. So I felt a little sorry for him.
Then Jens tells Andy that his team wants him and he'd be happy to have Wang on his team and Andy Wang pouts like a two year old ' Do I haaaaaave to go on their team? Waaaaaa Waaaaaaa. I want to be on BJ's team because I'm Hawaiian too.'
That punk needs to grow up. I can't believe he completely crapped on Jens Pulver right in front of his face like that. Jens basically says 'I don't care you raised you hand to join Penn's team, that's nothing, it's done and I'm happy to have you on my team'. And Andy says 'But I want to be on BJ's team

Over the last few episodes I'm definitely starting to feel that I'm liking Pulver more and more and Penn a lot less.

If anyone has really watched Penn vbefore this show shouldn't be suprised to see him acting like this. He's a bit of an a$$.

I do feel that he was right to kick Wang off of his team. It would seem that they haven't shown much of the back story, but Wang was admitting that he doesn't listen while training or during the fight.

For Wang to act the way he did when Pulver wanted him on his team was just BS. Pulver was much nicer then he should have been about it. I thought that Dana handled it well. "Put the @#$&ing jersey on and get out there. You're was my time, Jens' time and your time." to Dana.

Dana says what we would all want to say with a few well placed F-bombs just for seasoning.

The only thing that he could have added was to call him a F-ing cry baby.

Rep to Dana!

I was impressed with Jens attitude and the Pulver Team. I think he is much more mature than I previously viewed him.

A few comments about a bunch of things that were said here:

I wasn't sure if punting Andy Wang was the right decision at first, because it seemed a bit arbitrary and knee-jerk (of course, you won't ever get the full story on a reality show). But watching him waffle in front of Pulver convinced me that BJ was right. BJ fired him in brutal and spectacular fashion and Wang still would rather be on Penn's team than Pulver's? Dana should have kicked Wang off the show for the blatant disrespect he showed Jens.

Pulver's proven to be a pretty classy guy. The way he talked about his fight with Lauzon and the class he showed welcoming Wang to his team really impressed me.

Wang might be a good guy, but he's got to get his head right. First he disregards Penn's instruction (and completely came unglued when he lost because of it) and then he disrespects Pulver when he offers to take him in.

I don't get these guys (Gabe, Andy, the wall-jumper last season) who get on this show and don't commit to it. How many opportunities like this do you think you get in life? Maybe it's because I'm a little older, but I figure if the chance of a lifetime is in front of you, you don't f**k around.

And what's with Wang's talk about samurais and ronins? That's Japanese stuff, and isn't Wang a Chinese name?

Finally, is there one guy who wears his friggin' baseball cap straight on that show?

We don't know what happened behind the scenes so I cannot really justify my answer. However, from what we were shown, it did look like Penn was using Wang as a scape goat to channel his frustration of being 1-5. Wang was also a little bltch after Pulver and his team accepted him right away and he was all crying over being kicked off of Penn's team. I never want to see that mofo again in the UFC, ever.

Oh I want to see him again. I want to see him fight someone and watch him get KTFO and then cry some more about how he should have used his black belt in BJJ instead of putting his head on a swivel as a punching bag.

Thats exactly it. He wanted to send a message to his team. I think Dana should have sent him home as soon as he started being a girl about going to Team Pulver. He should have been honored they would take him. What a *****. And other guys have lost. Why do they even need him as a replacement. Id rather see them throw Emerson back in there again.
