UFC 137 Results: B.J. Penn Retires After Loss to Nick Diaz
In the post fight interview with Joe Rogan, Penn said that he is ready to retire. Penn told Rogan "Hats off to Nick Diaz. He's the man. Joe, this was probably the last time you'll see me in here. I can't keep performing at the top level. That's it Joe. I got a daughter and another daughter on the way, I don't want to go home looking like this. I'm done."
In case you missed it live, or just want to relive the action from the UFC 137 main event, here's a quick highlight video from ESPN on the thrilling bout between Nick Diaz and B.J. Penn.
BJ got beat up. What a great fight it was.
Thought this'd be a fitting pic to end this thread:
and on a side note, B.J. has released a statement saying he was "gonna take some time off to relax and teach" so he may not be retiring after all!
Is that pic for real ? I love it.
yea it's for real, those dudes were/are homies who really and truly didn't want to have to fight each other, but manned up and did what they had to do, no hard feelings afterward cause it was "just business"! both of them dudes moved up on my favorites list after seeing how they handled themselves in and outta the cage after that fight!!!!!
