BJ Penn Retires… My favorite BJJ fighter
One of the best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighters in UFC history fought a good fight tonight against Nick Diaz, but ended up losing a decision to Cesar Gracie fighter Nick Diaz. In the first round BJ Penn looked great and even took the back of Nick Diaz, but unfortunatly could not finish the fight.
The second round of this Mixed Martial Arts fight was all Nick Diaz in what was mainly a stand up fight. BJ Penn looked as if he gassed in this round but was able to survive and come out a little stronger in the third round. Unfortunatly he was not able to fully recover and ended up losing a decision in the main event of UFC 137.
One thing is for sure though and that is BJ Penn will go down in the UFC Hall of Fame as one of the best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighters in MMA history. BJ helped put Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu on the map and prove that BJJ is one of the most effective Martial Arts Styles in the World. In my opinion BJJ is the elite Martial Art and is light years ahead of everything else if you look at a pure style vs style art.
BJ Penn was an amazing fighter and now gets to be an amazing father to his daughters…Thank You BJ Penn for all the great fights and BJJ matches you gave the World… Osss
