Video: BJ Penn The Road To UFC 137

Former UFC lightweight and welterweight champion BJ “The Prodigy” Penn is easily one of the most decorated fighters ever to compete in mixed martial arts. The Hawaiian warrior was scheduled to face Carlos Condit later this month at UFC 137 in his next fight, but will now be facing his friend and occasional training partner Nick Diaz at the event, thanks to Diaz’s refusal to participate in pre-fight media for his original bout against champion Goerges St-Pierre.

Penn’s primary sponsor, RVCA, recently produced a video profiling BJ (as well as his younger brother Reagan, who just started his MMA career) during his training camp for the upcoming event, which includes Penn talking exclusively about the opponent switch which occurred midway through camp.
