Dana White on BJ Penn’s performance:
“He looked great. I’ve been waiting for this for years. He’s put the time and effort into this, he’s proven again that he is the real deal. He’s been coasting on talent for ten years, now he’s serious,” commented Dana White. The undeniable truth poses questions of future contender legitimacies for the prodigy Penn. Who is next in line to give BJ some serious competition?
“It’s hard to pick out weaknesses in BJ’s game. He’s such a good athlete which is a phenomenal foundation to start off with. Not to mention he’s a good technician when it comes to submissions and he’s a great boxer. At this point at 155lbs, it’s hard to see who has a definite shot at taking him out.” Dana White revealed plans to take the UFC Hawaii next year which would surely see a fight card that would include BJ Penn.
Dana White on Diego Sanchez:
“In 10 years of being in this business, I don’t know if I’ve ve ever seen anybody more busted up than Diego is right now. His whole lip is split open in half, in two different places. When I say split open, it’s torn down to this stuff down here [indicating a point on his chin]. His forehead is as open as [Marvin Eastman], the kid that Vitor Belfort kneed [at UFC 43]. They pulled that thing wide open. His face? I think his nose is broken. I don’t even know how Diego kept coming forward. He’s a tough kid, man. I’m almost positive his nose was broken by the third round. That Tony Robbins [expletive] works.”
