Tri-Star invites BJ Penn to train with them

openwindowopenwindow Posts: 1,322Free
Basically: Firas thinks BJ Penn is a great fighter with nothing left to prove. But, if BJ wants to keep fighting, Firas invites him to Tri-Star to see what they are all about.

Honestly, I think this would be great for Penn. Penn is definitely nearing the end of his career if its not over already. But if he does keep fighting, I can't think of a better camp to try training at. Tri-star has a lot of fit and very skills guys.
Thoughts?

    He should do it. Granted he's had a rivalry with them for so long, it would only benefit him. I still think he could be a force again some day if he would go back to LW and actually train instead of posting videos on youtube of him chilling in Hawaii and walking on a treadmill.

    Penn could leave an even bigger legacy than he already is. He's always had so much potential. Plus, it sucked watching him get his *** whooped that bad. No one wants to see a legend get beat up on like that.

    Nah I don't think that place is the best for him...they are are great at what they do though which is mold guys...they absolutely destroy vets...look no further then Miguel Torres...they made him pretty much abandon his bjj game and stick to being a point striker which is the last thing BJ needs...He needs a well rounded place that will let his ground game become the go to skill but will also keep his striking as is which is dangerous

    If he's willing to get over beefs then cesar gracie is the place for him

    ATT ain't bad either

    Any team, besides his brother cheerleading him in the corner and Jason Perillo giving him crap advice to keep banging when he's getting hit instead of using his "prodigy" jui-jitsu, would be a better team.
    Better use my strong hand.

    Only if he intends to go back to LW. Penn at any other weight class now doesn't interest me honestly. If not I think he should stay retired. He is a legend with nothing left to prove and I hate seeing him get beat up like he did against Rory.

    Also tri-star be trollin. When did trainers become trolls? What next Greg Jackson invites Nick and Nate Diaz to train? :))

    needs to do it and go back to LW

    This. The sport has evolved past BJ. He doesn't know what to do now that the average contender can actually mix up attacks to the body and legs with their normal shots to the head.
    The internet tells me that that's called love, I'm on the internet cuz I'm an Internet thug.

    I think his best choice would be Team Minotauro/Black House but Tristar is a step up for BJ still

    I'm sure that would be the case since all his running is at sea level right now but that maybe what he needs is to see what the guy who beat him does to train (as in bust his tail in the gym and outside the gym day and dayout)

    No one gets better in thier "comfort zone" its amazing he's in the ufc really with how easy he has to now (not sayin all mma training is easy I'm just sayin when compared to how hard the others work)

  • Why not. He already knows GSP is on something. He would have nothing to hide with BJ around Tri-star.

    Penn will never win another fight in the UFC. He isn't even good enough to be a can crusher and should just retire before embarrassing himself further.

    He should do it, no point staying at WW, they too big nowadays and GSP/tristar can help him rule at LW.

  • openwindowopenwindow Posts: 1,322Free
    ^^ my thoughts. I still think he is a little too small for WW. But Even as he stands, he could be a top 10 LW.
    Training with strong skilled workhorses like GSP, Macdonald or Carmont could really elevate his skills. Plus, Tristar has good cornermen.
    I doubt itll happen, but I hopei t does.

    why not?
    at least do a camp there as a 'testing the waters' of sorts
    Silva. idk how i feel about Silva. I feel like anything he had going for him coming into the UFC was ripped away when Cain pulled that drive by on him back at 146. Poor guy never even saw the Astro Van coming.....

    I wonder how it would be for BJ to train with Rory MacDonald too knowing he beat the **** out of him last fight lol

    we gotta realize BJ has 2 daughters now, hes a family man. It would be hard to him to leave his girls for months at a time to train at a gym so far from home.

    I think us Penn fans needs to realize his GOAT days are done now. There was a time when he could have peaked much better, trained at different camps and evolved his already great game.

    Its probably too late now. Sure Anderson has a huge family and still remains on top, but he has his training close to home, BJ lives in hawaii, nothing is close. Unless he were to move his family to Canada so he could chase a refueled career, but for what? BJ is probably the most wealthy UFC fighter in history. He dosnt 'need' to uproot himself to chase MMA glory again.

    He had his time, just like many before him and like it or not he is one of the best ever.
