BJ Penn: “I want to prove to everybody, who the best fighter is in the world”

Former UFC lightweight champion, BJ Penn wants to prove to the world, Frankie Edgar, Frankie’s corner, his corner, and everybody, who really is the best fighter is in the world ahead of his rematch with Frankie Edgar at UFC 118 this weekend in Boston, Massachusetts.

Penn, speaking at the press conference, said:

“I think Frankie is a difficult competitor for anybody he fights. He is (in) there. He’s in it to win it and I think what probably made him a difficult opponent to fight against is that him and his team, they had a good game plan. They came out and one is his team had a good game plan and number two, Frankie executed and that’s always a difficult thing to go against.”

“I feel I can be more busy out there and I feel like I can make some tweaks and adjustments and I think him and his corner, they did a great job out there. They work together well. They mixed up the things that they were doing. They actually even masked a couple of the things that they were trying to do with the different names. And I think I’m ready for everything that they got the next time.”

“The loss to Frankie actually made me step back and realize that I want to fight as much as I can, you know. After the fight with Frankie, you know, God willing I have no broken hand or any broken bones or no suspension, you know, I want to, you know, fight next month, fight, you know, next week. I really, you know, I don’t know if I feel my biological clock ticking or what but I just want to get in there and I just want to fight as much as possible and just see it, you know.”

“I’ve kind of spaced my career out actually over the 10 years and I kind of want to make a push to be a true fighter, a person that fights all the time. And I think I’ve got a good training camp and I’ve kind of figured out how to keep myself healthy through multiple training camps. I think I could do it and I think I could try to be very busy and very active. And I don’t want to say that it’s just all about the money, but I wouldn’t mind trying to make some money.”

“I want to prove to the world, I want to prove to Frankie, I want to prove to Frankie’s corner, I want to prove to my corner, I want to prove to everybody, who the best fighter is in the world. Who’s got the most tools, and who can execute better.”
