UFC Champion BJ Penn Joins Organo Gold
BJ Penn, of Hawaii UFC Champion has joined forces with Organo Gold.
About PJ Penn:
Only fighter to ever win both the UFC lightweight and welterweight title, one of Hawaii’s most popular and revered athletes and a top-flight fighter who comes from an affluent family
First non-Brazilian to win a BJJ world title at the black belt level. Earned his BJJ black belt in three years, an astonishing achievement in a sport where it takes the average athlete 10 years or more to reach black belt status (hence the nickname “The Prodigy”) Deft submission skills make him one of the sport’s most feared fighters on the mat, respected for his boxing skills, owns one of the UFC’s best jabs, a reliable chin, and rarely bleeds.
Owns wins over Matt Hughes (twice), Sean Sherk, Diego Sanchez, Takanori Gomi, Kenny Florian, Joe Stevenson, Jens Pulver and Renzo Gracie, among others. A true warrior who is always willing to test his limits, B.J. has fought as high as 205 pounds against Lyoto Machida (a decision loss)!
Boasts extraordinary flexibility and balance, very stout takedown defense, when fresh and not fatigued. Cardio, and an occasionally relaxed attitude toward training, has been his Achilles Heel; B.J. is 13-2 in fights that end inside of the distance and 3-5-2 in fights that go the distance.
