BJ Penn was just on JustScrap radio...
Talking with Jens and them about his upcoming fight.
Seems to have some motivation to beat Tri Star, not necessarily Rory. It's obvious he has some serious unfinished business and unsettled feelings with that gym after the last GSP fight. I am inclined to believe that he will take this fight serious and actually come in with some fire. it would be detrimental to lose to that gym again for him and his psyche.
As far as training goes. He will not be going back to the Marinovics, or at least he says he's not. He did say for the month leading up to the fight, he will be out of Hawaii and somewhere with a good stable of fighters around him.
Blamed his cardio problems on:
Overtraining. Peeking too early.
Didn't give much of his gameplan away, but did use the word aggressive.
