MMA Book of Knowledge - BJ Penn (Resized)
Second, that the style should be an integrated blend, not a disintegrated patchwork hybrid creation. Penn warns us against developing the habit of separating grappling from striking, switching on the fly from one to the other.
Rather, he says, we should always be doing both. Bj's book is made up of techniques that work for him and would be usable by most people. There are no kicking techniques and no leglocks. What is shown are basic techniques, which if done properly, are always dangerous.
Nothing fancy, just master the basics and shove them down your opponent's throat until you beat him. The glaring absence of kicks from the offensive section of the book really jumped out at me. It's clear that B.
Sherk then ducked under another punch — possibly to shoot for a takedown — when he was hit in the head by a flush flying left knee from Penn. Sherk went down and Penn continued with strikes, but the round ended before the referee stopped the fight.
After the fight, in response a question by Joe Rogan about his future, Penn asked the crowd if they wanted to see him fight Georges St-Pierre and was answered with a loud ovation. St-Pierre's victory led to the scheduling of B. In the ensuing three rounds, however, Penn turned out a lackluster performance. St-Pierre scored his first take-down of the night midway through the second round, and by the end of the round Penn was visibly tired.
At the start of round three, St-Pierre landed a " superman punch " that bloodied Penn's nose and shortly took Penn down again. From that point on, St-Pierre took Penn down almost at will, repeatedly passed Penn's renowned guard, and persistently punished the Hawaiian with a ground-and-pound attack.
After the fight, Penn failed to attend the post-fight press conference due to having stayed in the hospital. A controversy arose during the fight as St-Pierre's corner-men were spotted rubbing St-Pierre's back immediately after applying Vaseline to his face. Penn later sent a formal request to the NSAC, asking them to investigate.
Do I think Georges was trying to cheat? Absolutely not at all. But that corner man was rubbing grease on him. The procedures governing the transition from the fighters walk-in to the cage and while in the cage were also changed. Previously, fighters would walk up next to the cage, see the cut man who would apply Vaseline, be checked by the referee, and then have an opportunity to speak with or hug their coaches or cornermen before entering the cage.
To prevent an opportunity for the fighters to have Vaseline applied illicitly, fighters now must first part from any company, have Vaseline applied by the cut man, be checked by the referee, and then go directly to the cage. Finally, no cornermen will be allowed to have Vaseline in the cage between rounds.
In this way, the fighter's contact with Vaseline is fully controlled by the cut men and referee, who work independently of the UFC. Penn did, after all, quit after the fourth round.
In his first post-fight interview Penn spoke of his belief that if St-Pierre were found to have been "greased" he would lose all respect for him, while admitting that "[I] definitely got my butt kicked.
Penn requested more time off after his fight with GSP. On his feet, Penn avoided virtually any damage, constantly stuffing or evading any attempts of a left high kick, punches, or elbows from Florian when the two departed from the clinch. In a measured performance, Penn preferred to pace himself in his standup, occasionally showing explosive bursts of striking up until the fourth round, where he executed a powerful takedown and quickly assumed the half guard position, punishing the contender with elbows until gaining the full mount , where punches followed to continue the ground and pound assault from the BJJ specialist.
A scramble ensued, where Florian gave up his back twice but was unable to escape Penn's mount, the second time Penn took his opponent's back, he looked to trap Florian's arm with one of his legs, but was unable to do so, instead striking the liver of Florian with his heel, which eventually led Penn to secure a rear naked choke at of the fourth round to defend his lightweight championship title.
He stalked his opponent for large periods of the match and stunned Sanchez early, dropping him; following up with multiple clean shots, which Sanchez showed good durability in weathering.
Penn, showing good conditioning for the duration of the bout, continued to stuff all takedowns, punches and left high kicks from Sanchez and dominated with aggressive bursts of striking throughout.
He hurt Sanchez several times, until finally rocking him with a flurry in the final round, swarming to finish the combo with a right high kick. The kick opened up a huge cut on Sanchez's forehead above his left eye, causing the fight to be halted on doctor's advice at of the fifth round with a TKO. The victory marked only the second fight in UFC history to end in the fifth round, and also earned Penn the distinction of being the only man to have stopped Sanchez.
That right there, ladies and gentlemen, is the greatest lightweight, in the history of the sport! Despite being an overwhelming favorite coming into the fight, Penn lost the closely contested bout by unanimous decision; breaking his eight-year undefeated streak in the lightweight division.
Despite this, the results garnered much criticism as many disagreed with the judges decision after the five round fight, having believed that Penn had done enough to earn himself the victory. BJ is the greatest lightweight ever.
I can just hope to be half the champion he was. All three judges scored the fight 50—45 for Edgar. You're my idol -- Matt Hughes, you're my idol, you will always be my idol, thank you.
Penn, post fight at UFC The fight ended in a draw, snapping Fitch's five fight UFC win streak, and Penn stated that he would gladly have a rematch in the future. Penn relocated his camp to Southern California in an effort to prepare for the bout.
Penn lost via unanimous decision after winning the first round by crisp boxing as well as mixing in a takedown against the former Strikeforce Welterweight Champion , but was unable to mount any significant offense or defense against Diaz's stand-up attack in the remaining two rounds. Immediately following the loss to Diaz, Penn announced his plans to retire, saying into the microphone, "Joe, this was probably the last time you'll see me in here. I can't keep performing at the top level.
That's it Joe. I got a daughter and another daughter on the way, I don't want to go home looking like this. I'm done. He said, "I want to thank all the fans for their love and support.
I have decided to take some time off to enjoy life, train and teach.Once you get this technique down, practice throwing two left hooks in a row and then shooting in for the takedown. Instead of fighting for the single- leg takedown, I remove my right hand from behind Albert's leg and prepare to throw an over- hand. The sooner you discover what works best for you, the quicker you will rise toward the top of the MMA mountain.
Mixed Martial Arts: The Book of Knowledge by B. J. Penn, Erich Krauss (Paperback, 2007)
Usually I'll soften my opponent up with strikes, bloody him a little, and then gradually slip in a submission such as a rear naked choke. White saw me as a strict jiu—jitsu guy, not realizing I had been scrapping all of my life.
I would be al- lowed to continue with my life in Hilo for six months, but when those six months were up, I would make the move to California.
