MMAWeekly.com is out in Hawaii covering the big fight this Friday night between BJ Penn and Renzo Gracie. The press conference is going on in a few minutes from Hawaii and BJ Penn and Renzo Gracie talked briefly with MMAWeekly before the press conference.
BJ Penn is walking around at 191 pounds today and says “superior conditioning will win this fight and I have it for this fight.” BJ looked to be in good shape as he gets set for tomorrow’s weigh-in. MMAWeekly’s Ryan Bennett, who is doing the play by play for K-1 on Friday night said “BJ looks pretty solid to me. BJ isn’t going to win any body building contests because of his body structure put when I hit him on the shoulders today he was a rock. He looks ready to go and we will all find out Friday night.”
Renzo Gracie was with Ricardo Almeida and Matt Serra today and he is currently walking around at his weigh-in weight of 185. He told MMAWeekly “People will be surprised by the condition I am in. I will surprise a lot of people this weekend.” Ricardo Almedia told MMAWeekly “I’ve never seen Renzo in this kind of shape in years.
