    Man … when a professional fighter has beat the sh!t out of someone in a parking lot, you gotta hope said someone slept with his wife, kicked his dog, trashed his car or did all the above.

    Sorry man, all kidding aside, but when you’re among the elite fighters, you only use your fists under extreme duress (drunk or not). Barroom brawling over petty disagreements is for small minded, insecure little egos. Champions don’t beat the crap out of the dude next door. That’s like kicking a toddler.

    I hope there’s a lot more to this tale than what the surface portrays. If not, Penn should reconsider ever taking a sip of alcohol again because he sure as sh!t can’t handle his liquor.
