Late last week, BJ Penn appeared in a video on BJPENN.com that was subsequently taken down claiming that Kenny Florian had texted someone in Penn’s camp about GSP’s alleged greasing and steroid usage.
Well, Florian thinks that’s “ridiculous.” Speaking to Fighters Only Magazine, Florian responded to Penn’s latest accusations.
“Yeah it went from an email, to a text to a friend of the camp. I think next it will be a fax, and then it’ll probably be a bird that delivered a telegram to him from a roommate’s brother’s dog’s owner’s sister.”
“It’s kind of ridiculous. BJ is known as a trash talker and he plays a lot of mind games. He does a lot of psychological warfare.”
“People have tried that on me in the past, but what they don’t know is that they’re playing checkers and I’m playing chess.”
Oh snap! (That’s still cool to say, right?)
Nice response from the now professional ESPN co-host. I agree Kenny, this is getting ridiculous. In fact, one of our new contributors, Mark Dorsey, wrote a great story about how ridiculous it is earlier today.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I like a little “psychological warfare.” Actually, I’m very much looking forward to all the pre-fight trash talking between Frank Shamrock and Nick Diaz, but these are pretty serious accusations BJ is putting out there, and unless he can provide proof, it’s honestly crossing the line.
