Default BJ Penn Considering Retiring Before Being Offered Hughes Fight

Quote:
I was flying home, (and) I was kind of like, 'Maybe I don't want to do this anymore; I don't know what's wrong. If I'm going to go out there and perform like that, maybe this isn't something worth doing.' But when I got to Hawaii and jumped on a little island-hopper to go to my island, something told me, 'B.J., stick to your plan.' So I'm sticking to it.

I talked to Dana, and they tried to put me in the ring with [Kenny] Florian, (and) Dana said Florian was hurt. [Dana] said, 'What do you think about Hughes?' I said, 'Matt Hughes?' I got chicken skin all over my body. I said, 'Tell him I'm coming. Tell him, let's go.' ... I'm more respectful than that to lose two fights in a row and say, 'OK, give me Matt Hughes.' They offered me that fight. Matt was really excited about the fight. Dana called me and said, 'We offered Matt the fight. He's going to put everything on hold to take the fight if you want it.' And I said, 'I've got nothing else better to do. Let's do this.'
Why is it that everytime he loses a major fight, we hear that he's thinking about retirement?

Maybe he should reconsider unless he's willing to let Matt made the decision for him.

Sounds kinda like "suicide by cop" when the criminals don't wanna live but can't build the "courage" to off themselves. Perhaps BJ's hoping for "Retirement by Hughes".

I could see the headlines..."Penn Retires via Hughes's Farmaconda" There isn't even a smiley to show my reaction to this. You would need one that laughed so hard it peed itself.

my guess would be he's a very emotional person. very emotional people often make rash decisions and go back and forth like that.

I think that has always been the case. he makes big statements and irrational decisions.
