This is world class stupid!
BJ Penn is one of the top stars in the UFC. He is promoting his new book.
Here, a Faux News Anchor, outweighing Penn by 40 pounds seriously tries and take Penn on – with predictable results. And Penn is being a good sport about this, and just holding the anchorman down before moving him into a decidedly gentile Kamora!
I wrestled at the collegiate level, so I have a pretty good appreciation of the skills levels, and techniques utilized by the UFC fighters in their “ground game”. Many of these guys come out of college level, and Olympic level wrestling – and enhance those skill sets with Greco-Roman style, jujitsu, and Brazilian style. And that doesn’t even get into the striking styles they use in the “stand up”. This is an incredibly dangerous sport, with world class athletes competing at the UFC level.
Ergo, this is like Joe the Plumber challenging Muhammad Ali to a boxing match in his heyday…
And this anchor is huffing and puffing to try and show Penn up?
