After watching the last couple episodes of TUF, from what I've seen BJ is just barely a step above Ken Shamrock in the coaching department.
His team has been falling apart, and he doesn't seem to really care about any of his fighters. Correction. If you make BJ look good, he likes you imo.
Props going out to Jens Pulver, who has a great coaches attitude.
BJ Penn gets all this credit as a great fighter. He lost to GSP. Lost to Hughes. Lost to Pulver. He has a highlight reel over Caol Uno. Who else? I think he may be a great fighter but when is he going to quit wasting our time and starting bringing something to the table? He hasn't showed up at 100% in years.
I don't respect BJ as a fighter and as a coach I respect him less and less.
