When the Sherk/Penn fight was originally booked, a lot of us were curious to see if BJ Penn was going to be ‘allowed’ by UFC brass to rip Sean Sherk a ragged red asshole over his steroid suspension. After all, the company did it’s best to gloss over the ugly affair. Fortunately for everyone, BJ Penn does whatever the fuck he wants, and during the UFC 84 conference call he wanted to heckle the shit out of Sherk:
UFC lightweight champion BJ Penn had some questions of his own for former UFC lightweight champion Sean Sherk at the UFC 84 Press conference.
“Sean Sherk did you take any steroids for this fight? …what about growth hormone? ..what about blood doping? …let me know, let me know,” Penn said.
Sherk did his best to blow Penn off, but Penn refused to let it go, interrupting Sherk repeatedly.
“I really don’t feel any extra pressure,” Sherk said before Penn interrupted him, “What about the pressure that you’re not going to be on the juice this time? Do you feel that pressure or what.”
For those of you who want to re-live that awkwardly awesome moment, the link above includes audio of that and some more bonus smack talk too.
