BJ Penn did an interview from his pineapple at the bottom of the sea, and he had some pretty mean things to say about Sean Sherk:
“Sean Sherk can say it’s a fake interim title, but his belt is no more real that Marion Jones’ gold medals,” Penn told a gathering of the UFC Fight Club before Friday’s weigh-in for UFC 78 at the Prudential Center.
Jones is the U.S. sprinter and multiple Olympic medallist who recently admitted to using performance enhancing drugs.
“Looking at him, he doesn’t look like he’s ever done steroids in his life,” Penn, his tongue firmly lodged in his cheek, said of the musclebound Sherk.
Penn also ripped Sherk for failing to finish fights, noting he needed five rounds to beat Hermes Franca at UFC 73.
“He made us sit through that whole thing with Hermes Franca,” said Penn.
I’m glad someone is getting on Sherk’s case for being the lamest champion ever. I’ll have to email BJ with a list of the insults we’ve developed here at Fightlinker to help him out in future interviews. There’s just so many reasons to hate on Sean.
Of course, this builds things up nicely for an epic showdown between Penn and Sherk … no word yet on if Dana White is bleeding from the ears at BJ’s “Sherk is a fucking juiced up cheater” media tour.
