BJ Penn Won't Be Surprised By Anything Matt Hughes Has To Offer


BJ Penn and Matt Hughes will settle their trilogy at UFC 123 and Penn, who holds the first win over Hughes in the set gives his thoughts on the former welterweight champ as the fight draws close:

“I kind of just feel like I want to train, keep improving, keep adjusting. You know I tried some stuff in the Frankie Edgar fight. I didn't defend the takedowns as hard as I wanted to because I wanted to try a couple sweeps but I didn't have the condition(ing). It's always a wake-up call when you lose because you know you're going to alter something in your training, you know, something has to change in the training. I'm going to train pretty traditional. I'm going to do a lot of striking, a lot of grappling, I'm going to run hard and I'm going to do everything I need to do. I think Matt's looked good in his last three fights. … Anything Matt Hughes does, doesn't surprise me.”
