UFC Hall of Famer B.J. Penn hospitalized after flipping car, investigated for possible DUI
really hope he's OK
Better drunk drivers kill themselves than my grandkids.
Wasn't his fault. Someone greased the wheel.
Jesus greased the wheeeeel
All his aggressive and reckless behaviours fromPenn the last few years... Seems characteristic of someone that has suffered some brain damage.
Really really fucking hate to hear this shit...
B.J. was one of my most beloved fighters in his day. It’s horrible to see what he’s become.
Glad he didn’t hurt anyone else and hope he recovers. He needs help.
Honestly looks to me like a text book downward spiral of an alcoholic
domestic violence, fighting at a bar, now a DUI most likely
I didn’t get in trouble every time I drank, but every time I got in trouble I was drunk. 180 days of not drinking tomorrow, for me!
yeah i pop into the recovery thread sometimes. I'm way happy for you my friend
Initial report mentions speed being a factor. Guess he couldn't handle the vehicle's riddum.
At least he didn't gas out this time.
it was the GSP, I mean the GPS.
BJs narrow shoulders make it difficult to adjust on the roadways. It's a situation where the fast twitch muscles work against you causing you to fatigue and later overcompensate.
If he only had a better camp.. of vehicles.
I would mix in his personality too.
Alcoholism and heavy cocaine use, and who knows what else. I imagine being in BJs shoes with his career and for him to have been at the pinnacle like he was and then lost, and lost over and over again... it’s like being high on really good cocaine, and I mean really damn high, with seemingly plenty left on the tray, but then someone or something knocked it all off into the shag rug. Except in this case, you can never get your hands on more ever again.
That’s a rough dragon to chase.
It’s something that isn’t ever really talked about with the legends and mega stars. Having to come down. Not many people can handle that let alone be fortunate to walk away with a completely sound mind. Has anyone ever had a better ending than GSP? GSP is a very blessed soul in this regard.
, vintage Ninja! I'm DEAD, .
I tried to force a laugh out...but I was cringeing a bit to hard at the genuine terribleness.
Doesnt look like BJ 'flipped his car' to me?
That makes it even worse he was knocked out and the car was barely damaged.
Over/under on BJ making it to the age of 50.
Looks a lot more like he curbed his front driver side tire and went into a ditch.
