New BJ Penn Book: Why I Fight

Find more videos like this on BJPENN.COM


From its humble beginnings twenty years ago, mixed martial arts has grown into a multi-billion dollar industry. Chief among the world′s leading mixed martial arts organizations is the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) which is making its way to the top of the sports food chain, dwarfing boxing and nipping at the heels of the NFL. And fighter-turned-author B.J. “The Prodigy” Penn has been one of the few chosen to lead the greatest fighting generation.

In WHY I FIGHT, the controversial Penn will, for the first time, bring MMA fans into his remote and insular world on the Big Island of Hawaii, where he lives and trains and give them an in-depth look into the complex mind of a man beloved by all peace-loving Hawaiians–who devastatingly imposes his physical will on opponents and then brazenly licks their blood off his gloves.

Penn will recap his journey from his days as a 17-year-old Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu prodigy, street fighter, and reckless party boy in Hilo, through his current status as a celebrity and world class competitor. Along the way he will discuss his controversial views on the UFC, his crazy yet heavily influential family life and how he came to embrace the Hawaiian Warrior spirit, and he will do so with the passion, wry sense of humor, and candor, that has made him one of the most loved, feared, and provocative athletes in the world.
