Quoteworthy:

"A motivated BJ Penn is somebody not to mess with, and you know what? I'm pretty motivated, I'm pretty damn motivated right now... Everybody wants to talk about how hard they train going into their fight, and I just want to tell you how hard I rested going into this fight."

Heading into UFC 118 one of the big questions, as with any other BJ Penn fight, is how motivated will BJ Penn be? There was talk after the first Edgar fight of just how little respect BJ gave his opponent and how he may have taken Frankie Edgar too lightly. Penn talked not about how hard he trained, but instead how hard he rested. Is BJ Penn really taking this fight as seriously as he should be, or will the joke be on BJ on Saturday night?
