B.J. Penn is angry. You won't like B.J. Penn when he's angry.
Maybe you will, actually, considering a motivated "Prodigy" typically leads to stunning acts of violence inside the Ultimate Fighting Championship's (UFC) Octagon perpetrated against his unfortunate opponent.

"Ares" wants to get out and prove to the world that he's one of the best fighters on Earth who competes at 170-pounds. If he can knock off the seemingly reinvigorated Hawaiian, a lot of fight fans will start believing him but the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington, at UFC on Fox 5: "Henderson vs. Diaz" could be the site of the reincarnation of a pound-for-pound great.
