BJ Penn: 'You cant confuse steroids with heart,' Sean Sherk

UFC 85 Bj Penn vs Sean Sherk



"... I know there are a lot of people out there doing steroids, cheating and every time I run into one of them, I'm going to call them on it and then I'm going to beat the shit out of them.… It's going to be a historic night because all the kids out there will realize that you can do it with just hard work alone … he wants to say he has heart and all this different shit, but you can't confuse steroids with heart.... It's two different things, a guy with heart is a guy doing it with blood, sweat and tears, waking up with the sore back, the sore body.… What would happen in the old days when you get caught with a couple of aces up your sleeve, they kill the guy right there and that's why I say Sean Sherk is dead…."

A fired up UFC Lightweight Champion, BJ Penn, talks about his upcoming title defense against Sean Sherk at UFC 84: "Ill Will" at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 24. "The Muscle Shark" tested positive for steroids after his win against Hermes Franca at UFC 73: "Stacked" in July 2007 and has not competed since because of a six-month suspension. Penn doesn't like steroids or steroid users very much ... this one is personal.
