He’s already a UFC Hall of Famer … but B.J. Penn could have been EVEN BETTER … so says Dana White, who tells us the guy had the talent be one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time.
We spotted White in NYC — and asked if there was a fighter who had insane raw talent … but didn’t have the drive to reach their full potential.
“B.J. Penn,” White said … “B.J. Penn probably should have been one of the best ever … to ever live … to ever do it. B.J. was so talented.”
“I think B.J. in his own words would go back and do things differently if he could.”
B.J. was 28-10-2 in his MMA career — but couldn’t figure out a way to beat guys like Frankie Edgar (lost 3 times) and Georges St-Pierre (lost twice).
Still, Dana admits … the guy was “awesome.”
