BJ Penn is a prominent figure in UFC history and is recognized as one of the sport’s greatest combatants. But beyond his accolades in the Octagon, Penn’s legacy has been partly overshadowed by his unconventional and sometimes baffling posts on social media platforms.
Recently, BJ Penn posted a perplexing rant on Instagram. He touched on various subjects, such as the legitimacy of evolution, the existence of aliens, and even the authenticity of dinosaurs.
Instead of a coherent narrative, Penn’s thoughts spiral into a web of skepticism, questioning historical events and scientific concepts. His assertions range from challenging the authenticity of historical accounts regarding America’s westward expansion to questioning the validity of evolution theories, alien existence, and the portrayal of Hawaii’s native history.
His post read:
“#America ended the war when they bought Alaska and Oregon from Russia that is now America won the west !! But these guys lie the whole f*ckin time !!! Same with us Hawaiians! Just the same as f*ckin fake as Dinosaurs, Neanderthal man, and aliens are!!! Evolution is even worse because those evolutionist liars need the native Hawaiians to make their fake evolution for humans.”
Furthermore, he alleged that evolutionists manipulate the history of native Hawaiians to fit their narratives.
He continued: “F*ckin liars. We living in a movie Leomana. It’s almost pau ! They invented the word native for evolution!! Sick people. I wasn’t there. When George Washington was fighting England and writing the constitution they wanna like we was throwing rocks ! We are living in a movie ! It’s speeding up now real fast Cause it ends at 2050 then resets back to 1850 !”
Penn also expresses disillusionment with the current state of news, condemning it as speculative and controlled by government misinformation. He also talked about hidden islands and uncharted continents, proposing that world maps might omit additional landmasses.
“I wish we had real news ! We don’t know sh*t !!!! All guessing! Extraterrestrials are real! Everything the government tells us is a lie.“
“Gotta have at least hidden island like Hawaii and maybe even continents that we can’t go to. I think the other continents we don’t see on the elementary world maps gotta have extra land. There is no law that says they can’t lol”
In the MMA community, discussions about BJ Penn’s career trajectory and potential health implications have emerged. Popular welterweight contender Stephen Thompson hinted at concerns regarding Penn’s decision to continue competing despite diminishing performances.
Thompson suggested that Penn’s prolonged career and subsequent losses impacted his legendary status. He highlighted the risks combatants face, including potential long-term consequences like CTE stemming from continued exposure to head trauma.
In an interview with The MMA Hour, Penn said: “B.J. Penn was one of them. He was at the pinnacle. Every fight that he took after that that he lost, it made him lesser of a legend, I think. If he would have stopped at the top when he first did, he didn’t have to come back. … The way they go out there, [like Fedor Emelianenko] he’s getting knocked out left and right, you know what that does to people later on.”
“That’s permanent damage right there. It might be slowly bits at a time, but I don’t like to see people take that kind of punishment and then be able to see that later on even after their career how it has affected them.”
