      BJ PENN IS HAWAII'S NEXT GREATEST CHAMPION OF MIXED MARTIAL ARTS!

      'HILO BOY' BJ PENN FIGHTS FOR UFC LIGHTWEIGHT TITLE!!!

      B.J. Penn ready to make his statement!

      B.J. Penn was born in the town of Wainaku in Hilo, on the Big Island
      of Hawaii some 23 years ago. He is the second youngest in a family of
      five. BJ grew up in the Islands with a big dose of confidence and
      determination, because in Hawaii, growing up is sometimes a game of
      survival.

      Now, after an unprecedented Black Belt World Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
      Title (first for an non-Brazilian) in 2000, followed by a meteoric
      rise to the top ranking of the U.F.C. lightweight division. After a
      victory over Joey Gilbert, a knock out over #3 ranked Din Thomas and
      a lightning fast knock out over #1 rated Caol Uno, the kid known
      as "BJ" is ready to make his statement in the Title Match in U.F.C.
      35.
