UFC 152: B.J. Penn Would Like To Train At AKA, Jon Fitch Not Happy

B.J. Penn released his first UFC 152 video blog over the weekend, and he wasted no time giving someone a verbal lashing. You'd think it might be his opponent Rory MacDonald, who had some critical things to say about BJ at a press conference last week. But Rory wasn't the subject of Penn's ire this time around. Instead he went after former opponent Jon Fitch, who apparently has a problem with Penn training at American Kickboxing Academy. Here's what he had to say:

"We’re over here in Honolulu right now, training. We’re gonna be here for a month, and then we’re gonna see where we’re gonna train next month. We’re trying to get up to AKA, but Fitch is trying to give me some problems about that. And all Jon Fitch has to do is look on the wall [at AKA]. Whose picture is on the wall holding the belt? That’s all Jon Fitch has to know."

Penn worked at AKA with Dave Camarillo and Bob Cook when he first came over to San Jose back in the mid-90's. Fitch, who went to a draw with Baby Jay back at UFC 127, hasn't responded to Penn's comments yet but I have a feeling he will at some point. You can check out the whole video blog after the jump. In other news, I dig Penn's RVCA shirt in the blog.
