RVCA has released a web-documentary directed by Keegan Gibbs entitled 'A Portrait of B.J. Penn'. The video goes in-depth on the life and thoughts of the former two division champion as he gears up to face Rory MacDonald at UFC on Fox 5.

The 8-minute video was shot in Hilo, Hawaii, and it provides a very interesting look into the personal life of 'The Prodigy' where Penn opens up and shares stories about his childhood, his family, his goals, and his plans for the future.

He delved into a lot of interesting topics on his life, but here's a snippet on his thoughts about going back from a brief retirement to face MacDonald:

"Me being somebody who can't even believe I got this far or anything. With all that said, I still believe I haven't reached my full potential and that's why I'm back right now. That's why I'm here. One, I know I can't do this forever, and two, I know for a fact that I haven't fought my best fight yet."

"I don't know when it's going to happen. I don't know IF it's going to happen. I'm preparing my best to make that happen, but without a doubt I haven't reached my full potential yet and I honestly believe that."

I suggest watching the entire clip as it focuses interesting angles apart from his upcoming fight this weekend.
