BJ Penn Leaps Out Of A Pool

BJ Penn Leaps Out Of A PoolTotal Pro Sports – B.J. Penn has made a name for himself in the MMA world as a result of his incredible athleticism, as well as his whining at times.  After all, the nickname “the Prodigy” doesn’t get thrown around to just anyone.

Penn displayed some of that athleticism recently during a day at the pool.  With the three foot shallow end clearly marked, he squats down, takes a moment, then leaps right out of the pool.  It is a pretty incredible accomplishment, and one that not many can do.  In fact, a member of his crew states that he is only the third person in the world to do such a thing.  I believe Jarron Gilbert is another, as proven by this video evidence.

So what’s next for BJ?  A title defense against Kenny Florian at UFC 101.  But until then, we suggest he straps oin a pair of flip-flops and attempts to jump into the back of a pick-up truck, like Keith Eloi.  Maybe Penn should have considered jumping out of the octagon like that last time he was in there with Georges St. Pierre.
