    Default Maxwell quits on BJ

    Friend of mine who trains there said Steve Maxwell told everyone to "bet on Florian."

    BJ flew him out 2 weeks ago to be his strength and conditioning coach for the Florian fight and Steve said BJ isn't training hard and all and he didn't want to be associated with a lackluster effort.

    My friend said Steve said BJ's spoiled by his rich family and how he always has tons of younger family members over and he's fooling around and stuff. The days are pretty wasteful.

    I think Adolf made a comment before the GSP fight that Penn wasn't training hard. He has time to turn this around, but when you fly someone over from the other side of the world, you expect that person to work hard right away.

    It seemed like BJ was doing better but it sounds like GSP's thorough thrashing of the Cryin' Hawaiian has done a number on his head.
    I heart Jazzy B. White.

    I got my k-bell cert from Maxwell in Phillly.. He is 55 and a freakin' beast and doesn't mess around. 2 straight days of k-bell instruction and w/outs and he was the only one who wasn't a puddle at the end of it. BTW, he is a black belt in BJJ.

    yeah, he's real good at BJJ and many of the other BJJ places in philly were started by long time students of him. He's been doing it for a long time and I think he's also a very good wrestler.

    Ridiculous to fly someone to Hawaii and then f around, I guess the drive we thought BJ had for the Stevenson and Sherk fights is now gone. I mean, how can you not train hard for GSP (according to Adolf) when you were the one that asked for that fight as it would impact your place in UFC history?

    Claudale did you really hear this from a friend or did you read an article?

    BJ has never had a track record of working hard so i cant expect him to suddenly just turn it on. I have florian winning this fight since i cant see penn getting up for this fight. Florian will have a smart strategy and the ability to execute that strategy he will stay out of penns range using lots of leg kicks. I think he will win this similar to forrest vs. rampage.

    LOL

    Maxwell's place a block from my work and its right across from the street from the restaurant I went with when I first met Pete.

    BJ convinced me he was working hard a few fights ago when he was talking about his place in history and saying his abs were visible for the first time.

    Wonder why he will even defend this belt if he can't take training seriously (just the way I wonder why he challenged GSP without training hard)

    Thank you for that information Claudale. I've been considering wagering on Penn but this new info changes everything. If Adolf said it, I am inclined to believe that it's rock solid true.

    You ever train at Maxercise? It is a pretty nice place.
