Former UFC lightweight and welterweight champ BJ Penn is likely nearing the very end of his career as a fighter, but he’s still got some fight left in him, which has manifested itself as a coaching stint opposite Frankie Edgar on the upcoming season of TUF, as well as another Edgar rematch. So the Hawaiian legend is in Brazil training with Nova Uniao – home of Jose Aldo and Renan Barao, and the school where the bulk of Penn’s jiu-jitsu lineage comes from. However, Penn isn’t cut off from the world down there, and cognizant of Anderson Silva‘s plight, he made a video for the former middleweight champ. The purpose: to send Silva some love.
