BJ Penn is preparing for UFC 127 by sticking needles in his forehead and lighting them on fire

BJ Penn is preparing for UFC 127 by sticking needles in his forehead and lighting them on fire

It took me a few times to actually understand what BJ Penn was talking about in his ‘origin of humanity’ video we published a while back. Essentially, he says that in order to grow taro root you need to rip a piece off and plant it in the ground. Penn then says that taro root originated in Mesopotamia and that whenever we eat taro root, we’re just eating a piece of the original taro root thousands of years ago. Still, that creation story doesn’t explain why BJ Penn has needles jammed in his forehead prior to his UFC 127 bout with Jon Fitch. Lighting those same needles on fire just adds another dimension of WTFness to this clip. [Source]
