BJ Penn and Matt Hughes are two guys most of us never ever thought would succumb to the old infamous request: ‘can’t we all just get along?’. After all the hate between these two over the years, it just never seemed very likely these two guys would one day train with each other and even become what appears to now be very close friends. Maybe the kiss BJ lovingly placed upon Matt’s lips way back at UFC 46 was the catalyst for this eventual but unlikely friendship.
They say you kill hate with kindness so it could be that’s just what has happened here. Or, maybe after fighting each other multiple times, a mutual respect was born that has slowly blossomed into this new beautiful friendship. Whatever has happened, this picture sums up the Genki Sudo mantra– ‘We are all one.’ Feast your eyes upon the twosome that our own D-Zilla has deemed the UFC ‘Super Best Friends’ enjoying a sunny day together with a lovely ride on Matt Hughes’ motorcycle. Ah, zen.
