Firas Zahabi Has No Ill Will for B.J. Penn, Believes Feeling Is Mutual

By Staff Jan 30, 2013

Trainer Firas Zahabi, on “Rewind,” discussing his relationship with B.J. Penn ahead of Penn’s UFC on Fox 5 bout against Rory MacDonald:

“He wants to score one over Tri-Star. I mean, if that’s what motivates him to fight, let him use that, but we have no ill will towards him. I don’t believe he has any ill will towards us. I think it’s just what motivates him. Me and him are good now together. We’ve talked several times. We buried the hatchet, and this is just going to be a sporting event for us. It’s just going to be man versus man, a fight like every other. Everybody’s got to find their motivation. If that’s his motivation, he should use it.”
