Jason Parillo says he's not the one to blame for "The Prodigy's" revamped stance and fight strategy against Frankie Edgar. After B.J.

LAS VEGAS – When asked to describe his best moment, B.J. Penn was thinking the reporter meant specifically of Sunday night -- a night he had nothing to offer the quicker, younger, better prepared Frankie Edgar. "Walking out probably," he said. Everybody laughed. That was the moment of levity in a time of brutal, inevitable truth. Penn, one of the UFC’s more recognizable figures, who carried titles in two different weight classes and an appetite to fight in any that would house him, retired from more

And it's all thanks to the "cheapskates" who don't but the events, according to "The California Kid." If you thought Urijah Faber was upset that he was relegated to the prelims and denied a spot on the main card of this weekend's (Sat., July 5, 2014) UFC 175 pay-per-view (PPV) event, you're sadly mistaken.
In fact, "The California Kid" asked to headline the preliminary card -- which airs on FOX Sports 1 -- opposite Alex Caceres.
Because more people will tune in to watch his free fight as op more
