    I think that BJ should have retired earlier and gone out with some dignity. I also thought that he was going to get beat up again. He just ran out of steam. He IS the pride of Hilo, but one just HAS to know when to call it quits, and not let your ego get the best of you! Our egos can work for us, but it can ALSO destroy us.

    Hey Wrestler ! As far as BJ giving up his dream… He made it to the top, that was his dream.
    Ending their career on a high note is what we wish all our favorite athletes could do. Unfortunately, for most “the mind is willing, but the body isn’t listening”. MMA is a young man sport. Josh was spot on seeing and reporting what we’ve seen over the last 3 fights.
    BJ’s headed to the HOF and we’re proud to claim him as our own. But the “facts” are his fighting career is over.

    Josh, glad to have a local perspective on the local athletes, sports and schools.
    Keep up the good work.
