The UFC's lightweight champ told the media gathered on today's UFC 101 teleconference that he's not working with several mixed martial arts websites in the future. Penn said he'll only be fulfilling his contracted obligations when it comes to dealing with media. Most of his contact with the public will come via BJPenn.com (2:10 mark).
"I didn't like how the media portrayed me after the GSP fight," Penn said that he felt he was misrepresented by MMAWeekly, MMAJunkie and Sherdog. "I'm done working with you guys."
This is the second big declaration to come out of UFC 94's "Grease-gate" fiasco. Penn said he'll never fight in Las Vegas, saying that Nevada State Athletic Commission Executive Director Keith Kizer didn't do his job in pushing through the investigation.
