An easy BJ is a win for everyone

B.J. Penn says he’ll fight again if UFC ‘gives me a guy that I can beat’
Image
B.J. Penn isn’t committing to an MMA return — but on the other hand, he’s not officially retired, either.

The former UFC welterweight and lightweight champion was present at the UFC Hall of Fame red carpet event last week in Las Vegas, and it’s no surprise he was asked about the chance he steps foot into the Octagon again. Penn admitted that he isn’t sure himself whether or not he plans on fighting again — right now, “The Prodigy” has no plans, he said.

“I don’t know. You never know,” Penn told media at the event (via Severe MMA). “You never know what I’m going to do, but no plans, nothing scheduled.”

Penn (16-12-2) last fought at UFC Fight Night 112 in June 2017, losing to Dennis Siver by majority decision. The Hawaiian is on a five-fight skid and hasn’t won since a 2010 first-round knockout of Matt Hughes.

Penn, widely considered one of the best MMA fighters of all time, last reigned over a division in 2009, when he was the UFC lightweight champion.

As far as what it would take to get Penn back in the cage, it all comes down to who the UFC matchmakers find for him to face.

“Give me a guy that I can beat and I’ll come back,” Penn said.

Penn hasn’t trained much since his Siver loss, he said, but just recently got back into the gym.

“I wasn’t training for the whole time (after the fight), but I just started training the last month or two, because I get just so depressed when I’m out of the gym,” he said. “I gotta get in and work out.”

Day-to-day, Penn works at his taro farm in Hawaii and spends time with his family, which includes dropping his kids off at school and attending their soccer practices.

Whether or not preparing for a fight is added to his list of daily activities is still very much up in the air.


We so need a good BJ again, give him an easy one Dana. Just get him back in the cage man. :cig: :mrgreen:

Give him Holloway in Hawaii. It will get canceled at the last minute due to Holloway not fitting through the door of his house. Ortega will then decline the short-notice fight of course but him and BJ can then put on a 10-minute grappling exhibition event so BJ doesn't get too pooped yet can still show why he’s the prodigy.

I agree. How many more fights does Punk have left on his contract?

He had Siver dead to rights, on queer street I tell Ya! Problem is BJ only trained for a 2 round fight, that fight should have ended after Penn dropped Siver.

Image

Everyone thought the fight had ended myself included I even changed the channel. Later to everyone's surprise after the celebration was over Penn was forced to contiue the fight into round 3 kinda of like Silva was forced to fight Bisping after he KO'ed him with the flying knee, the fight was already over.

A 20% Penn still hit Siver harder than a 100% Conor, just FYI.

Look absolutely no comparison :lol:

So sad they let Gomi before we got a chance for that rematch.
Sign Shinya for a 3 round fight and do 1st round jits, 2nd round a DDR competition in the middle of the octagon and 3rd round strictly standup.
Think that'd be the most watched fight in ufc history.

After two rounds of Penn looking like a shadow of his former self. Siver forgot he was in a fistfight and got caught.
