BJ Penn, the legendary Hawaiian scrapper who made his mark on the sport as one the greats many years back, is returning to action after retiring at UFC Fight Night 103.
Supposedly. SUPPOSEDLY. Because Penn has been teasing a comeback for a while, but has had to postpone it for everything from legal troubles to injuries to USADA violations, so who knows if something gets in the way before this fight against Yair Rodriguez can happen.
Anyway, Penn was a shadow of his old self when he last fight, but that doesn’t change the fact that the man is a freakin’ Hall of Famer. In fact, here’s Penn giving his Hall of Fame speech.
