It’s seems like it was just yesterday that our hearts were broken from having had to watch the once-great BJ Penn get creamed by talented up-and-comer Yair Rodriguez. And believe me, seeing the beloved Hawaiian step into the cage, perform like a shadow of his old self, become a walking punching bag, and lose hurt – it hurt a lot (probably not as much as it hurt Penn, but still…).
And now the UFC has announced that Penn is fighting again, this time against Dennis Siver. Ugh. Why? Why must you do this, BJ? Can’t you go to Bellator, where they’ll match you up against someone like Ken Shamrock or Dada 5000? That’s seems the safer route to a paycheck.
