Supposedly – SUPPOSEDLY – legendary fighter BJ Penn will be headlining a UFC in a couple weeks. UFC Fight Night 103 is the event, and Penn is slated to face Yair Rodriguez.
When last we saw Penn, he was getting clobbered by Frankie Edgar in the saddest, realest example of a fighter competing long past his prime. Penn was supposed to hang up the gloves forever then, but he’s been teasing a comeback (and, for one reason or another, not having that comeback fight) for a while now.
We’ll see if the Rodriguez fight actually does happen.
In the meantime, here’s an oldie but a goody of Penn in action.
