Having spent the best part of a year out of the cage and with a record of four defeats in his last six outings inside it, legendary Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC fighter BJ Penn might have been forgiven for thinking about hanging up his fighting gloves for good and not even consider coming out of retirement for yet another come back.
But according to the former two division champion in the UFC, he came out of retirement simply because he wanted to have another go at Frankie Edgar, his arch nemesis for years.
He added while speaking in an interview that he believes he can do a lot better than he managed to do during the second fight between them and mentioned that when the opportunity to fight him again came up, he just couldn’t say ‘no’.
Edgar defeated BJ Penn at UFC 112 to take the UFC Lightweight Championship from him and in an immediate rematch between the pair at UFC 118; he defeated the Hawaiian once again.
While Penn hasn’t had a fight in over a year, Edgar has since lost his UFC Lightweight Championship, dropped down a weight category to Featherweight and lost his debut match in the division to reigning champion Jose Aldo before a blistering performance in a win against Charles Oliveira.
Penn is a fighter who has fought across several weight categories. Having held the Lightweight title, he also held the UFC Welterweight Championship and had fights in the Middleweight division as well as an open weight fight against Lyoto Machida.
But his upcoming match against Edgar will be his first as a Featherweight and BJ Penn, the man Dana White, the UFC president hailed as the one who made lightweights popular is leaving no stone unturned to make his divisional debut a memorable one.
