BJ Penn “Warming up to the idea” of Making a Return to Mixed Martial Arts

Former two-division UFC champion, BJ Penn has revealed that after having “no interest in fighting” he’s finally “warming to the idea” of returning to the octagon after a absence from the sport.

Penn, speaking via UFC Tonight, said:

“I mean, right after my last fight I had no interest in fighting, but I am kind of warming up to the idea. Everywhere I go people are telling me to get back into the ring and I think it is working a little. No timetable, it isn’t going to be anytime in the next few months, that’s for sure.”

“The thing about the UFC is that the landscape is constantly changing. I guess whatever makes sense. I don’t want any freebie fights. I would like to put together a fight that makes sense for everyone; for the fighters, the fans and the organization – a big fight.”
