UFC Issues Statement On Sexual Assault Allegations Made Against BJ Penn

UFC has issued an official statement regarding sexual assault allegations made against UFC Hall Of Famer BJ Penn. UFC’s statement reads as follows:

“Following a review of the matter by Campbell & Williams, a Las Vegas-based law firm hired by UFC to evaluate the situation, UFC has been informed that no criminal or civil charges have been filed against Penn to date, nor has any action been taken by local law enforcement. It should be noted that UFC reserves the right to reevaluate the matter should new information be made available.”

It was also announced this week that Penn’s official Octagon return will take place at UFC 199, as he will meet Dennis Siver in a featherweight bout on June 4, 2016 at The Forum in Inglewood, California.
