B.J. Penn Considering Returning To The Octagon At The 155 Pound Weight Division

Former two-division UFC champion, B.J. Penn is apparently considering getting back in on the action that takes place inside the octagon, despite having a disappointing run of results over the past few years and people urging him to retire, he says if he was to go back, it would be at the 155 pound weight class.

Ariel Helwani, speaking during last night’s UFC Tonight show said:

“The door is still open for BJ Penn to return to MMA in the future. He’s actually training right now and has to check in with his body and mind in the next few months. If he does come back, it will be at 155 pounds.”

“B.J. is too tough for his own good. B.J. might not get knocked out, but the shots that B.J. took would have knocked out a normal human being. He’s had his head bounced off the canvas like a basketball by Matt Hughes, Georges St. Pierre and Rory MacDonald just did it to him. B.J. Penn has left that Octagon looking like a fucking alien. He’s too tough for his own good. You don’t knockout B.J. Penn — he absorbs every amount of punishment you give him. It doesn’t mean he hasn’t taken any damage … he’s taken a lot of damage. And I don’t want to see him take any more.”
