BJ Penn miss quoted: “I definitely believe that I’ll be fighting at 155lbs again”

Former UFC lightweight champion, BJ Penn has been speaking about his comments made yesterday at the conference call about his future being over at 155 pounds ahead of his return to the welterweight division, explaining he definitely has a future in both divisions.

Penn, speaking via BJPenn.com, said:

“I just wanted to address something real quick. Yesterday [on the conference call] one of the reporters asked me if I was done fighting at 155 pounds and I said, ‘Dana wouldn’t let that happen’. I definitely believe that I’ll be fighting at 155 pounds again. So maybe I was a little miss quoted or maybe the quote came out wrong. But that’s not really important, what’s important is taking on Jon Fitch in Australia. He’s been the man for a long time at welterweight and that’s it, that’s the plan.”
