UFC President Dana White said it best, BJ Penn has nothing else to prove in Mixed Martial Arts.
“B.J. Penn was our jiu-jitsu coach before we even bought the UFC, so I’ve known this guy forever. He’s one of two people who have won two titles in two different weight classes. He built the 155-pound division. He’s a legend, he helped build the UFC, and the list goes on and on of what B.J. Penn has done. I’ve said this a million times. He’s got a beautiful wife. He’s got beautiful kids. He’s got a great family. He owns a UFC-B.J. Penn Gym in Hawaii. What more do you want, B.J.? You have nothing left to prove. Fighting is a young man’s sport.”
