Former UFC champion BJ Penn basically announced his retirement following his last outing, a TKO loss to Frankie Edgar at The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale in July 2014. Well, it seems like the Hawaiian is looking to make a comeback and he has a name on his mind.
BJ Penn teases comeback; calls out Nik Lentz
@niklentz this is a formal challenge for Nik Lentz to meet me in the octagon March 5th in Las Vegas. Nik you wrote a silly poem about me making fun of me, you said stuff about me and my parents, and you been making a #bringpennback hashtag, I ask you today to be a man and back up everything you said, talk the talk walk the walk , uncle BJ is mad already #youout #bringpennback #hiloboys #hawaii #allhawaii
This callout comes just one day after Penn met with Greg Jackson and sent out this teaser photo on his Instagram as well.
Penn (16-10-2) last won a fight in 2010 when he finished Matt Hughes at UFC 123. He has since gone 0-3-1 over the last five years.
