Default Dana White Says BJ Penn Will Fight Again

From MMAFighting.com:

Quote:
Apr 22, 2012 - ATLANTA -- Will B.J. Penn fight again or not?

That seems to be a question right now with no clear answer. But UFC president Dana White recently had a chance to speak with the Hawaiian great at the recent UFC on FX card in Sweden, and the pair addressed his future. According to him, Penn's career as an active fighter isn't over.
"I heard some s--- that he said he was going to retire and all this stuff," White said. "He was like, 'Nah, I'm going to fight again.'"

The 33-year-old hasn't fought since last October, when he dropped a decision to Nick Diaz in the UFC 137 main event. He's won only once in his last five fights, and after the defeat to Diaz, he said it would probably be his last time in the octagon, stating, "I'm done."

Shortly after, he said he'd take some time to consider his options, and more recently, he said he had no plans to fight, but acknowledged he had not made a final decision. According to White, he's likely to come back at least one more time.

Penn, a former UFC lightweight and welterweight champ, is 16-8-2 overall in a career that dates back 11 years to UFC 31 in May 2001.

He isn't going anywhere in either LW or for sure WW, and probably not far in FW. He should just let it be done.

He should not have to worry about going anywhere in any weight class. BJ has done enough in his career already. He should take a page out of Matt's book and only take fights that interest him until he is ready to retire.

That would be bad@ss pretty similar to The Nick Diaz fight but not so one sided. With the same outcome of course.

Nate is a Beast!!

BJ vs Nate would be a bad fight for BJ. Putting his skill set aside, Nate is to tall and has to great of a reach. BJ would have a very hard time with Nate.
Nate wins, just like Nick did!
