There’s no debating B.J. Penn’s career credentials. He’s in the UFC Hall of Fame for a reason.
On Sunday, “The Prodigy” finally returns from retirement and will go after his first win in more than six years. Penn (16-10-2 MMA, 12-9-2 UFC) takes on rising featherweight standout Yair Rodriguez (8-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC) in the UFC Fight Night 103 main event.
UFC Fight Night 103 takes place Sunday at Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix. The main card airs on FS1 following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
