The UFC Fight Night between Rodríguez vs. Penn is the UFC MMA event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship being held on January 15, 2017 at Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona.
BJ Penn has only made the weight cut down to featherweight on two occasions but it certainly appears that the second trip went much smoother than the first.
The UFC Hall of Famer hit the scales on Saturday morning in Phoenix as he prepares to compete for the first time in more than two years after coming out of retirement.
Penn has only fought at featherweight one time previously when he suffered a TKO loss to Frankie Edgar in 2014, which led to his retirement from the sport.
This highly entertaining sport is divided into seven weight divisions (heavyweight, light heavyweight, middleweight, welterweight, lightweight, featherweight, and bantamweight). Furthermore, the UFC regulates this sport under the Unified Rules of Mixed Martial Arts.
