BJ Penn Comments on Loss to Ryan Hall, Uncertain About Fighting Future

Following BJ Penn’s painful looking loss to Ryan Hall at UFC 232 last month, the legend’s fighting future remains unclear.

The former lightweight and welterweight champ faced the vaunted submission artists on December 29th, and Penn was forced to tap-out to a first round, heel hook.

Recently the-40-year-old spoke with his own site, BJ Penn.com, and here’s some of what he had to say about the loss and his future.

“You know I felt like I had one of the greatest training camps in my life for this fight. Training in Brazil at Nova Uniao was nothing short of amazing. I can’t thank Leo Santos and coach Andre Pederneiras enough for their efforts. We had practiced everything, including leg locks, and I felt great. It just didn’t work out this time around.”

“…I just got back home to Hawaii. I’m going to let my ankle heal up and then I will contemplate what is next for my life.”

The big question here is whether the UFC would give Penn another fight, if he indeed, decides to fight again. The legend has lost six in a row, and UFC President Dana White has called on Penn to retire.
