BJ Penn took to his website Wednesday, posting a video (included below) to update his subscribers on when his next fight will be. The UFC lightweight champion stated that he has a tentative date set for UFC 112 which will take place on April 10 in Abu Dhabi, UAE. He mentioned that the bout was not yet signed, and made no mention of a prospective opponent. So far the only bout rumored for the yet unannounced card is a welterweight match up pitting Renzo Gracie against Matt Hughes.
Penn was last in action on December 12, defeating Diego Sanchez via fourth round TKO defending his lightweight belt. That fight was Penn’s second straight victory, since losing to Georges St. Pierre last January in a welterweight title fight.
