BJ Penn’s return to the Octagon has been pushed back yet again, as according to a report from MMA, the legend has sustained an injury and will no longer fight at UFC FN 97.

Penn was scheduled to fight featherweight contender Ricardo Lamas at the October 15th card, which will go down at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay, Manila, Philippines. The UFC hasn’t made any announcement regarding Penn’s injury, and it remains to be seen if Lamas will still fight.

The 37 year-old Penn, who was last scheduled in June to make his return, hasn’t fought now since 2014. In the decorated fighter’s last bout, Penn was stopped by Frankie Edgar.
