BJ Penn: I Definitely Believe I’ll Be Fighting at 155-Pounds Again

BJ PennDespite fighting for a welterweight title shot when he meets Jon Fitch in the main event of UFC 127 on Feb. 26, former champion BJ Penn plans to eventually return to the lightweight division, which he left after losing the 155-pound title with back-to-back losses to Frankie Edgar last year:

“I just wanted to address something real quick. Yesterday [on the conference call] one of the reporters asked me if I was done fighting at 155 pounds and I said, ‘Dana wouldn’t let that happen’. I definitely believe that I’ll be fighting at 155 pounds again,” Penn wrote on his official website. “So maybe I was a little miss quoted or maybe the quote came out wrong. But that’s not really important, what’s important is taking on Jon Fitch in Australia. He’s been the man for a long time at welterweight and that’s it, that’s the plan.”
