If victorious at UFC 118, refocused B.J. Penn wants all challengers, busier schedule
BOSTON – Although B.J. Penn could retire today and be remembered as one of the most accomplished and influential fighters in the history of mixed martial arts, the former champ thinks his career really is just beginning.
Penn headlines Saturday’s UFC 118 event at Boston’s TD Garden and looks to reclaim his title from Frankie Edgar, who upset “the Prodigy” in April to win the belt.
And though he won’t delude himself into thinking the loss was a godsend, Penn does think it’s made him a better and more-focused fighter.
