Guess which Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) star is getting his own signature gym?
Turns out longtime mixed martial arts (MMA) veteran and UFC champion across two different weight classes, B.J. Penn, is getting a 37,000 square foot UFC gym with his name on it located in the Kaka’ako community of Honolulu, Hawaii.
As "The Prodigy" explains in a recent press release, it's "the future of fitness."
"I’ve always dreamed of putting my name on a gym in my homeland of Hawaii and I’m so grateful that I finally have the opportunity to do so with my partners at UFC GYM," said Penn, a native of Hilo. "My new signature gym is not a traditional health club or just a fight club, but it offers all the tools you and your family needs to get results. UFC GYM BJ Penn is truly the future of fitness!"
The B.J. Penn Gym motto is "train different."
Penn, who recently turned down a comeback fight against Josh Koscheck, is currently enjoying a self-imposed retirement, but can at least keep himself in fighting shape with his own signature gym nearby.
Alright fight fans, the (gym) floor is yours.
