"BJ Penn is moving down to 145 pounds to coach The Ultimate Fighter against Frankie Edgar. BJ really hates the fact that he lost to Frankie Edgar. It's something that's been burning deep inside of him for three years now. So he's moving down to 145 pounds to not only avenge those defeats, but to try and become the first fighter in UFC history to win titles in three different weight classes."
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White getting a little ahead of himself on last night's edition of UFC Tonight, following the surprise announcement (see it here) that former welterweight and lightweight champion, B.J. Penn (16-9-2), would be making his Octagon return -- as a featherweight -- against former 155-pound nemesis Frankie Edgar. "The Answer" beat "The Prodigy" for the division strap back at UFC 112, then retained in their UFC 118 rematch later that year. So what, besides the weight class, will be different the third time out? Too soon to tell, but if the 34-year-old Penn, just 1-4-1 over his last six fights, wants to wear gold at 145 pounds, he will first have to defeat Edgar (16-4-1), then move on to face reigning division kingpin Jose Aldo (23-1). Not sure I like his chances. How about you?
