Fuck the high road.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) veteran Nik Lentz, who was probably just as baffled as the rest of the mixed martial arts (MMA) community when retired ex-champ BJ Penn called him out (watch it), is more than happy to welcome the "Prodigy" back to the Octagon.
And in case the Hawaiian was having second thoughts, "The Carny" upped the ante on Instagram.
I don't even and have not worked with (Mike) Dolce for quite some time...so fighting with me will have nothing to do with Dolce...but for the record...fuck you BJ. You talk too much now...you use to be about actions, but now like the spoiled little rich kid you are, all you do is talk. I'll gladly fight you anytime. So get your mom and daddy to paint you some plans, fly Hawaii out to Vegas, give little baby Penn what he wants and come out of retirement .... This time I'll make sure to retire you properly #BringPennBack
Lentz (25-7-2, 1 NC) is coming off a submission loss to Charles Oliveira last May, but won't be available for a new booking until after he finishes his business with Danny Castillo -- as a lightweight -- at the upcoming UFC on FOX 17 event in December (more on that fight here).
Penn (16-10-2) called it a career after getting trounced by Frankie Edgar in July 2014, but may be at the point of no return after this molehill quickly became a mixed martial arts (MMA) mountain. And to think, all this over some chicken breast and leafy greens!
