Penn still up in the air on return to Octagon


At 34 years old, BJ Penn may still have some good fighting years left despite retiring after his recent fight. Penn hasn't made a confirm committment either way, and spoke to Fuel TV about a potential return:

"I'm still just hanging out, honestly. At this moment, my guess is probably a little better than yours, but I don't know. I'm enjoying what I'm doing. I am training. I'm starting to train a bit more, for my health a lot. I'm a fighter, I'm a fighter deep inside. If I felt it, if it ever comes back -- not saying that it's gone -- I don't know.

You know how being a fighter is, your mind changes from time-to-time. Of course I'm looking, Anderson (Silva) he's 39 and he's in there fighting, I'm like 'I'm 34, why can't I fight again?' It's gotta be right. There's no sense in me going back into the Octagon and getting beat up in front of everybody, that just doesn't make any sense."

Let's do this BJ, one more round! But as a 155er. MMA today is a bit different and competing against fighters Rory and others is just not "fair" competition.

Please don't. I cant handle seeing one of my favorites getting pounded again. That last fight ripped my heart out.

If he doesnt know if.he wants it.i'd suggest he probably doesnt. Guys a legend but he's hardly the most self motivated fighter of all time.

If he's still flip flopping on it, then he just doesn't have the fire any more. Shame always fun to watch.
