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."

I would love to see a motivated BJ back at 155. IF, and it is a big IF, BJ were to get serious about his body, cardio, and training again I think he has a good shot at beating Benson. A motivated, in shape BJ Penn is still one of the best P4P on the planet.

How can you not love this guy ?? Regardless of what he did in the past, regardless of what he does in the future, A true fighter at heart, always will be one of the greats. I would love to sit down and have drink with him, I'm sure the talk of all the things fighting would be epic. Phone Post 3.0

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

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

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.
