BJ Penn vs Frankie Edgar III
The UFC announced that the coaches for TUF 19 will be Frankie Edgar and BJ Penn’, creating a trilogy inside the octagon.
In the first two meetings Edgar beat the Prodigy for the UFC’s Lightweight belt but this time we might actually see a toned Penn because this meeting will be at 145 pounds. We haven’t seen Penn since his lopsided defeat against Rory McDonald at 170 pounds which makes you believe if he loses again to Edgar, this could be more of a long goodbye then a welcoming party to the featherweight division.
What do you guys think, is this a way for the UFC to squeeze every last ounce of Penn’s fan drawing power or is this a legit comeback opportunity for one of the most beloved legends the sport has ever seen to get back on the winning track?
