Breaking: The Prodigy Returns


Former UFC lightweight and welterweight champion BJ Penn will return to the octagon this summer when he meets Dennis Siver in a featherweight bout at UFC 199 in June.

The return will mark The Prodigy’s first return to the octagon since a 2014 loss to Frankie Edgar. Siver last fought back in June 2015 and lost a decision to Tatsuya Kawajiri.

UFC 199 takes place June 4 and is headlined by a middleweight title fight rematch featuring current champ Luke Rockhold defending his title against former title holder Chris Weidman. In the co-main event, UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz will defend his title against  Urijah Faber.
