Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) two-division champion, BJ Penn, faces off with top featherweight prospect Yair Rodriguez TONIGHT (Sun., Jan. 15, 2017) at UFC Fight Night 103 inside Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix, Arizona.
It’s been a little over six years since Penn won a mixed martial arts (MMA) fight. He’s lost to a number of top contenders in multiple divisions during that time period, but “The Prodigy” really needs to prove that he has something left in the tank in this match up.
On the other hand, Rodriguez is one of the fastest rising and most unique up-and-comers around. The Mexican striker’s flashy style of jump and spinning kicks have already earned him plenty of fans, but there’s always a chance that this could turn out to be a far tougher test than expected for “Pantera”
