B.J. Penn has kept a relatively low profile since his UFC comeback ended with a disappointing majority decision loss to Dennis Siver this past June. The setback put Penn on a five-fight losing streak, and afterward, many within the MMA community wondered whether that would be the end of the road for the UFC Hall of Famer.

It's evident in his last multiple fights that there is no fire left and it's just a payday. So much wasted potential.

I think BJ Penn enjoys "the thought" of fighting but the game has since passed him, his old school skillset these days just doesn't cut it in modern MMA-UFC and I'm still not sold on his work ethic, sure he's made camp changes but nothing has impressed us fans in every single comeback fight he's had since 2011. He should've officially hung it up the night Nick Diaz beat him up pretty good.
