Mike Dolce Releases Statement On Working With BJ Penn, Heading To Hawaii

Don’t be surprised if you start seeing Mike Dolce sporting some Team Penn attire in the near future.

The famed dietitian has now committed to assisting with the nutrition needs of BJ Penn as he ascends weight classes from welterweight to featherweight for his upcoming fight against Frankie Edgar.

Here is what Dolce released to

“BJ Penn is the greatest mixed martial artist of all time,” Dolce said. “He is a legend – a two-division world champion as a 170-pound welterweight and a 155-pound lightweight that has been fighting professionally before most athletes even knew what MMA or the UFC was. It is a great honor to join BJ on his journey back into the Octagon and, in my opinion, to make history as the first ever three-division world champion in our sport.”

“First thing’s first,” Dolce said. “We have a very tough Frankie Edgar standing in our way and in speaking to BJ, that is exactly the way he wants it! I will be flying out to Hilo, Hawaii this week to begin growing my relationship with BJ and offer my skills to his camp.”
