July’s UFC 200 event in Las Vegas just added another blockbuster fight.
Former UFC lightweight and welterweight title holder BJ Penn (16-10-2 MMA) will return to the octagon on July 9 to take on bitter rival Georges St. Pierre (25-2 MMA).
The bout will reportedly take place in the UFC lightweight division (155-pounds).
“The Prodigy” will fight for the first time since suffering a TKO loss to Frankie Edgar in July of 2014. Penn has gone 1-3-1 over his past five octagon appearances.
The fight will mark the first time “GSP” has competed in the cage since November of 2013, when he scored a split-decision victory over Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 to retain his welterweight championship.
The Canadian superstar will look to extend his current win streak to thirteen in a row by earning a victory over BJ Penn at this summer’s highly-anticipated UFC 200 event.
