PHOTOS | BJ Penn and Yair Rodriguez make weight for ‘UFC Phoenix’

BJ 'The Prodigy' Penn

Friday morning in Phoenix, Arizona, UFC Hall of Famer BJ Penn hit the scales ahead of his ‘UFC Fight Night: Phoenix’ scrap on January 15th, where he will face streaking featherweight Yair Rodriguez.

For Penn, the experience was his first time participating in the UFC’s early weigh-ins, which began in 2016 in order to give fighters more time to rehydrate between weigh-ins, and the time they step into the Octagon on fight night.

Penn hit the scales at 146 pounds, the limit for a featherweight non-title fight, while Yair Rodriguez hit the scales at 145 pounds.
