BJ Penn’s retirement was as shocking as it was sad.
After suffering perhaps the worst defeat of his career, Penn announced that he was stepping away from the sport.
Penn may have been 1-3-1 in his last five fights, but don’t let the record fool you.
One of his losses was a close bout with Frankie Edgar that could have gone his way.
He also fought to a draw with Jon Fitch, ending the welterweight contender's long winning streak. If Penn had more in the gas tank, he could have easily took the fight.
Penn’s one of the greatest fighters in MMA history and is the only man beside Randy Couture to win a UFC title in two different weight divisions.
Penn may have called it quits for now in the Octagon, but he’s staying busy outside of it.
