    B.J. Penn

    Biography

    B.J. Penn Was born in December 13, 1978 In America.

At the age of seventeen, Penn began training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu after being introduced to it by his neighbor,

    Fighting career

    Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu:
    In 1997 Penn began training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Ralph Gracie, eventually earning his purple belt from Gracie.

    Ultimate Fighting Championship:
    His accomplishments in the World Jiu-Jitsu Championship caught the attention of Dana White and the Ultimate Fighting Championship who convinced him to switch to MMA.

    Fighting and Entertainment Group
    Shortly after defeating Hughes, Penn signed to fight for the Japanese Fighting and Entertainment Group’s (FEG) K-1 promotion citing a lack of challenging fights left for him in the UFC. The UFC promptly stripped him of the welterweight title, claiming Penn breached his contract and that the signing constituted him refusing to defend his title. Penn filed a suit against the UFC and publicized his side of the conflict, claiming his UFC contract had already expired. Penn filed a motion to stop the UFC from awarding a new welterweight title, but that motion was denied. In his first fight for FEG, Penn fought again at welterweight (170 pounds) and defeated Duane Ludwig at the 2004 K-1 MMA Romanex show in under five minutes by arm triangle choke.

    Return to the UFC:
    In early 2006 at UFC 56, UFC president Dana White announced that Penn and the UFC had agreed to a settlement and Penn was to return as a top welterweight contender. Penn re-debuted on March 4 at UFC 58, losing to Georges St. Pierre by split decision in a fight that determined the number one welterweight contender.
