After nearly a year of back and forth trash talking, the former UFC Lightweight Champion and former UFC Welterweight Champion has finally had enough as BJ Penn challenges Nik Lentz to face him at UFC 197 in March. UFC 197 is already a very stacked card with Conor McGregor facing Rafael Dos Anjos and Holly Holm facing Meisha Tate, but if this fight comes to fruition, this could become the biggest card in UFC history. Penn has not fought since a third straight loss to former UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar at the UFC Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale. Lentz recently returned to the lightweight division after a stint in the featherweight division, where he earned four victories in six fights. BJ Penn is already a legend in the sport of mixed martial arts and if Nik Lentz wants to become a legend himself, he needs to defeat the former two division champion.
