BJ Penn Being Chased By Khabib Nurmagomedov For Fight

If former UFC champion BJ Penn does return to the Octagon at lightweight, he has at least one fighter willing to step inside the Octagon with him.

Khabib Nurmagomedov took to Twitter after news of a potential Penn return broke late Tuesday night, volunteering his services to meet “The Prodigy.”

Penn has not fought since late in 2012, losing to Rory MacDonald at welterweight. If he does return at 34 years old, he is expected to do so at 155 pounds.

Nurmagomedov is 20-0 in his career and 4-0 inside the Octagon. He recently defeated Abel Trujillo.
