B.J. Penn considering retirement once again

B.J. Penn may be hanging it up for good and finally calling it a career.

The UFC Hall of Famer recently appeared on an Instagram live video with his longtime coach Jason Parillo, where he discussed his future.

“It takes a lot of work,” said Penn. “It takes too much. Too much (expletive) work. At this age, it just takes too much (expletive) work. You never know what’s going to happen, but it takes so much work.”

The work load is only part of Penn’s decision. He’s also listening to other people’s opinion’s and he’s getting a mixed reviews.

“There’s so much people telling me to fight again. Other people telling me don’t fight again. It’s a lot to take in.”

Penn (16-14) is currently on a seven fighting losing streak, which is a UFC record. His last win came in 2010. Before his struggles, Penn was a UFC star and became the first person in UFC history to win titles in two weight classes.

The former lightweight and welterweight champion has had more problems in his life than his recent losing skid. Penn has a number of legal issues throughout the years, including some allegedly violent crimes.

Penn’s legal problem’s have lead to one thing that is a certain with his future. If he is to fight again, it will not happen in the UFC. He was realized from the company after a video surfaced of him fighting in the streets of Hawaii.

Following his release, Penn was arrested again in February after being hospitalized for flipping his vehicle in a possible DUI.

Penn has retired twice already during his career.
