0

Former UFC champion BJ Penn’s Octagon return will come this June, as “The Prodigy” will face Dennis Siver at UFC 199.

The bout was first reported by Kevin Iole of Yahoo! Sports.

Penn (16-10-2) is now 37 years old and has not scored an official UFC win since 2010 when he knocked out Matt Hughes. He has gone 0-5-1 around that victory.

Siver (22-11) will be searching for his first win since a 2014 decision over Charles Rosa following losses last year to current featherweight champion Conor McGregor and Tatsuya Kawajiri.

The UFC 199 card currently features a pair of title fights, as Chris Weidman challenges Luke Rockhold for the middleweight belt and Urijah Faber does the same for bantamweight gold vs. Dominick Cruz.
