Shortly after the news came out on Tuesday that BJ Penn vs. Dennis Siver would serve as the main event of the preliminary card for next month’s UFC 199 event, the fight itself was scrapped.
BJPenn.com was the first to report the news that Siver has suffered an undisclosed injury and had to pull out of the scheduled fight against “The Prodigy” as a result.
As of this writing, there is no word as to whether or not Penn will remain on the card. Penn last fought in 2014, dropping a third fight to former UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar. He was scheduled to make his Octagon return at UFC 199 against Siver next month. We will keep you posted regarding Penn’s UFC 199 status.
UFC 199 takes place on Sarturday, June 4, 2016 at The Forum in Inglewood, California.
