“The Prodigy” isn’t obsolete yet.

Former two-division champion B.J. Penn will take on fellow BJJ ace and The Ultimate Fighter 22 winner Ryan Hall in a featured lightweight bout later this year at UFC 232.

The 39-year-old Penn has not won a fight in nearly eight years. He most recently lost a majority decision to Dennis Siver at UFC Oklahoma City in June 2017. Penn has held UFC gold in both the lightweight and welterweight divisions. However, he competed as a featherweight in his last three fights.
