UFC legend and former two-division champ BJ Penn had a dubious record on the line heading into his preliminary card bout with Clay Guida at tonight’s (Sat., May 11, 2019) UFC 237 from Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Penn had a six-fight losing streak intact, his last win coming over former champ Matt Hughes in 2010. Many called for ‘The Prodigy’ to retire, but he fought on.
He didn’t look bad in the early going of his bout with ‘The Carpenter,’ but ultimately Guida scored the more impressive attack. In the third round, he rocked ‘The Prodigy’ with a crisp combo of varied punches.
