B.J. Penn wants a third UFC title

Updated: December 6, 2016

B.J. Penn is a legend in the world of mixed martial arts. With the UFC, he is only one of three fighters to hold a title in two separate divisions: welterweight and lightweight. At UFC Fight Night 103, Penn will begin his quest to acquire an unprecedented third championship belt in a completely different weight class by facing the featherweight division’s No. 10 contender, Yair Rodriguez.

At UFC 46, Penn defeated UFC Hall of Fame legend Matt Hughes for the welterweight title. Then, at UFC 80, he submitted Joe Stevenson to secure the lightweight title. Only two other fighters have held titles in two separate weight classes: Randy Couture and Conor McGregor. However, Penn wishes to acquire a title in a third weight class, which has never been achieved before in the UFC.
