UFC Hall of Famer BJ Penn was caught on camera on Tuesday in an alleged bar fight, in full back mount landing punches to the head of another man.
Penn was at the Lava Shack in Hawaii, according to a TMZ report, which included the above video. Though the video itself isn’t clear enough to identify Penn, TMZ included a photograph of Penn from earlier in the night, which shows him wearing the same clothes as in the video.
There was evidently some sort of altercation between Penn and the unidentified man, which eventually led to them fighting, according to TMZ.
The fight ended up on the ground with Penn in mount, legs hooked in, and dropping punches. Several men in red security shirts quickly moved in to try and break up the fight.
Despite having lost his last seven bouts in a row, Penn (16-14-2) has been earmarked for a fight with Nik Lentz, although a date and venue have not been announced.
UFC president Dana White said that he was reluctant to book Penn in another fight, but that he did so upon an agreement with the Hawaiian that it would be his final fight in the Octagon.
“He terrorized me for friggen a week and wouldn’t stop texting me for three days straight and talked me into it. We have a deal now: win, lose, or draw this is BJ Penn’s last fight,” White said during the UFC 240 Post-Fight Press Conference in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
“I won’t give him another fight. It’s very clear between us now that there won’t be another fight no matter what.”
UFC officials have yet to comment on this latest incident with Penn.
