UFC Fight Night 97 Picks Up Penn-Lamas

Ricardo Lamas

Former UFC lightweight and welterweight champion B.J. Penn will end his two-year retirement this October, taking on Ricardo Lamas at featherweight at UFC Fight Night 97.

Penn (16-10-2) walked away once more from MMA following a 2014 loss to Frankie Edgar. Overall, the 37-year-old is 12-9-2 in his UFC career. Lamas (16-5) has fought for UFC featherweight gold, losing to Jose Aldo via decision.

Along with Penn-Lamas, Derrick Lewis takes on Marcin Tybura in a heavyweight affair.
