He’s back.

UFC legend B.J. Penn will enter the Octagon for the first time in well over two years on Sunday, January 15, as he takes on rising star Yair Rodriguez in the main event of UFC Fight Night in Phoenix.

“If you go into the fight thinking he is a legend, then he will kick your ass if you respect him too much,” said Rodriguez, who is 5-0 in UFC and has risen to No. 10 in the welterweight rankings. “You have to fight him as any other guy. I always see my opponents as the best opponent at that time, the best fighter in the world, so I prepare for the best all the time. And I don’t care who’s in front of me, I will be prepared for him.”
