While all the attention if on former UFC champion B.J. Penn this week as he prepares to headline UFC 137 on Saturday night, B.J.’s younger brother Reagan Penn is ready to step back into the cage himself. MMA organization ProElite announced today that Reagan will compete in his second professional bout against Evan Cutts as part of Pro Elite’s second event on November 5.
Reagan made his MMA debut this past August at Pro Elite’s inaugural event in his hometown of Hilo, Hawaii where he made short work of Paul Gardiner, submitting him in just over a minute with a rear naked choke in the first round.
Cutts is a 20-year-old up and comer out of Texas looking to cash in on the last name “Penn” with the biggest victory of his career. In his two professional bouts he finished both of his opponents with a submission in the first round.
“ProElite: Big Guns” is scheduled for November 5 at IWireless Center in Moline, Illinois. The card is headlined by Tim Sylvia taking on Andreas Kraniotakes and also features Andrei Arlovski against Travis Fulton.
