Former UFC champion B.J. Penn will remain retired – at least for the time being – despite a request from his former bosses to meet Josh Koscheck inside the Octagon. Koscheck confirmed Wednesday night the UFC had offered him a fight with Penn contingent, of course, on whether or not “The Prodigy” was willing to come back to the cage.
However, Penn seems content to stay in Hawaii, train when he wants to, and help raise his children.
“I know it costs a lot of money to live that lavish lifestyle, big house, fast cars & you need big fights but sorry I’m not coming back anytime soon,” Penn exclaimed on his Twitter account yesterday.
Penn announced his retirement following a loss to Nick Diaz last year. Despite UFC President Dana White‘s attempts, as well as those like Koscheck who have tried to bait him into a bout, the native Hawaiian has yet to waiver in his contentment away from competition.
