Published 08/30/2021, 11:56 PM EDT


BJ Penn earned a name for himself in the UFC by fighting in two different weight classes. During his time with the promotion, Penn competed at both lightweight and welterweight. However, he was able to secure UFC gold at 155-pounds on more than one occasion. Penn also defended the belt multiple times and paved the way for an influx of talent in MMA from Hawaii.

‘The Problem Child’ caused a lot of confusion in the world of combat sports with his recent tweet. Just a day after the biggest win of his career on the biggest possible stage, Paul put out a tweet that stated he was retired. Jake Paul went toe-to-toe against Tyron Woodley and secured a split-decision win on August 29. 

Following the fight, both men agreed that if Tyron Woodley gets an ‘I love Jake Paul’ tattoo, the two men would run it back immediately. This was a bet that Woodley accepted with no hesitation. However, Paul’s recent tweets suggest he might be done with the sport altogether, thus ruling out a potential rematch.

This is highly unlikely as he has just started in the sport and has ambitions of facing the likes of Conor McGregor and Canelo Alvarez, among others. With the win, Paul has only further solidified his place as a legitimate fighter and a big draw in the sport.

Hence, it will be interesting to see if he runs it back immediately with Tyron Woodley or opts for a bigger name in his next fight. Or has he really retired?
