UFC Fight Night - Rodriguez Vs. Penn

The return of the "The Prodigy"  has finally arrived. Penn last fought in the UFC in 2014, and hasn't won a fight since 2010. He has fought at 3 different weight classes in his career. At the age of 38, He has been far past his prime in fighting. Yair Rodriguez is a young prospect with a ton of talent. With only 1 loss in his career, Rodriguez is ranked #10 in the division. The co-main event should be an exciting grappling match. Marcin Held is one of the best grapplers in the world. Joe Lauzon has been one of the more entertaining fighters to watch. They both have high level jiu-jitsu skill, which will make this one entertaining fight. Another fun fight should be in the flyweight division between two ranked opponents. John Moraga versus Sergio Pettis could give a glimpse of which fighter in 2017 could be fighting for a chance at the title.
