Report: Dennis Siver no Longer Fighting BJ Penn at UFC 199
By FCF Staff
The UFC’s summer schedule has been hit by another injury, as according to a recent report, Dennis Siver will no longer fight BJ Penn, June 4th. The bout was scheduled to be part of UFC 199, which will take place in Los Angeles, California.
Penn has told BJ Penn.com that the UFC informed him that Siver has incurred an injury, and as a result, is withdrawing from the bout. The promotion is working on a new opponent for the former lightweight and welterweight champ.
The 37 year-old Penn hasn’t fought since 2014 when he was stopped by Frankie Edgar. Siver, who is also 37, is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Tatsuya Kawajiri last summer.
