Nik Lentz Calls BJ Penn a “Spoiled Little Rich Kid” After Legend Calls Him Out

After being called out by BJ Penn, in connection to the legend’s issues with Mike Dolce, Nik Lentz has fired back via Instagram.

Penn appeared on the latest edition of “UFC Tonight“, and during the interview, he was asked about his well documented issues with Dolce. The fitness and nutrition coach was hired by Penn to help prepare him for his bout last summer with Frankie Edgar, and after the one sided defeat, he and Dolce were critical of one another.

During Penn’s interview on Wednesday, “The Prodigy” stated (quote via FOX Sports 1 press release):

“I’m sick and tired of hearing about Mike Dolce. I’ll put a challenge out right now: You go get Nik Lentz, your boy, bring him down to 145 and I’ll run right through him in one round and then I’ll find you in the back and smash you. If Dolce says I don’t train, let’s do this. I would come out for this. Some things were said, got heated. I worked with him for 20 days and paid him $1000 a day. I’m sick of hearing that.”

The comments didn’t take long to reach Lentz, who has since posted the following response on Instagram:

I don’t even and have not worked with Dolce for quite some time…so fighting with me will have nothing to do with Dolce…but for the record…f–k you BJ. You talk too much now…you use to be about actions, but now like the spoiled little rich kid you are, all you do is talk. I’ll gladly fight you anytime. So get your mom and daddy to paint you some plans, fly Hawaii out to Vegas, give little baby Penn what he wants and come out of retirement …. This time I’ll make sure to retire you properly#BringPennBack

Lentz, meanwhile, is coming off a submission loss to Charles Oliveira in May.
