UFC FN 103: Yair Rodriguez Takes Out BJ Penn in Comeback Fight
By FCF Staff
As many pundits and observers predicted would be the case, rising featherweight Yair Rodriguez proved to be too much for the legendary BJ Penn at UFC Fight Night 103.
Rodriguez kept Penn on the defensive with a steady stream of kicks in the opening round, and not long into round two, he floored the decorated fighter with a front kick. Rodriguez fired down punches from above, and as Penn attempted to recover, the bout was stopped. The latter was fighting for the first time since 2014.
