Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Lightweight and Welterweight champion B.J. Penn is once again in the news for all the wrong reasons, as TMZ Sports has obtained video of “The Prodigy” allegedly involved in a street fight in Honolulu, Hawaii.
According to the report, a “very drunk” Penn was allegedly escorted out of Club Femme Nu strip club at around midnight on Tuesday (June 25, 2019) before the squabble began. On his way out, Penn and one of the bouncers allegedly got into an argument that quickly turned physical.
As the video shows, a man who appears to be Penn is on top of an unknown individual, refusing to let him up. At one point, another unidentified man attempts to break up the fight, hitting Penn in the head three times. However, that didn’t get “The Prodigy” to budge on the hold he had on the unknown individual.
Eventually the video cuts out, but the report states that by the time police showed up, Penn had already fled the scene.
Earlier this year, it came to light that “Baby J” was under investigation for allegedly threatening a man with a machete. That same month, Penn was accused of sexual and physical assault by the mother of his children.
Penn was last seen coming up short to Clay Guida at UFC 237 last month, extending his UFC losing streak to seven.
