The story behind BJ and Frankie

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard

‘The Progidy’, ‘The Prodidy’ ‘ The Prodigy’ BJ
and his nemesis, Frankie Edgar, have signed on to be the
coaches of

The Ultimate Fighter

season 19.

After taking an extended hiatus from fighting after his 3 round
drubbing at the hands of one of MMA’s finest young talents, Rory
MacDonald, Penn returns to face a familiar opponent in a completely
new weight class.

Dropping to 145lbs will be a challenge for the often physically
limited Hawaiian, but as we’ve seen time and time again, a
motivated BJ Penn can beat just about anyone.

UFC President Dana White seems pretty fired up about the recent
events as well. In fact, he came on UFC Tonight to explain how this
seemingly improbable match up came to be.
