BJ Penn returns to the UFC tonight in “The Ultimate Fighter 19,” serving as a coach against rival Frankie Edgar.
This will be Penn’s second stint on TUF, having last served as a coach for lightweight fighters during season five.
More importantly, Penn and Edgar will be fighting for a third time, this time at featherweight. Edgar won the first two fights in 2010 by unanimous decision, ending Penn’s reign as UFC lightweight champion.
Penn and Edgar will fight July 6 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, one day after UFC 175. It will be an intense weekend of fights.
