UFC Hall of Famer B.J. Penn will make his return to competition in December when he takes on Ryan Hall at UFC 232.

UFC officials today announced the lightweight bout between Penn (16-12-2 MMA, 12-11-2 UFC) and Hall (6-1 MMA, 2-0 UFC).

UFC 232 takes place Dec. 29 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims expected on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass, though broadcast plans haven’t been finalized.

Penn, a former UFC lightweight and welterweight champion, hasn’t fought since June 2017 when he suffered a majority decision loss to Dennis Siver at UFC Fight Night 112. The Hawaiian is winless over his past six bouts and hasn’t got his hand raised since a 21-second knockout of Matt Hughes at UFC 123 in November 2010. The 39-year-old will return to 155 pounds for the first time in more then eight years.

Attempting to force Penn’s skid to continue will be “The Ultimate Fighter 22” winner Hall, 33, who hasn’t competed since a December 2016 victory over Gray Maynard at The Ultimate Fighter 24 Finale.

I think you're forgetting his 11 second demolition of Shooto 155 champ Caol Uno in just his third professional fight at UFC 34 Evil. It's a long time ago now but he really was a phenom in the early days. Then he quit the weight division game and started fighting bigger guys.

I'll always back BJ. He fought above his weight class numerous times without complaints. Like an American Sakuraba.

If Ryan Hall doesn't win this he's a total failure.

This is coming from a guy who has watched all of his DVDs.

I started off really liking BJ but the charm wore off quickly. His performances went from phenomenal to inconsistent to consistently terrible.

Any blitz victory should be taken with a grain of salt. BJ vs Uno I was akin to Belfort rushing Wanderlei.

I hope Ryan Hall wins this fight easily. If he doesn't, they're both dead to me.

In my mind both BJ and Belfort are bullies. If by the third minute of the fight, they don't have a sense that they can overwhelm their opponent, they just crumble. They have to be some of the most driven, yet weakest minded fighters of all time. No Heart. It's Cowardice really.

Yeah. Belfort tried to bully sakuraba but it didn't work

Penn fades if he can't impose his will early on

BJ was always a hero for a manlet like me that thinks cutting weight is beta behavoir.

I wish he just retired a long time ago.

Motivated BJ Penn is one of those mythical mma creatures that are legend like TRT Vitor, Sea Level Cain, and good knees Shogun, or a weight cutting Roy Nelson.
