Former UFC world-champion, BJ Penn, recently announced he has brought in Mike Dolce as a member of his exclusive coaching staff to prepare THE PRODIGY for his historic assault on the 145-pound weight class in a grudge match with former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar. The fight is slated to take place April 2014.
“BJ Penn is the greatest mixed martial artist of all time,” Dolce said. “He is a legend – a two-division world champion as a 170-pound welterweight and a 155-pound lightweight that has been fighting professionally before most athletes even knew what MMA or the UFC was. It is a great honor to join BJ on his journey back into the Octagon and, in my opinion, to make history as the first ever three-division world champion in our sport.”
“First thing’s first,” Dolce said. “We have a very tough Frankie Edgar standing in our way and in speaking to BJ, that is exactly the way he wants it! I will be flying out to Hilo, Hawaii this week to begin growing my relationship with BJ and offer my skills to his camp.”
