With the return of “The Prodigy” BJ Penn just a bit more than a week away, let’s take a look back at his amazing 2015 UFC Hall of Fame induction speech.  He’s long been considered one of the best ever, and his return is highly anticipated.

Penn’s illustrious career contains wins over the likes of Din Thomas, Caol Uno, Matt Serra, Renzo Gracie, Sean Sherk, Kenny Florian, Jens Pulver and the great Matt Hughes.   He is a former two division UFC Champion, having held the belts in both the Lightweight and Welterweight divisions.  BJ also holds the rare honor of being ranked the number 1 contender in two weight classes.  The list goes on and on when it comes to his amazing accomplishments.

Some people always said he did not do all he could with his amazing talent.  To that BJ responds in his speech, “I did more.  I achieved everything I ever wanted.”  It’s hard to argue with that.

Fellow UFC Hall of Famer Matt Hughes introduces Penn after a brief introduction with Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta.  It’s a reminder of why we all love BJ Penn and his sense of humor, spirit and undeniable drive to succeed.
