Video: UFC legend BJ Penn brawls with strip club bounce before police called
UFC legend BJ Penn allegedly brawled with a strip club bouncer outside a Honolulu nightclub on Monday night.
TMZ released a minute-long video on Tuesday allegedly Penn was the man in a video in an altercation with another individual.
Onlookers can be heard saying ‘B, stop’, as they try to peel what appears to be Penn off the club doorman.
One concerned bystander even strikes Penn, before he is pulled away from the incident.
The fight reportedly happened at Club Femme Nu and the club’s manager said Penn was removed from the nightclub because he was ‘very drunk’.
Penn, 40, became aggressive when he was being escorted out by the bouncers.
Police were called, but TMZ claim Penn had left by the time they arrived on the scene.
The altercation comes after Penn’s wife reportedly filed a restraining order against him in April after years of alleged physical and sexual abuse.
Penn is on a seven-fight losing streak and UFC president Dana White urged his fighter to retire after his most recent defeat in May.
‘I want BJ to retire,’ White said.’I love BJ Penn. BJ Penn is one of the legends of the sport.
‘This is a young man’s game. I gave him a lot of opportunities because he’s BJ and because of the relationship that I’ve had with BJ his entire career and before that.
‘But I can’t do that again. I can’t do it again.’
