Penn joined Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour, where he revealed that his retirement is officially over, and that he’s going for the featherweight strap with famed coach Greg Jackson in his corner.

“That’s who I am, Ariel. That’s who I am. That’s what I do.

“I want to go get that 145-pound belt. That’s definitely a huge motivation for me. I believe with Greg Jackson’s help, I can get that done. And I believe that I will be able to walk away as the only man with three titles in three weight divisions.”

But once in a while, you do have to step back and get someone else’s outside opinion.”

“I just started thinking about when I got shot [in 2007], all the fights I’ve been in and I felt like, ‘Oh man, I’m not gonna get a lot of chances if I keep living this lifestyle,'” Kipili Jr. said……

“What am I going to do now?” Reno asks himself after the quail eggs he tried smoking go up in flames. Without time to remake them, he relies on the flavor of smoked chicken and bacon to permeate his Chinese Chicken Salad. “I would have liked to have seen that pulled off,” Troy tells him. With Reno receiving only one negative comment, the Judges put Reno through to the shopping spree, and Benny checks out. Reno ends up earning $16,000.
