It seems BJ Penn cannot escape Mike Dolce.

On Wednesday, during an appearance on UFC Tonight, the former two-division champion and UFC Hall of Famer was asked about his relationship with the nutrition guru and his infamous weight cut to featherweight.

“I’m sick and tired of hearing about Mike Dolce,” fumed Penn.

Penn’s response should come as no surprise to no one as both men have repeatedly taken at the other’s work ethic for the last year.

The entire beef stems from Penn’s (16-10-2) third round TKO to Frankie Edgar at The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale in 2014. This marked Penn’s first foray into the UFC’s featherweight division, a feat Dolce helped him achieve, after spending most of his career competing as a member of the lightweight and welterweight division. Penn would announce his retirement from the sport of mixed martial arts immediately after the loss

However it was not soon after, Penn revealed he regretted hiring Dolce to help him make the cut to 145-pounds.

Dolce would later reveal his account, claiming Penn didn’t take this training camp seriously ahead up to this contest with Edgar. Penn would go o to refute Dolce’s claims, accusing the nutritionist of paying little to no attention to him even though he was paying him $20,000.

But now Penn it seems ready to squash the beef in the former of a grudge match with one of Dolce’s top fighters.

“I’ll take out your boy Nik Lentz in one round and then find you in the back and smash you,” revealed Penn.

If Lentz (25–7–2), a former NCAA Division I wrestler out of the University of Minnesota does accepts the challenge, he will have to make the drop back down to 145-pounds as he’s currently matched up with Danny Castillo in a lightweight contest at UFC on FOX 17 in December.

“The Carney” previously fought at featherweight from 2012-2015, earning a record of 4-2 in the process. His last appearance was a third round submission loss to Charles Oliveira. It was not soon after, Lentz announced he was moving back to 155-pounds.

The timing of couldn’t have come at a more interesting time, as fellow Hawaiian Max Holloway recently revealed Penn would come out of retirement if the UFC held its first event in Hawaii.

Neither Lentz or Dolce has responded to Penn’s challenge
