BJ Penn’s UFC career has officially come to an end. Yahoo Sports’ Kevin Iole reports that, per UFC president Dana White, Penn has officially been handed his walking papers from the Las Vegas-based mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion.

White had previously stated that Penn’s career in the UFC was done after video footage surfaced of the Hawaiian being knocked out cold in a street fight. The UFC boss bluntly put it, “That’s a wrap.”

“He won’t fight again. That’s it. That’s a wrap,” White said. “It’s not even that this was the last straw. I didn’t love him continuing to fight anyway. But when you have the relationship that he and I have, and he’s getting me on the phone begging me for another fight, begging me for another opportunity, it’s hard for me to turn him down.

“But after what I saw on that video, B.J. needs to focus on his personal life and get himself together before he thinks about fighting again.”

Before the street fight knockout, Penn was expected to face Nik Lentz to settle a longstanding beef between the pair. However, that’s now completely off the table after the former lightweight and welterweight champion’s release from the promotion.

“He won’t fight again. That’s it. That’s a wrap,” White said. “It’s not even that this was the last straw. I didn’t love him continuing to fight anyway. But when you have the relationship that he and I have, and he’s getting me on the phone begging me for another fight, begging me for another opportunity, it’s hard for me to turn him down.

“But after what I saw on that video, B.J. needs to focus on his personal life and get himself together before he thinks about fighting again.”

White admitted that he has yet to inform Penn of the news personally. But he hopes that he takes the steps necessary to work on himself after his recent issues. He also noted that, should Penn need anything, all he has to do is pick up the phone.

“I don’t want to sit here on TV and pick B.J. Penn apart and his life,” White said. “We all know what B.J. Penn needs to do, and hopefully B.J. Penn knows what B.J. Penn needs to do. I’m not going to sit here like I’m his father, or I’m some guy who’s above him and pointing the finger at B.J., and ‘B.J. needs to do this and that.’

“What I saw on that video was sad. I love the kid, and I hope he gets his life together. Obviously, the guy calls me and I’m still putting him in fights. If B.J. needed me, all he’s got to do to is pick up the phone and ask. If he does, I’m sure he’ll call. If he doesn’t, I hope he gets his life together.”
