BJ Penn appeared to confirm the end of his MMA career on Saturday, revealing he cannot see one challenge that could tempt him out of retirement.

Penn, one of only two men to win a UFC title in separate divisions, hung up his mitts after defeat to Nick Diaz. However, he has since been quoted as saying that he would return if he began to feel the fire once again.

The Hawaiian has been linked to fights with Gilbert Melendez and new UFC lightweight champion Ben Henderson, but the Prodigy appears to be very happy to stay outside of the Octagon.

"I haven't made any plans to come back and fight again," Penn said on Fuel TV. "Dana White has called me a few times, but I'm staying retired.

i honestly hope he doesnt get talked into staying unless it's someone he can truly get motivated for. an unmotivated BJ is not what i want to see, so if this is how he feels then i hope he stays retired.

Would like to see him go out on a win but theres no need to come out of retirement if is head isnt in it. One of the greatest to fight in MMA he will be missed!

The only way I see him fighting again, is if GSP loses the belt within a year or two, and gets offered GSP.

He will stay retired, unless the money is right.

Why in the world would he want that fight?

Unless it's a fight with Condit (Not while he has the interim title or the regular title if he manages to win it) or a return to the LW division I think BJ should just stay retired.

A return to LW would really get me excited though.

I doubt he stays retired. He will be back in 2013

Said it once, I'll say it again, a motivated BJ sounds like when your girlfriend is trying
REALLY hard to get you off.
