bj penn_fs1

Once editor of BJPenn.com, Pedro Carrasco, has accused former UFC lightweight champion BJ Penn of sexual assault. His girlfriend claims he forced himself on her and Pedro claims BJ said he did it because Carrasco looked at his girlfriend’s backside. It’s all a big media mess and Penn’s camp has been silent – until now.

Here is a statement from his team to TMZ:

In the almost 15 years that Penn has been a champion fighter there has not ever been any incident or allegation in regards to his conduct with women. He is a family man and father of two young daughters with a long term girlfriend. It is unfortunate that someone that BJ considered family is trying to extort him.

Penn is prevented from making his UFC return until the UFC concludes an independent investigation in to the allegations.

Stay tuned for more as it develops…
