At the UFC 232 prelims, two division champion B.J. Penn took yet another loss. He faced off against Ryan Hall, and it only took a little over two minutes to submit the decorated champion. After a brief feeling out period, Hall threw a kick, before rolling for a leg and instantly submitting Penn.
Penn, who used to have a vaunted BJJ game back in the day, actually rolled into the heel hook and got submitted instantly. Watch the clip of the finish below:

The end officially came at 2:47 of the very first round.
For the BJJ whiz in Hall, this makes him 3-0 in the UFC, despite not having competed in two years. Penn, on the other hand, dropped his sixth bout in a row, and has only won one out of his last ten fights dating back to 2010.
Hall is certainly a tricky opponent, but the 40-year-old Penn hasn’t looked good in a while, and probably has to seriously consider retirement at this point.
