The UFC has launched an investigation into legendary fighter BJ Penn -- after a former writer on Penn's website claimed BJ sexually assaulted his girlfriend.
The writer is Pedro Alex Carrasco -- who went to Twitter and said BJ recently came to his home "when I wasn't there and forced himself on my girl, pulled her clothes off, then blamed me, said I looked at his GF ass."
Pedro's girlfriend reportedly filed charged is Ohio -- and the UFC has already announced it's looking into the situation.
"UFC is aware of the recent allegations made against BJ Penn."
"Every athlete is deserving of proper review and this situation, as with any serious allegation, will be investigated by an independent party and thoroughly reviewed by the UFC."
"The UFC organization will also cooperate with any law enforcement investigation."
UFC says they've put any plans to book Penn in a fight on hold until they know more about the situation.
We've reached out to Penn -- so far, no word back.

Last month former UFC champion BJ Penn announced that he was officially ending his retirement and going after the 145 pound belt. Penn teamed up with Greg Jackson and Mike Winkeljohn at Jackson-Wink MMA for his highly anticipated return.

While he was initially supposed to return on March 5th, the UFC pushed the bout back to April however no opponent has been named for ‘The Prodigy’ in his return bout.

Recently however former BJPenn.com employee Pedro Carrasco’s girlfriend Amber Paxton filed a report with the Ohio Police in which Penn was accused of sexual assault.

In the wake of those allegations, the UFC has released a statement via UFC.com regarding the accusations:

“UFC is aware of the recent allegations made against BJ Penn. The organization requires all athletes who compete in the UFC to act in an ethical and responsible manner, as detailed in the UFC Fighter Conduct Policy. UFC will not tolerate violations of the policy. Every athlete is deserving of proper review and this situation, as with any serious allegation, will be investigated by an independent party and thoroughly reviewed by the UFC. The UFC organization will also cooperate with any law enforcement investigation. In light of the serious allegations, UFC has postponed plans to book Penn for an upcoming bout until more details are determined.

UFC holds athletes who compete in the organization to the highest standard and will continue to take appropriate action, if and when warranted. It is important to note that Penn is considered innocent until proven guilty and UFC is not prejudging this matter.”

Yeah I just heard about this.

I hope this isn't true, mainly because you don't ever live something like this down, and his fans are gonna be crushed by this.

I don't think it is to shitty to think that at all. sadly most things i have heard about him via friends who met him,other trainers who worked with him and small sports journal outlets usually don't have a lot of nice things to say about him. I have read some where that some of the other admins who cover his site bjpenn.com have even said they wouldn't be surprised at all if this is true either.

Well, yeah. He's a cocky rich spoiled brat with a huge ego.
Although, everything deserves it's proper investigation into the truth, it sure makes these allegations not that surprising when you carry yourself a certain way.

1000% agree. I'm not saying he did do it either but just from what i have heard about him it wouldn't be that far fetched.
