BJ Penn may not be returning to the Octagon anytime soon, but he'll have a UFC gym to train at if he wants. The UFC announced on Monday that the UFC GYM BJ Penn will open for business today.

The 37,000-square foot facility is located in Honolulu, and is the first fighter-inspired gym to open. Penn was recently offered a fight with Josh Koscheck, but turned it down.

"I've always dreamed of putting my name on a gym in my homeland of Hawaii and I'm so grateful that I finally have the opportunity to do so with my partners at UFC GYM," Penn said. "My new signature gym is not a traditional health club or just a fight club, but it offers all the tools you and your family needs to get results."
