UFC lightweight champion B.J. Penn will be the newest MMA fighter to appear on a 24-ounce Mickey's MMA Collector Can.
The cans will be rolled out and available for purchase at stores coast to coast beginning next week.
Penn joins other fighters such as Rich Franklin, Georges St. Pierre, Chuck Liddell, Tito Ortiz, Kendall Grove and other notables who have adorned Mickey's cans.
Penn (13-4-1), who next meets Georges St. Pierre for his UFC welterweight title on Jan. 31, is one of the most popular and accomplished fighters in MMA history. He won the UFC's welterweight title at UFC 46 in 2004, and after leaving the organization to compete overseas, eventually returned to the UFC in 2006. After serving as a coach on "The Ultimate Fighter 5," he defeated Joe Stevenson for the UFC's vacant lightweight earlier this year.
Mickey's, a longtime MMA sponsor and supporter, has also been a longtime MMAjunkie.com advertiser. For more on the collector cans and exclusive video interviews with Mickey's sponsored fighters, go to www.mickeys.com.
