The Prodigy, BJ Penn is in a hurry for a new challenger and he may have just found one. The former champion took to twitter calling out his last opponent Jon Fitch for a rematch yesterday before having the idea shot down by UFC match maker Sean Shelby as a ‘boring match-up.’ Penn then looked to the likely other top contender Carlos Condit who has been on a four-fight tear in the UFC including the last two via KO.
From @CarlosCondit: The people have spoken @bjpenndotcom, they want to see us scrap, let’s give em what they asked for
From @bjpenndotcom: @CarlosCondit Yup. Let’s do it! October 29th
This time around Shelby has not chimed in to disagree. The bout seems logical, now we just need to wait for the UFC paperwork before it’s official.
