After sending several messages back and forth in a social network, Carlos Condit and B.J. Penn both agreed to face each other inside the Octagon on October.
It seems that Carlos Condit and B.J. Penn are about to face each other inside the Octagon for an October bout, after exchanging messages on a social network with their fellow top ten welterweight — Jon Fitch. Carlos Condit sent a challenge to B.J. Penn, with the latter accepting it quickly. Now, the UFC is on board to set a match between the two fighters.
Carlos Condit’s manager, Malki Kawa, said in an interview that UFC matchmaker – Joe Silva – is now in the process to schedule a fight between the two welterweight contenders. However, even if the two fighters agreed to face each other on October, the match’s date is still undetermined. According to sources, UFC is planning to have a third event in October which will be set between the two shows currently scheduled.
The two scheduled shows for October are the UFC 136 on October 8 in Houston Texas, and UFC 137 on October 29 that will feature the bout between Georges St-Pierre and Nick Diaz in Las Vegas. If there will be another event on October aside from the said tournaments, it might be a UFC Fight Night show.
