It seems that Carlos Condit and 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.
