How does BJ Penn vs Jon Fitch II taste? Like a thrice reheated instant coffee. You’d drink it if you had to, but you wouldn’t be proud of yourself and it would probably leave a horrible after-taste. Joe Silva apparently agrees. The UFC matchmaker has refused to match BJ with Fitch for a second time after the two agreed to meet via Twitter. You can fit a whole lot of fighting words in only 140 characters though, making it perfect to canvas opponents directly. I tend to use my 140 characters to talk about what I would be doing at that moment if I wasn’t tweeting. Carlos Condit is a professional fighter and while I’m sure he gets up to the same banal activities we all do, he at least makes better use of his Twitter account. At least I assume he does, after using it last night to arrange a fight with @BJPenndotcom and it looks like they will get their way.
Multiple media sources are reporting that the bout is likely to be on UFC 137, the same event as GSP vs Diaz, potentially setting up a number one contender slot for the winner. If Joe Silva is reading this, I’d like to propose matching up Jon Fitch and Rick Story but maybe I’d be better putting that on Twitter?
