BJ Penn: “If Dana wants a five-round fight, just give me a call and we can put it together right now.”

Former UFC lightweight and welterweight champion, BJ Penn has accepted the offer of a five-round fight against Strikeforce welterweight champion, Nick Diaz at UFC 137, but only if he’s compensated by Dana White, The UFC or Cesar Gracie himself.

Penn, speaking via MMAWeekly, said:

“I want to be compensated accordingly and that’s it. I’m more than willing to do a five-round fight. If Dana wants a five-round fight, just give me a call and we can put it together right now. Or if Cesar wants to make it a five-round fight and he wants to compensate me personally, he can put his money where his mouth is, it’s that easy. I’ve been training to fight. I’m ready to fight.”
