Anthony “Rumble” Johnson throws his name into the mix to face BJ Penn

UFC welterweight, Anthony “Rumble” Johnson has become the latest 170 pounder to throw his name into the hat for a potential fight against former UFC lightweight champion, BJ Penn, explaining if the opportunity presented itself he’d be all over it.

Johnson, speaking via MMADieHards.com, said:

“Hell, if I fight B.J. they’re for sure going to have to renegotiate my contract. If the opportunity was presented, would I take a fight like that? Yeah. I don’t say no to fights and I like to fight, if I’m winning or not, I still like to fight. So yeah, I would take that fight. I feel like at this point I have no choice but to be ready.”
