BJ Penn: “I’m not on P4P list anymore. It’s gotta be Fedor.”

Former UFC Lightweight Champion BJ Penn is already thinking gameplan when it comes to his rematch with newly crowned lightweight champion, Frankie Edgar after coming up short at UFC 112: Invincible in Abu Dhabi. The Hawaiian has stated he is not on the P4P list and that honor, according to “The Prodigy,” now goes to Fedor Emelianenko.

Penn, speaking via Sports Radio Interviews on 106.7 The Fan, said:

“I’m not happy about losing the title. I don’t want to take anything away from Frankie. He did a good job. As a fighter, you’re always thinking you’re winning the fight and you never think you’re losing. You just have that mental mindset. Looking back at it, I just want to congratulate Frankie. My first thought was I gotta get back in the ring immediately and I want to get back on track. The UFC actually called us yesterday and they want to put a rematch in the works and we’ll see what goes from here.”

“I think I got a good idea at what he’s gonna try and do. I know his power, I know how hard he punches, and I know the way he moves. I got that pictured in my mind. The rematch is going to be more technical. After my defeat decision the past couple of days ago, I’m not on [the pound-for-pound] list anymore. It’s gotta be Fedor. He finishes his guys and how can I argue against him?”
