Cesar Gracie on BJ Penn: “Don’t be scared, homie. Let’s make it five rounds”

Cesar Gracie, the manager of Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz, has called out BJ Penn to accept a five round main event fight against Diaz at UFC 137.

Gracie, speaking via MMAFighting.com, said:

“If they can’t fight five rounds against each other, how are they going to fight five rounds against GSP? Dana is good with it. We’ve agreed to it. If BJ agrees to it, we’ll make it happen.”

“These guys have to prove they are ready. These guys are fighters. BJ has always said he’s a warrior. … The old school days of MMA, back when it was NHB, they fought forever. Don’t be scared, homie. Let’s make it five rounds.”
