Dana White Thinking Crazy Option for BJ Penn’s Co-Main Opponent at UFC 137

UFC President, Dana White told the press yesterday that they would “flip out” if they knew who he was trying to line up for former lightweight champion, BJ Penn at UFC 137 next month after the Hawaiian lost his opponent.

Dana, speaking during yesterday’s press conference, said:

“I’m sure I’m going to have one seriously pissed off Hawaiian to deal with. I’m working on that now…If I told you what I want to do with that fight you guys would flip out, so we’ll see what happens.”

Speculation is that the UFC could line Penn up with a Strikeforce welterweight champion, Nick Diaz, the man who was removed from the main event after failing to turn up to two press conferences this week.
