Georges St-Pierre vs BJ Penn

Following Georges St-Pierre's win over Jon Fitch, Joe Rogan asked the question that was on everyone's mind, "Will you fight BJ Penn?" St-Pierre barely had time to answer before Penn showed up in the ring. The two looked each other over and St-Pierre confirmed that he is not a chicken and will fight all challengers. He was a little evasive and did not want to say outright that he wants to fight Penn next. However, a fight between the two makes too much sense not to happen.

St-Pierre does not have a contender to face at Welterweight. Matching him up with Penn will give the UFC a chance to develop someone in the ensuing months as a viable challenger at 170 lbs. It will also give them a match that UFC fans have been clamoring for since the first fight ended.
