Late last night Josh Koscheck announced via his Twitter account that he had been offered a fight with BJ Penn.
#UFC just offered me to fight BJ Penn…I said YES!!!!! Just waiting on him!!!!!! Let’s scrap bra?
Koscheck returned to action following a broken orbital bone at the hands of Georges St-Pierre and went on a two fight win streak. His last bout he lost to Johny Hendricks by Unanimous Decision. Koscheck definitely seemed stoked to welcome Penn back to the cage.
Penn hasn’t seen action inside the octagon since his loss to Nick Diaz at UFC 137 in October. Following the fight he said “I don’t want to go home looking like this.” He then posted a message to his fans on his website, “I want to thank all the fans for their love and support. I have decided to take some time off to enjoy life, train and teach. I will keep you guys posted with what’s next.”
Whether or not this fight will go down is a question that needs to be asked. Koscheck has accepted the fight and he is now just waiting for Penn’s response.
