View Full Version : Penn Withdraws from UFC 123 with shoulder injury

04-07-2011, 10:21 PM
An initial report from the Wrestling Observer, indicated BJ Penn had suffered an injury that could force him to pull himself off the July 2nd card. There were reports that BJ would undergoing a MRI. The results were apparently not good, as MMAFighting is now reporting that BJ is out with a shoulder problem, the same injury that sidelines Fitch.

Just one week after Jon Fitch pulled out of his UFC 132 rematch with BJ Penn, leaving the UFC looking for a new opponent for the Hawaiian great, Penn has now been forced out of the event as well.

Penn and Fitch both agreed to a rematch shortly after their UFC 127 main event fight in Australia finished in a draw.

It remains unclear if the UFC will try to set up the rematch when both are medically clear.

I hope they don't go back to the idea of a rematch.

Kos is still out. Condit vs Thiago Silva makes more sense...

Don't want or need to see a rematch, Fitch clearly won.

Looks like Condit vs. Stun Gun Kim will be in it's place:


I'm hoping it's a number one contender match.
