The title fight between GSP and Nick Diaz won't be the only showcase for elite 170-pounders this fall in Las Vegas. A match between two of the best welterweights in the world has been set as "Natural Born Killer" Carlos Condit will take on BJ "The Prodigy" Penn at UFC 137.

The two hinted at the matchup on Twitter this last week. Condit, who is coming off a first-round KO of the Night victory over the previously-undefeated Dong Hyun Kim, tweeted to Penn on Monday that "The people have spoken @bjpenndotcom, they want to see us scrap, let's give em what they asked for."

about jon time, when meeting kos and the team, i was conversing with koscheck (at applebees) and out of no where jon fitch appears in the conversation circle...he says nothing, then leaves.within an hour he posted on facebook about how it irritates him that his fans dont notice him.this coupled with being the most boring fighter in the UFC, cross breed that with his refusal to fight another top contender who is on the same team...he might as well retire now and go down as the #2 best WW of all time.

Nothing is stacked anymore when 9 fighters pull off the main begining to be more interested in the prelims...

And BTW, I have ZERO interest in a Condit/Penn fight.....Makes no sense.

I'd rather watch grass grow than watch John Fitch fight.
