B.J. Penn: 'On October 29, I will defeat Nick Diaz' at UFC 137

 
The controversial video clip of B.J. Penn reluctantly predicting the outcome of his welterweight fight against Nick Diaz at UFC 137 surfaces with highlights.

Penn, who was originally slated to collide with Carlos Condit in the co main event of the evening at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Oct. 29, 2011, has "a lot of respect" for the Stockton slugger. In fact, if he had his druthers, he probably would never step inside the cage with Diaz, who he has invited to training camps in the past to help him prepare for other opponents.

Accordingly, when the camera crew showed up to film the UFV 137 promotional video, Penn revealed that he was forced to say that he would "beat Nick Diaz."  That revelation irked UFC President Dana White, who released a video of his own, explaining his side of the story to demonstrate that Penn wasn't being completely genuine. 

Will Penn and Diaz put aside their mutual respect on Halloween weekend for 15 minutes and put on an exciting show or with the pair fail to live up to expectations?
