There are only a handful of UFC welterweights not currently booked and even less still that are high enough on the totem pole to step in for such a high profile match-up.
"It would be an honor to fight a legend like BJ Penn, one of my favorite fighters ever. If the call comes, I would take the fight in a second."
While fight fans salivate at the potential jaw-breaking nature of a fight between "The Prodigy" and "The Natural Born Killer," the Greg Jackson product is also making it clear he's not unopposed to the idea of fighting one of his teammates.
"As far as fighting Diego, me and him are teammates and training partners. If it was a title fight, like a very, very big fight, we could put friendship and everything aside, and go scrap. But unless it’s something like that, we’d probably try to avoid it."
Of course, if Condit is thrown into the Penn fight, that would mean the possibility of a bout against his teammate would have to wait. But at least we know the potential is there.
Oh, the tangled web we weave, Maniacs.
