When BJ Penn and Jon Fitch fought to a draw at UFC 127 in Australia is was expected following the bout that the two would end up back in the cage to settle things and likely crown a new number one contender for the UFC Welterweight Title.
The bout was pegged for UFC 132 this summer but injuries forced the bout to be put a hold.
Penn and Fitch discussed the bout on Twitter this week, tweeting back and forth about a possible bout in October.
Enter UFC match maker Joe Silva, who nixed the bout, telling the two that he wasn_t interested in the bout and that the fans didn_t want to see it.
Question is, where do Fitch and Penn go from here?
