Sports Illustrated’s Josh Gross seems to know who BJ Penn’s next opponent will likely be. Gross twitted that Frankie Edgar will “very likely” be Penn’s next opponent at UFC 112 in Abu Dhabi.
Hearing from several places Frankie Edgar is the front runner to fight BJ Penn in April. Nothing set in stone, but I’m told “very likely.”
Well just have to see how this plays out, Edgar (11-1) has been tearing through lightweights ever since he lost to Gray Maynard in 2008.
