As suggested by MMAFriedRice on Twitter on September 10 2010, the fight between Matt Hughes and BJ Penn looks to go ahead at UFC 123 headlined by UFC Light Heavyweight standouts Lyoto Machida and Rampage Jackson. This will be their third meeting and with score currently 1 victory each with the most recent going to Matt Hughes via tko at UFC 63.
With Penn looking two rebound from back to back losses to current UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar, this will be Penn’s first return to the Welterweight Division since his failed attempt at re capturing the Welterweight Belt at UFC 94 against GSP. A victory for either fighter could propel them into the Welterweight Title mix. A loss for BJ could drastically affect Penn’s chance of going down as a future Hall of Famer and cause him to rethink his career. Hughes on the other hand is riding a 3 fight win streak with wins coming over Serra, Renzo Grazie and Ricardo Almeida.
Other notable fighters scheduled for the card include Joe Lauzon vs George Sotiropoulos, Nik Lentz vs Tyson Griffin and the return of Kario Parisyan vs Dennis Hallman who holds two submission victories over Matt Hughes.
