BJ Penn has been on a roll this past week. Here we see him calling out Georges St. Pierre in an interview he did with The Sun:
Fighting GSP is all I think about every day. A rematch would be very good and I’ll make sure that I will 100 per cent guarantee victory if we fight again…. I’d love to fight Matt Hughes again but I think he could walk away after his loss to St Pierre. If he does walk away from the sport, I wouldn’t be surprised after what happened the other night. Before his fight with Georges, I was really hoping I’d get another shot at Matt Hughes but after that fight, that was so embarrassing for him I don’t know how he’s going to rebound from that. I’d love to fight him again. If we can put the fight together somehow I’d love it but he’s also getting older so I don’t know what’s going to happen.”
Penn also threw in his two cents on Hughes verbal slam on Tim Sylvia in his autobiography:
Hughes is an a***hole. Tim Sylvia had his back the whole time Hughes was fighting me and he was so happy Matt beat me but now they know who Matt is. Me and Tim Sylvia aren’t friends in any way, shape or form but I’m not going to go and write a book about how he’s a cry baby, it wouldn’t make sense.
