Fitch vs. Penn 2, Sotiropoulos vs. Dunham lined up for UFC 132 on July 2ndPosted on March 17, 2011, 05:53 AM by Anton Gurevich
UFC.com reports that BJ Penn and Jon Fitch will go to war once again, this time at the "Fourth of July" card at UFC 132. The first encounter between the two took place only a few weeks ago at the Acer Arena in Sydney Australia (UFC 127), ending in a disappointing draw. Here's the report:
The welterweights first met in the main event of UFC 127, a number-one contender bout that ended in a draw. "Both fighters look to keep it out of the hands of the judges this time," said White.
Meanwhile, the UFC also announced that the top-ranked Lightweight contenders George Sotiropoulos and Evan Dunham will square off on the same card. Dunham lost two in a row (Sean Sherk and Melvin Guillard), while Sotirpoulos got his 7-fight winning streak cut by Dennis Siver at UFC 127.
UFC 132 will take place on July 2, at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. It's yet unclear whether the Fitch-Penn showdown will serve as the card's headliner.
