Gotta love BJ Penn … even if he says he’s gonna take a long break on one day, the next day he’ll be itching for another fight and then the next day he’ll be announcing when he’s returning: November. There’s two events that month, but since UFC 122 is in Germany and already slated to air on Spike, it’s pretty safe to assume BJ will be headed to Detroit for 123.

Who he fights is still TBA, but there’s currently not a whole lot of top guys available. Edgar and Maynard are set to face eachother. Tyson Griffin is fighting Nik Lentz for some reason. Clay Guida is hinting that he’ll fight Takanori Gomi. That leaves Kenny Florian (eugh), Joe Stevenson (heh), and Kurt Pellegrino (hmm).

Personally I’d just tell Guida tough luck about Gomi and give BJ the Fireball Kid fight. That, or make him fight the winner of the Jim Miller / Gleison Tibau fight next Wednesday. One way you get to see if Boxing Penn can stand with Gomi, and the other you get to see if Headcase Penn can give a shit about fighting lesser guys. Either way we’ll learn something interesting.
