Immediate rematch in the works

Looks like the UFC isn’t even waiting long enough for Frankie to punch new holes in his belt before giving BJ Penn the opportunity to take it back.

Representatives in both fighters’ camps told on Tuesday that UFC officials have approached both sides to lock down a second bout between the lightweight fighters. No date or venue has been solidified yet. Edgar earned a unanimous decision over Penn at UFC 112 on April 10 in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E., to become the promotion’s lightweight champion.

Meanwhile, Frankie says August fights in Jersey or Boston might be too soon since he’s having a baby in June and doesn’t want a Baby Frankie getting in the way of a Baby Jay fight.
