It appears Carlos Condit and B.J. Penn are on a collision course for a bout in October.

The power of social networking was at work on Monday with messages being exchanged back and forth between Condit, Penn and fellow top ten welterweight Jon Fitch.

When it was all said and done Condit issued a challenge to Penn, and he promptly accepted and now the UFC is on board as well.

“The people have spoken,” wrote Condit in a message to Penn. “They want to see us scrap, let’s give em’ what they asked for.”

I wouldn't mind seeing Condit pretend like he was fighting The Stun Gun and KO BJ with a flying knee.

I like this match up. I think Penn is tired of fighting wrestlers anyway.

Fitch vs condit seemed more sense
Fitch is gonna get the shaft again.

Condit vs penn will be in vegas likely which is good for me
Give me that or double title

I think fitch still fights in san jose. May be against rick story or brennamen

I like bj. But I hope condit wins so he gets his title shot

I was wanting Shields v Condit 2, but this fight peeks my interest. Penn has better stand up then shields and that's where Condit is most comfortable. Slugfest or ground war? Idk but its gonna be a good fight to watch regardless of where it ends up

It will be interesting to see Penn fight against a slower, though technical, striker with a large reach.

I would train knees if i was condit. Penn bobs and weaves alot, and Condit's legs are practically face high to begin with.

Condit will be tough on BJ. BJ needs to mix take downs with his stand-up and hope to hurt Condit with a punch then try and submit him.

Penn with TDs is the best way for him to win
