Josh Koscheck: UFC offered me BJ Penn fight and I said YES! (Penn responds)

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Welterweight title challenger Josh Koscheck took to Twitter tonight and spilled the beans on the next fight he was offered by UFC Matchmaker Joe Silva ... none other than B.J. Penn. You know, the guy who is supposedly retired from the sport.

#UFC just offered me to fight BJ Penn...I said YES!!!!! Just waiting on him!!!!!! Let's scrap bra?

Koscheck was last in action this past May 5 at UFC on Fox 3: "Diaz vs. Miller" in New Jersey, where he lost a close decision to Johny Hendricks in the co-main event of the evening.

Penn, meanwhile, came up short as the main event headliner for UFC 137 back on Oct. 29, 2011, at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The unanimous decision win for Nick Diaz, which left Penn battered and bruised, sent him straight into an Interim title bout against Carlos Condit at UFC 143.

And sent "The Prodigy" straight into retirement.

Penn said he'll be back "if he ever feels it again," which could lead White to move forward with plans to bring his mixed martial arts (MMA) brand to Hawaii.

But is a fight against Koscheck big enough? And will it intrigue the Hawaiian enough to come out of hiding?

Don't be scared Hawaiian, take the fight.

EDIT: Penn's response is in page 3.

an unmotivated Penn would be beaten by Kos, if both come in fired up? would be a hell of a fight, but I'd still have Kos winning this one.

I don't know what a motivated or unmotivated Penn is anymore tbh.

Kos the wrestler would win no doubt, Kos the take you down in the 3rd rounds final minute would lose.

I say no, cuz this is the fight Kos needs to spark his career. His career is waning...

Why does BJ need this...he doesn't need this fight. He pretty much beat Fitch in my mind. Maia vs BJ would be very interesting.

PS: I really wonder if BJ can make it to 145...ahah.

Meh, something just doesn't massivly interest me about this fight. Think BJ would win a close decision with the better boxing. If Kos had a good gameplan and wrestled him a lot against the fence the first round or 2, then he would probably win.

Would rather see BJ come back and fight someone like Rory MacDonald at WW or Nate Diaz at LW.

Great fight if this happens. Kos is one of my favorites and Penn is always interesting to watch. I'd go with Kos on this one. I'd rather Penn go back to LW because maybe one day Edgar will stop holding the division hostage and there would be some new fights for Penn.
