“Oh my God, talk about a ridiculous thing to say – calling BJ Penn a ‘coward,'” Quarry said. “We’re talking about BJ, who was the lightweight champion, who also fought [Lyoto] Machida at light-heavyweight, so he moved up 50 lbs. to fight Machida. Machida, who was undefeated at the time, just knocked out Rich Franklin, just knocked out Stephan Bonnar. BJ Penn goes to fight him because he’s a fighter. That’s what he wants to do. … Fitch calling BJ a ‘coward’ is just Fitch trying to get attention. Fitch’s trying to hype himself into another big fight, because the Rory MacDonald fight got postponed. And we have it on good authority, my insider has told me, that the fight has been set for the Fox card in December. So we’re gonna get that fight.“
This past Thursday, former UFC fighter, Nate Quarry took to his hosting gig over on Spike TV’s “MMA Uncensored Live” to discuss the recent insults to BJ Penn thrown out by Jon Fitch. Towards the end of his rant, he leaked a bit of news linking the cancelled UFC 152 bout between Penn and MacDonald to UFC on FOX 5 rumored for early December.
Multiple media outlets have reported the bout is set, however, UFC officials remain silent on the topic and have yet to confirm or deny the supposed reschedule of the welterweight bout.
