In the open letter, Lentz states that he will never fight at featherweight again, and that the bout would have to take place at lightweight. In addition, Letnz reveals that he will not be fighting Penn at UFC 197 in March, but rather on a schedule that he prefers.
‘The Carny’ concludes the letter with:
“You’re an unclaimed, busted-down suitcase on a dusty shelf in an abandoned bus-terminal. Accept my conditions, or rot in obscurity.”
