Penn vs. Florian This Summer?

At the moment it is a rumor, but there is the likelihood that B.J. Penn and Kenny Florian may lock up in the Octagon, according to Penn’s brother,  J.D. Penn and verified by Sherdog.com.  UFC president Dana White told multiple press outlets last week that Penn’s next title defense against florian could take place at UFC 99 in Cologne, Germany.

Florian also confirmed that June 13 is the likeliest date that a match between him and Penn would take place as July and August are filled up; according to Florian,

“I talked to my manager Joe Cavallaro today and [UFC matchmaker] Joe Silva told him June 13. That was the date they wanted because they wanted it to be the main event and the only main event. That’s what fight made the most amount of sense for June 13. July [11, UFC 100] apparently is backed up, so July’s probably out of the question, and August…”
