Matt Hughes Vs. BJ Penn 3 On Tap For UFC 123

Earlier today Matt Hughes made the following post on his official website:

“Finally, Dana called me yesterday and we had an interesting conversation about the November 20th UFC in Detroit. More news about that down the road.”

The interesting conversation must have been about a possible trilogy with BJ Penn because later today Ariel Helwani was able to confirm that at UFC 123, Matt Hughes and BJ Penn will meet for the third time.

Each fighter holds one win over the other with Penn defeating Hughes for the UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 46 on January 31st, 2004 with a first round submission and on September 23rd, 2006 Hughes handed Penn defeat with a third round drubbing at UFC 63
