Nick Diaz Back In Against B.J. Penn At UFC 137 On October 29

The craziness continues. In a shocking turn of events, UFC president Dana White tweeted the following on Thursday evening.

“This is crazy but here we go again! You wanted it so you got it. Penn vs Diaz Oct 27th in Vegas”

B.J. Penn was quick to take to Twitter himself, as he soon thereafter tweeted the following.

“Me and Nick Diaz!! OCT. 29th”

There you have it. Nick Diaz's odd behavior has resulted in a flip-flop of the original main and co-main events for UFC 137. UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre will defend against Carlos Condit in the main event, and Nick Diaz will make his UFC return against top-ranked B.J. Penn in the co-main event.

UFC 137 emanates from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada on October 29, and also features an exciting heavyweight attraction of sorts, as Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic battles Ultimate Fighter season ten winner Roy “Big Country” Nelson.
