  Georges St. Pierre- B.J. Penn rematch on the works

gsp-bj-pennAnother explosive battle between welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre and B.J. Penn might take place next year, according to St. Pierre’s manager Shari Spencer.

In a recent radio interview, Spencer confirmed that a repeat encounter could happen on Jan. 31 in Las Vegas.

“That’s my understanding,” said Spencer. “I know [UFC President] Dana [White] has been announcing it publicly. We haven’t officially signed a bout agreement, but everything is pointing toward January 31 in Vegas against B.J. Penn.”

In March 2006 at UFC 58 USA Versus Canada, St. Pierre won via a split decision over Penn.  The 29-year-old Penn currently holds UFC’s lightweight championship belt and fans want to see these two fighters deliver classic octagon action.

Spencer confirmed news of the planned 170-pound title bout on the heels of intensive renegotiations with Zuffa LLC, parent company to the UFC, to retain St. Pierre’s services.

“We’ve been in long discussions with the UFC for several months,” said Spencer. “I am not at liberty to say anything right now. But there should be some news coming out regarding that very shortly.”

St. Pierre’s recent bout earned him a unanimous decision over Jon Fitch at UFC 87 Seek and Destroy last August 9. After that match, the Canadian fighter had one fight remaining on his contract with UFC. And there had been rumors the “Rush” might end up with opposing promotion, particularly Affliction Entertainment. Now that St. Pierre’s services had been retained by UFC the rumors have been dispelled.

BJ Penn is coming off a win over Sean Sherk, who was suspended from the UFC and lost the UFC lightweight title due to testing positive for anabolic steroids.  He denied using steroids and stuck to his story.  The anti-steroid BJ Penn slammed Sean Sherk for steroid use, but couldn’t go further.  He defeated Sean Sherk but didn’t defeat the rumor about Sherks’ steroid use.  Of course in MMA/UFC and every other sport, HGH is widely used because there is no test for it – and judging by BJ Penns’ big forehead, he’s a HGH lover!

  Robbie Lawler- Joey Villasenor possible rematch on EliteXC’s November card

Robbie Lawler (16-4) might not go ahead with his plan to take a personal time off from the cage for the remainder of the year. Following his win over Scott Smith in July, he  said he intended to take a break but now MMA fans will likely see “Ruthless” in action again as soon as November.

There have been reports that Lawler will face off again with Joey Villasenor (26-6) for EliteXC event slated for November 8. Same reports say the bout is “pretty much a done deal.” The card will broadcast on Showtime cable network.

EliteXC Vice-President Jared Shaw’s has hinted of the possible rematch with his recent interview.

“Joe [Villasenor] will definitely be appearing sometime in the fall,” Shaw said. “And he’s definitely in line for a world title shot.”

Villasenor is currently riding on a three-win streak but he still has to get his revenge on Lawler. Villasenor was knocked out by Lawler via a flying knee at PRIDE 32 Real Deal on October 2006. The 6-foot Albuquerque native says he’s looking forward for the chance to fight it out again with Lawler.

“[Lawler] caught me with his first right, he dazed me, and the rest is history,” Villasenor said. “Ever since that night I think about it and him all the time. … I would really like the opportunity to compete against him again.”

The opportunity to fight in his hometown has been lost when EliteXC’s card was cancelled. Said card was supposed to take place on Sept. 20 in New Mexico. But it looks like it’s a scenario of opportunity lost and opportunity gained for Villasenor as he has now the chance to grapple the title from Lawler.

The bout will be Lawler’s third title defense in less than six months. Lawler, currently WAMMA’s fifth-ranked middleweight, is holding on to the title with tenacity as this bout will be Lawler’s third title defense in less than six months. Lawler’s record now shows a five-bout winning streak.

Also a note, a lot of EliteXC athletes have tested positive for anabolic steroids, so don’t be suprised to see the november even full of steroid accusations.   MMA’s Antonio Silva disproves steroid use
