RUMOR: Carlos Condit To Replace Jon Fitch Against BJ Penn At UFC 132

The news broke earlier today that top ranked welterweight Jon Fitch has been forced out of his UFC 132 rematch against BJ Penn with a shoulder injury. Word is that Greg Jackson’s Carlos Condit will step up in competition and be Fitch’s replacement.

Condit is currently riding a three-fight win streak defeating the likes of Jake Ellenberger, Rory MacDonald and most recently a highlight reel knockout over British slugger Dan Hardy. Penn would be the toughest test to date for the former WEC welterweight champion.

Penn vs Condit would likely still serve as the events co-main event to a bantamweight title fight between champion Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber.
