Khabib Nurmagomedov and Evan Dunham line up to face UFC great B.J. Penn

USA TODAY Sports

No sooner did former UFC Light- and Welterweight champ B.J. Penn let it be known he was considering a return to the Octagon than two of the divisions young bloods, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Evan Dunham issued challenges to the ex-champ.

Only days after former UFC two division champ B.J. Penn put out the word that he was considering a return to the Lightweight division some of the divisions up-and-comers called him out. First up Khabib Nurmagomedov:

Nurmagomedov is coming off a win over Abel Trujillo that saw him shatter the UFC's record for take downs in a single bout (although our own Coach Mike Riordan doesn't like their definition of a take down.)

And then Evan Dunham, fresh off a controversial decision loss to Rafael dos Anjos, called out B.J. too:

What do you think? Who should get a shot at Penn?
