BJ Penn angling for a rematch with Nick Diaz.

For those of you who aren't on Twitter (or are on Twitter but didn't catch this) check out the latest Tweet from BJ Penn:

. - Look how much bigger you are in this pic..I thought you were gonna scrap from the beginning homie? What was that coward fence holding strategy to tire out the smaller man? Street fighter my ass! I made you fight like glass jaw poser!
I'll be ready for that weak bs next time we fight!


It looks to me like BJ is hoping to get a shot at Diaz again after his interim title fight with Carlos Condit. The way I see it, this is BJ's last chance at owning UFC gold. There's no way he's getting a title shot at 155 while Frankie Edgar is at the top, and the same applies at 170 with Georges St-Pierre. With GSP out for the next year-ish, it opens the door for BJ to be at the top of 170 - if (big if) he can get a fight with and beat Nick Diaz. Trash-talking alone won't guarantee a title shot, but as Chael Sonnen and Nick Diaz showed, it can't hurt either.
