Twitter Sparks UFC Welterweight Showdown

May 27, 2011 1 comment

With the recent “Twitter Challenge” as announced by Dana White, a surge in Twitters posts is obviously apparent in the MMA world. One that has caught the attention of many fans around the world was tweeted by former UFC champion, BJ Penn:
 
@jakeshieldsajj I would never challenge one of Cesar Gracie’s guys, but you’ve been calling me out for years.Let’s do it! I’ll contact Dana –
 @BJPennDotCom 

And the war of words ensued:
 
I’m a BJ fan but let’s get it on. Make the call RT @artoom23: Hell yeah! @bjpenndotcom just called out @jakeshieldsajj ! Let’s go!!!!!!!!!  – @jakeshieldsajj
@bjpenndotcom even better, let’s make it the first 5 round non-title fight – @jakeshieldsajj
@jakeshieldsajj If that makes you feel more confident….. sure. – @BJPennDotCom 

Could we see a welterweight showdown between these two fighters? Or is this simply a plot to receive a hefty $5,000 bonus from UFC President, Dana White?
