BJ Penn at UFC 123

UFC 132 lost Jon Fitch last week when the former welterweight title contender dropped out of his scheduled fight against B.J. Penn due to injury.

Now the July 2 card has lost Penn as well.

The former lightweight and welterweight champion has been forced off the UFC 132 card with an undisclosed injury.

Sources close to the situation indicated Penn has ruled himself out of the July card due to an injury, which at this time has not be disclosed as to its severity. Penn’s removal from the card was first reported by MMAJunkie.com.

Fellow welterweight contender Carlos Condit had been vying for a shot at Penn on the July card, but sources speaking to MMAWeekly.com earlier in the week had indicated that the Hawaiian may not end up on the card at all.

Now it appears an injury is why.

Currently, the main event for UFC 132 will feature bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz against Urijah Faber, while the addition of middleweights Wanderlei Silva and Chris Leben could serve as a co-main event. With the show still several months away, more high profile bouts could be added to the card as well.
