B.J. Penn and Jon Fitch has just fought to a draw on UFC 127, and it looks like we are going to see a definite conclusion soon. The UFC has announced that the pair is set for an immediate rematch on UFC 132, happening on July 2nd. From

Reports of The Prodigy's retirement have been greatly exaggerated: Dana White confirmed today that BJ Penn and Jon Fitch have verbally agreed to rematch at UFC 132.

The welterweights first met in the main event of UFC 127, a number-one contender bout that ended in a draw. "Both fighters look to keep it out of the hands of the judges this time," said White.

Also announced for the card, Evan Dunham vs. George Sotiropoulos, two exciting lightweights that are both looking to get back on track for contention. The UFC first announced the match up on twitter:

Happy St. Patrick's Day. Happy Fourth of July, too, since @EvanDunham155 and @GeorgeSots are fighting at UFC 132

Here is how the UFC 132 card is shaping up:

- B.J. Penn vs. Jon Fitch

- Evan Dunham vs. George Sotiropoulos

- Melvin Guillard vs. Shane Roller

Hopefully its not the main event.

I don't know, don't want to see it. Penn doesn't look like he has the fire to win it and I think Fitch will win this time decisively.

Hopefully it's not main eventing.

Explode in anger or excitement as in sarcasm?

Fight wasn't that good last time and this time what makes me think it will be any different? Fitch will just come up with his same lame strategy but this time have better TD defense which will make it much lamer.

Anger with some sarcasm :)

I don't know I don't really care anymore at what Fitch does. Because I know no matter what he does Zuffa/UFC has the same feelings I and every fan do on Fitch and probably won't ever give him a title shot unless he gets huge sudden exposure one day.

If they make this fight a co-main for a huge fight then maybe they will give him a title shot but I know he can't beat GSP.

I think he for sure wins a rematch with Penn though. Penn had no fire at all against him nor at the end of the fight.
