There was a little confusion over why BJ Penn withdrew from UFC 132. Here he is in his own words explaining why. In short, he injured his shoulder, has to rest for 6-8 weeks, and then hopes to fight Jon Fitch if he’s ready. If not, he’ll fight someone else.
Meanwhile, Carlos Condit, who was lobbying to replace Jon Fitch and fight Penn at UFC 132, will face Dong Hyun Kim on the card instead.
