Siyar Bahadurzada Wants BJ Penn, Doesn’t Care About Money

Siyar Bahadurzada knows that a win over former UFC champion BJ Penn would place him among elite company in MMA.

Bahadurzada recently posted on Twitter that he would be willing to step in and face Penn next month, and that he would even donate his entire fight purse to charity to do so.

Penn was slated to face Rory MacDonald, but the Canadian had to pull out after suffering a deep cut in training on his forehead. MacDonald is hoping to fight Penn later this year, but Bahadurzada wants “The Prodigy” now.

    I can’t see it happening,plus I can’t see siyar beating him,I know hes got skills but we really havent seen enough of him yet to think he can keep up with the legend that is bj,its cool that he’s willing to step up and donate his purse but I just dont see it happening,I think its more likely that we’ll finally see the rematch with fitch

      Nate’s still under suspension,plus it seems pointless since bj’s last fight was the loss to diaz
