Shortly after he booted Nick Diaz from a title fight with UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre, UFC president Dana White told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that reporters would "flip out" if they knew whom he was putting opposite B.J. Penn, whose original opponent Carlos Condit was promoted to meet St-Pierre.

And considering the past 48 hours, White is not too far off the mark.

The UFC president today tweeted that Diaz (25-7 MMA, 6-4 UFC) has been re-booked to meet Penn (16-7-2 MMA, 12-6-2 UFC) in the co-main event of UFC 137, which takes place on Oct. 29 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

The fight should be sick, and I can't wait for the staredown in the middle of the cage

I like both these matchups better then the originals.

I'll do with B.J. on this. It will be a great fight tho. Both have good boxing and crazy BJJ. Diaz has the reach but IMO B.J. has the speed. It's a toss up really, I just have a feeling B.J. will pull it out

Man, 137 is an absolutely stacked card. It's not even funny.
