BJ Penn: Edgar doesn’t deserve rematch with Ben Henderson

“Honestly, I don’t think he should have. He could make the case for it. He gave me a rematch. He had to give Gray the rematch, because they had a draw. I’d like to see Benson Henderson fight Nate Diaz. Fight someone else.”

“I got the rematch, some people say it was a close fight or not. Frankie’s fight, I guess you could have made a case that he did well with Benson. But to me, I look at fights, I don’t know who took the guy down more. I don’t look at stuff like that. Who woke up in the morning and who was in more pain? I think Frankie Edgar was hurt the next morning. Benson told me he had his ‘stunner shades’ on. I think he probably got hurt more.”

Penn went to discuss a potential return to the Octagon.

“You know, I’m starting to warm up to the idea. I get this question asked a lot. I’m starting to warm up to the idea, but I’m not in a rush to jump into a eight, 12 week camp, at the moment. Besides that, I’m just hanging out, training and taking it easy. I go in the gym. I do some jiu-jitsu. I do some different stuff. I stay away from getting punched in the head, a little bit.”
