Picture Of BJ Penn And Nick Diaz Backstage After UFC 137

They may have been former team-mates and consider each other friends, but after a clash of heads during the UFC 137 weigh-ins on Friday and then punching lumps out of each other for three rounds tonight in Las Vegas you could be forgiven for thinking that BJ Penn and Nick Diaz aren’t on the best of terms anymore.

A picture shared by UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta following tonight’s show tells a different story however, with the two battle scarred warriors found hanging out in the locker-room. Penn was later taken to the hospital for precautionary reasons.

After their bout Diaz called out GSP to a title fight while Penn announced that he may be ready to hang up his gloves.

The two men each received a $75,000 bonus tonight for putting on the ‘Fight Of The Night’.
