BREAKING: Matt Hughes vs BJ Penn III rumored for UFC 123 Showdown in Motown?

Matt Hughes vs BJ Penn III, oh yah! one of the best rivalries in MMA history may be setting its self up for a third and final showdown.
cagepotatoe has learned through a source close to the situation that discussions are underway between Matt Hughes,  BJ Penn and the UFC to set up a rubbermatch between the pair at UFC 123 on  November 20.
The event, which is scheduled for The Palace of Auburn Hills in the Detroit suburb of Auburn Hills, Michigan will feature a main card match-up between former UFC light heavyweight champions Lyoto Machida and Quinton Jackson.
We first learned of the possible match-up last week, and although we were unable to confirm with Hughes or Penn camps as of time of writing, both men have since confirmed that they could possibly compete in November, so it seems like the tip was legit and that the bout is in fact a plausibility.
