Josh Koscheck claims he has agreed to a fight with BJ Penn and is awaiting a response from the multi-weight champion.

Penn has not fought since losing to Nick Diaz last October and has given no indication that he is ready to step back into the Octagon.

UFC president Dana White is keen to get Penn back in action and Koscheck claims he has been offered the fight.

"UFC just offered me to fight BJ Penn…I said YES!!!!! Just waiting on him!!!!!!" Koscheck tweeted.

Like Penn, Koscheck's most recent fight ended in defeat - a controversial loss to Johny Hendricks. If a fight is arranged, it is likely to be at welterweight.
