I'm really hoping that he takes his "coming out of retirement" thing seriously and trains his ******* ass off

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

I don't get why he would deny Koscheck a few weeks ago but accept Rory's challenge so easily. He'd lose both fights but at least he'd lose to a big name if he fought Koscheck. Now he'll just be a stepping stone for an up and comer.

The problem with BJ is he's like a honey badger. He's always gonna be the smaller fighter even in LW...but he don't give a flying ****. Rory is one bad ass man/child. He's laid out his opponents in dominant fashion and even Condit for two rounds.

BJ should be picking his own fights not allowing his emotions/pride/ego get the best of em. If anything him accepting this fight should be a clear sign of respect for the young gun; Rory.

I think Rory is going to try to put away BJ within two rounds. Then BJ might retire again...sadly. On the flipside that might make him return back to LW. BJ should go down to FW and fight The Korean Zombie.

Why do I do this to myself? I'm just going to end up hurt again.

More seriously though, BJ does have a pretty big advantage in every aspect except for cardio and size, including a massive advantage in grappling. I'm not saying.... I'm just saying.
Rory is a much better wrestler then bj.

Rory's canadian, he trains with GSP and his wrestling based style is similar to GSP's.

I'm guessing he's taking the fight on Rory's GSP affiliations?

I am a big fan of Rory, but I love BJ and am hoping he wins this.
He didn't want to fight Kos ? so where is your anyone any time now ?

Me, too. It would make it an epic fight, IMO. Should be a good one no matter what, anyway. Can't wait!

I think this is one of those scenarios where you bet on Rory and cheer for B.J....

I see this being a 3 round ass whooping with round 1 being close.

But what happened to the BJ who went 5 rounds with Kenflo in a pretty high paced fight? The one who brutalized Diego Sanchez? He had no cardio issues there. I would love to see that BJ versus Rory. It would be a hell of a fight.

BJ Penn has really grown on me over the years and I want nothing more than to see him come in shape, motivated to put a hurt down on someone.

I also think BJ acts before he thinks (usually fighting at a disadvantage in WW with bigger and stronger guys).

The craziest thing he did was fight Lyoto Machida back in the day... that man has some balls.
