That's why i'm waiting for him to pull out of this fight, as the fight gets closer to happening...and Rory will fight Koscheck or someone else with name value, who's available.

I think Rory is the future of the WW division, but he may have just put his plans a step or two back. I think Penn will beat Rory decisively. Also I won't throw around anything like "a motivated Penn" or the like. Penn will beat Rory.

Damnit BJ. Rory takes this handily by being stronger, more driven, and having better cardio. BJ is a LW and doesn't need to be playing around with these WW's any longer.

Wow, I didn't see that coming. I don't think this ends well for BJ, but I'll be cheering me arse off for him.

The Rory hype rain is out of control. If he beats a BJ Penn who should be fighting at LW and never comes to a fight in shape these days it will be his biggest win by far. His biggest win to date is against a LW in Nate Diaz.

I think Rory may win this fight, but hes not going to walk through BJ like many of you are suggesting.

Odds for this one will be interesting, I think Rory will be too much for Penn and this fight will put him on the map as a contender.

Despite what you think of Penn and which weight class he belongs in, he's a huge name and he will fight Rory at 170lb, if Rory wins it should not be downplayed.
