I think Rory will be too much for him but I don't think it will be his usual kind of fight where he takes his opponent down and just smashes them. I think it might resemble GSP-Penn 1 actually. Rory's striking defence isn't the best so I could see Penn stuffing his takedowns early on and lighting him up but Rory eventually getting takedowns with Penn being exhausted. Close decision win for MacDonald imo.

I hope Penn mauls Rory's face to ground beef.

BJ doesn't want an excuse he has said he hate cutting weight and feels better at WW and the guy wants a challenge. I said it before the effect of his opponents strength on his cardio has been an issue but the actual strength itself has not really presented any kind of problem for him.
I didn't realize BJ fought Edgar 10 years ago, I thought that was fairly recent. Huh. In any case, I was responding to the question "Why doesn't BJ fight stay at LW?" which is always followed by the statement or implication that he would be an unbeatable monster at LW. Since Penn has a number of losses to guys at least his size and possibly smaller I think it is clear that isn't true. He would still be very good obviously, just not THAT good.

Naw, I hafta' disagree. Calling a guy out is throwing down the gauntlet- it's daring a fighter to come face you, with the implied message that you're afraid if you don't.

Rory did the opposite of that, inasmuch as it's possible to do so when telling a reporter who he'd like to fight.

Until I see Aries pull some douche-y moves, I'll choose to give him the benefit of the doubt.

I think Rory may win this fight, but hes not going to walk through BJ like many of you are suggesting.
Not only does he walk through Penn after round 1. But he stops him via TKO.

I wish BJ would just go back to lightweight. He is a lightweight afterall.

Rory can ragdoll BJ, BJ isn't the type to run away, his TDD is good but he can still get taken down.

It's sad to think that if Rory runs through him and puts a beating on him, BJ will most likely retire for good. Hopefully if he does get a beatdown he will just go to lightweight.

There are exciting fights for him at lightweight, he can be a title contender again.

At welterweight I just find myself rooting for him as an underdog, the smaller guy who has to find a way to win before he gasses, it's exciting when he does it but it's just a sad story to see him gassed out with someone bigger beating on him.
