BJ Penn accepts Rory MacDonald's challenge,
 
Quote:

In speaking with the director of BJPENN.COM, and after contemplating the matchup and possible return to action with his advisors, BJ Penn issued the following response to Rory MacDonald…

“Rory, I accept your challenge!”

Now all that is left is to get the UFC on board and put “Penn” to paper.

The bout is proposed for the UFC’s return to Toronto, Ontario Canada on September 22 for UFC 152. No venue has been selected at this time.

BJ Penn will be a guest this Thursday on our very own “Just Scrap Radio” to discuss his return to action. Tune in on Thursday at 1 p.m. ET right here on BJPENN.COM.

Balls of steel.

Even though this likely ain't gonna end up well for BJ.

Badass. This all happened very quickly.

DJ Syko 06-05-2012 11:29 PM

ohh No! my favourite fighter is going to get his arse whooped again, please BJ just go to LW and just kick some ass before you retire for good.

Very very dumb move by B.J.

Bigger stronger fighers are his cryptonite.

He is NOT a WW.

Rory wins.

If BJ wants to fight and wants to train I don't think there is a fighter not named GSP in the WW or LW division that can beat him. Rory is a great fighter but he is not a specialist in anything and BJ is a beast no matter where the fight goes.

Good step up for rory though. this would be the perfect name to have on his resume.

You know, i use to believe that myself. Until the Fitch fight. First 2 rounds = bj out wrestled fitch BUT what made me question myself is how easily fitch got penn off his back. I remember thinking "BJ GOT HIS BACK!!! ITS OVER!!!" but no, never happened. BJ has fitch in his guard and he cant do anything. Infact, we havent seen any vintage BJ BJJ since the florian fight.

C'mon Tox you can't be serious... isn't his record around 2-3-1 as a WW?

Matter of fact the only WW fights I recall him ever winning were agains Hughes.. and he lost one of those too.. WWs are too strong for him..

BJ is always a beast in the first round.. he basically has 5 minutes to put him away or he is gonna get smashed on

Gotta love that he isn't afraid to take on any fight, regardless of ramifications (ahem Shogun). Not the brightest move, as I think LW is better for him. But hey, better for fight fans. Knew his retirement wouldn't last long, lol.

St.Paul Guy 06-05-2012 11:46 PM

Well I've already convinced myself that BJ will come to the fight motivated and ready to fight 3 rounds, then smash Rory and lick his blood off of his gloves.

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.
