Rumor: BJ vs. Rory MacDonald taking place at UFC on FOX 5

Quote:
Aside from the naming of Lyoto Machida as the new Light Heavyweight contender, the other big news last Saturday was that Rory MacDonald was forced to pull out of his fight with B.J Penn scheduled for UFC 152. MacDonald suffered a major cut just over his eye that put his training on hold. There has been some speculation over this week over whether the fight would be scrapped altogether and which event would be best for rescheduling.

Tonight on MMA Uncensored, after addressing Jon Fitch's comments about Penn, Nate Quarry had a startling revelation:

Oh my God, talk about a ridiculous thing to say - calling B.J. Penn a "coward". We're talking about B.J., who was the Lightweight champion, who also fought Machida at Light Heavy weight, so he moved up 50 lbs. to fight Machida. Machida, who was undefeated at the time, just knocked out Rich Franklin, just knocked out Stephan Bonnar. B.J. Penn goes to fight him because he's a fighter. That's what he wants to do.

Fitch calling B.J. a "coward" is just Fitch trying to get the attention. Fitch trying to hype himself into another big fight, because the Rory MacDonald fight got postponed. And we have it on good authority, my insider has told me, that that fight has been set for the Fox card in December. So we're gonna get that fight.


If Quarry's source is correct, this fight is a huge gain for the UFC On Fox 5 card. One of the biggest complaints about the last two Fox cards was there definitive lack of star power. Although Penn's star has certainly dimmed during his most recent Welterweight run, he's still one of the most well known stars in the UFC. On top of that, a network appearance will shine a lot of light on Rory MacDonald as a rising prospect.

This would be nice. I'd really like to attend a live UFC... however this card has been really difficult to justify when you can already see it for free.

If this turns out to be right, good move for FOX. The last card kicked ass compared to some other FOX/FUEL cards in the past. Best place for this fight IMO.

December!? Wow, talk about over delaying. That's crazy. I hope the VADA testing continues from now until the fight happens.

Nate Quarry telling it like it is! (in relation to Fitch's comments)

The Machida fight is a great example of why you just have to love BJ Penn.

And the fact that he went the distance with the next #1 contender at LHW (After Hendo) speaks volume of what kind of fighter he is

According to the UFC website, the card is taking place in Minneapolis, Minnesota. At the Target center....

This is of course if the fight indeed gets moved to this card.

Great addition to that card but that's too long of a wait, these top guys needs to fight as often as possible. I know the injury delayed things but there should have been no reason not to have this fight on the Montreal card.
