NEWS: BJ Penn Says Rory MacDonald Knew He Was Going To Lose

Quote:
Former UFC Champ BJ Penn isn't pleased with Rory MacDonald pulling out of their UFC 151 bout due to a cut with 10 weeks to go before fight night.

Penn talked to Sherdog.com about MacDonald's decision earlier this week:

"I know the reason why Rory [MacDonald] pulled out on September 22nd. The cut is a detail but I know the reason why he pulled out is because he knew he wasn't gonna win. If he let that cut heal, tried to train, whatever it was, whether he should have been in shape already... I've never heard of a guy pulling out of a fight 10 weeks early from a cut. Never in my life have I heard of a guy, 10 weeks before a fight, he got cut, he pulled out. You know what I mean? He feels he has to to what's best for him, for his team, they're gonna do that, but it's 100 percent fact that the reason why they pulled out is because they knew they were gonna lose on September 22nd. If not, you wouldn't pull out, you would go.

Like I said, I had a cut on my eye, 13 stitches inside and out five weeks before the Diaz fight. Didn't care. Opened up from eight weeks every week all the way up to the fifth week before the Diaz fight but did I ever think about pulling out? Not even once. "

You're damn right he was scared. The vaseline ruling have thrown a monkeywrench in the Jackson/TriStar camp plans. Time for the brat Rory to get what is coming to him. WAR BJ!!

Not a fan of BJ but it's hard to disagree with him here.

Really? It's hard to disagree with him pulling out of a fight because he had 40 stitches? 40 stitches isn't 'just a cut', it would take weeks to heal. I'm pretty sure the only person who thought BJ was going to win this fight was BJ, and possibly his mom, although I'm not even sure about her.

I can understand why all BJ does now is run his mouth though, it's pretty much all he is good for these days anyway. He has won a total of ONE fight in his last five, so actually, you know what, BJ is right. We should definitely defer to BJ's opinion on losing, he knows far more about it than Rory.

With 10 weeks out from the fight he had more than enough time to heal the cut and get in a full camp.

BS excuse in my opinion. 40 stitches or not. (looked more like 20 at the most)

He's right. It's a BS excuse totally. Bisping got his cut and hasn't pulled out of the Stann fight. Tons of fighters get cuts during training weeks out and don't pull out.

It's shady as hell.

When i read 'BJ News' I was hoping to see 'BJ OFFERED TO FIGHT JONES, JONES TURNED IT DOWN'

It's BJ being lazy. He hates training so he's pissed he wasted a few weeks training. Rory could have been in a plane crash as BJ would still be trashing him for delaying the fight.
