Maybe, im not betting on it or anything I just think physically he is fine - its all on his mentality.

He will have no trouble handling Rory in the striking and grappling aspect of the fight unless(until?) he gases.
I guess if the two were the same size I would agree.... at least on the grappling aspect. I just think that Rory will be too big and too strong for BJ to do anything with. This will only expedite BJ's gassing and the fight will be over.

BJ has far to long relied on natural talent. He use to get away with it too... I'm just getting really sick of people saying "oh this guy better look out, no one can beat a motivated BJ Penn". The problem is a 'motivated BJ Penn' has barely ever existed... and in my humble opinion is thing of the past.

He likes fighting, but he apparently doesn't like training. The margin will only increase has he gets old and this new breed of fighter comes through.

These guys train non-stop. They fully embrace the complete life style. BJ needs to step away now before we can no longer wonder if the great BJ Penn would have beat this guy or that guy... unfortunately for BJ, we'll already know the answer.

I see Rory handling Penn, but I would love to be wrong.

To be fair, she probably weighs like 90lbs. So I doubt he even got a work out until later.

BJ's problem has always been that he lives in hawaii surrounded by yes men. It's impossible to be your best when you don't have training partners that push you and even more so when you live in a paradise where your family is already loaded.

Guys like GSP had 3 jobs and train every second they can just to survive, BJ never had those problems. He smokes pot and eats mcdonald's all the time while screwing around on the beach. The body is a chemical reaction and the balance just isn't there for BJ to be his best, he has the most raw talent of anyone I've ever seen, but that's only half the battle. Take away BJ's money, plop him in the middle of Canada in a gym with a bunch of contenders and he'd be wrecking people again. Rory Mac is going to retire BJ Penn just like Overeem retired Lesnar. One solid ass kicking by a big hungry contender will make him reconsider his career.

Dear Rory I am torn in the advice to give you here as I find you entertaining but it is not in your best interest to talk shit to BJ Penn. Lets be honest it usually does not work out well for those who motivate him. As a BJ fan though I am excited as **** that he is talking smack cause that seems to motivate BJ. And he isn't like Diaz who only started talking smack 2 days before the fight cause he knew what I am talking about.
