I hope Penn can make this a scrap early on. One thing I don't like about BJ is his bottom game. For such a BJJ stud his guard game has looked average in MMA fights. When it should be the opposite because he isn't a guy that likes to go for TDs.

I still think on the feet Penn dots Rory up. But Rory won't look to trade much. And I don't see little Penn sweeping big ass Rory. This is a 145er vs. a 185er.

I hope and would love to see Penn pull this one out but sadly I don't think its gonna happen. MacDonald is on a role looks like he has no where to go but up at the moment, while Penn is more on the decline and hasn't shown the ability to handle top notch welterweights in a long time. Penn does often make a decent fight of it so I wouldn't be surprised to see him have his moments especially on the feet and early in the fight but eventually I think McDonald will over power and wear Penn down allowing him to control the fight winning a decision.

I can't bet against Penn knowing he is bringing in some true high level training partners.
Josh Thompson, Pat Healy, Tyrone Woodely and Ben Askren. About freaking time.

But am I the only one who thinks its weird Josh Thompson went to train with BJ considering Fitch had a tantrum and wouldn't let BJ go train at AKA.
