BJ is going to get crushed IMO, and Rory will probably get a title shot after this.

Yeah, not to excited about this fight.

I've accepted a few BJs in my time, but I'm not sure why you would feel the need to post about it on an MMA site...???

I saw that on bloodyelbow a few minutes ago. This is a great fight to see where Rory is at right now. If he can beat the piss out of Penn like he did with mills that will really make a statement.

With that being said I wish Lightweights were calling him out instead.

I think most lightweights know better.

I'm going to laugh out loud whenever BJ pulls off the upset.


However I will do the same whenever Rory whoops that ass also

An in-shape motivated Beej will.......still get his ass handed to him!

Rory is gonna stick that Canadian Leaf so far up Beej's ass he won't be able to jump off his little Niagara Falls in Heello.

Dog the bounty hunter needs to arrest Beej asap for being an "alleged" fighter......

This is the fight to test Macdonald's wrestling. Penn in the first round outwrestles Fitch. Penn at +200 or higher is a must bet.

Don't really know how to feel about this. I'm of course exstatic that BJ will probably fight again but I can't help but think that this just a case of using a legend, in the wrong weight class, at the wrong time of his career to build up the name of an up and comer. I'd pick BJ against just about anyone at 155 but MacDonald is a beast of a welterweight and hell of a fight to return to after a lay off. Hats off to Penn though, he never takes easy fights.


Get some BJ

I posted in the news thread before knowing we had a thread in here, so I'll put it here since discussions last longer in this forum
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------:

His 170 return still brings up questions as he's 1-1-1 and it's really not a bad list. How many WW's out there would've gone through Hughes/Fitch without a loss and then stood in the pocket and lasted 15 minutes with Diaz? It's not like he's had a final 3 fights like Liddell. He knocked out a HOF'er, fought to a draw with a perennial contender, and stood toe to toe with arguably the best boxer in his weight class, something the interim champ, who's an excellent striker, wouldn't attempt. Would Rory have done any better against those three? If his head is in the right place this fight could surprise, and if Rory wins no excuses.
