MacDonald earns dominant decision over Penn

Saturday, December 08, 2012

B.J. Penn’s struggles at welterweight continued, and the division may have seen the continuation of a changing of the guard.

Rory MacDonald spent 15 minutes beating up Penn, a former two-division champion and likely future UFC Hall of Famer, and cruised to a unanimous decision victory with a pair of 30-26 scores and a 30-27. Then he called out the only man who has beaten him.

The welterweight bout opened up the main card of Saturday’s UFC on FOX 5 event at Seattle’s KeyArena. It aired on FOX following prelims on FX and Facebook.

“There’s a guy that humiliated me a couple years ago, and I want my revenge,” MacDonald said. “Carlos Condit, I want a rematch. Accept my challenge. Let’s do it in March – I’m going to get my revenge.”
