"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. "

I guess since BJ hasn't won a significant fight since 2009 he needs to do stuff like this.

 I can't believe Goku didn't make this thread. He'll probably duplicate it though.

I'm confused though, Rory pulled out because he knew he was gonna lose, so instead rescheduled it for a couple months later?

Rory called out bj so why the fu k would he backout???!!!!

Bj just sounds delusional, he could of been a goat at lw
His fans think he is goat at lw...

Truth is he never came close to his potential because he rarely fought well rounded

Now with stupid statements he says so often he is losing fans, and just sounds like sour grapes.

What he could of been usi g more bjj, Adding a KICKING game, That tremendous flexibility and great leg strength but no kicking game??!!

Rare offensive wrestling? Bj on top is scary

He could of done so much more

Easier to beat a guy when he is short, Just throws hands, And tires late. Thats 90% of how bj fights Phone Post

LOL! Might want to recalculate that one.

16 is roughly 62% of 26.

You can be attacked by a sword wielding maniac, and the sowed up cuts will be amply healed well before 10 weeks. I think this was more an issue of Rory not getting the proper preparational training, due to the cut, than the cut itself.

If BJ does what he says, like not eat junk food and stuff I feel like he will do fine. I don't care what anyone says, BJ Penn is a threat to anyone in the 155 or 170 division in the first two rounds.
