Penn (16-8-2 MMA, 12-7-2 UFC), who returns to the cage after retiring 13 months ago, has MacDonald (13-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) to thank for his transformation from unmotivated couch potato to elite athlete.

The former UFC lightweight and welterweight champion, whose legacy has in part been defined by such changeovers, said he planned to "get into shape a little" and give it his best effort against MacDonald, who's widely been characterized as a future champion at 170 pounds.

But when the 23-year-old training partner of welterweight champ and former nemesis Georges St-Pierre made some disparaging tweets about his physique, Penn's mindset changed.

"That really lit a fire under my butt," he said.

Penn rose from the couch and hired the trainer that guided him to standout performances against Jens Pulver, Joe Stevenson and Sean Sherk.

"We took my belly off," he said. "I think the best thing for me was the fight getting postponed."

WWETopTeam - Twitter is a good form of motivation. It seems to have worked for Justin Bieber also.

That falsetto is incredible.

I think that Penn and Silva would be an interesting fight. Penn is big enough of a name for Silva to fight, still carries plenty of clout amongst fans, and can hype the shit out of a fight. Stylistically, I don't know how it would fair for him, but I could easily see Penn/Silva in the future.

bornop -  My god, could this be? The mythical "Motivated Penn" of lore returning to leave devastation in his wake? Or is this all bluster? Will Rory show Penn that no matter how motivated, his time has passed?

It's going to be a rough night for somebody. Phone Post

If Rory can beat "Motivated Penn" then I think he needs to be set up to fight "Broke Fitch"

The fact that there's any connection whatsoever between the headline and the content is a huge victory for UG news. You're being too hard on them.
