BJ Penn Says Rory Macdonald Got Him Motivated to Get in Shape For Their Fight
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 11.28.2012



BJ Penn recently spoke with MMAjunkie about his upcoming fight with Rory Macdonald at UFC on FOX 5 and more. Check out the highlights:

On Macdonald's disparaging tweets about Penn's physique: "That really lit a fire under my butt...We took my belly off. I think the best thing for me was the fight getting postponed."

On being pushed by Macdonald's rising reputation: "I realized I can't do this forever, so I might as well make the most of it. Everybody says he's going to be a champion soon, so ending up fighting somebody like Rory, it wasn't a tough decision."

On his fighting spirit: "Fighting is still not a sport for me. I don't know if I should be saying that on a conference call. Fighting is still a fight for me. It always has been. I'm not a great athlete that can play any sport. But one thing I could always do is fight back. This is a fight. This isn't putting a ball in a hole. This has always been a fight for me, and I just love it when it's that way. I love it when my opponent says that: He's fat, I'll end up killing him, he's nothing, this and that. It's all wonderful. I couldn't ask for anything more."
