BJ Penn Discusses His UFC on FOX 5 Bout With Rory MacDonald
Posted by Larry Csonka on 12.06.2012



- BJ Penn recently spoke about his UFC on FOX 5 bout with Rory MacDonald at UFC on FOX 5.

On His Motivation For The Fight: "After you put over 10 years into something, you want to be remembered for it, right? Doesn't everybody here want to be remembered for what they were doing here today? So I don't think that's too much to look into. He's like me before. That's what I would say. I would say exactly what he said: 'He's fighting to be remembered, I'm fighting to hurt him.' That sounds like B.J. Penn a couple of years ago."

On His Weight For The Fight: "I normally walk around at 165 pounds, but I put on seven pounds of muscle for the fight."

OnTaking a Break From The Sport: "I walked away not only because of the Nick Diaz fight, but because of my last five fights," Penn said. "I had one win, three losses and a draw. I was like, 'Where's this going? What's the point?' But as I sit at home, and I train and do different things, and people come from around the world to train with me, I'm fine. I do well with everybody. Why not step in the ring again?"

On MacDonald Underestimating Him: "Yes, and I'm loving every second of it."
