BJ Penn looks to be in incredible shape for comeback fight vs. Rory MacDonald

SHARE

BJ Penn is one of MMA’s living legends, having fought many wars at a multitude of weight classes and held both the UFC Lightweight and Welterweight titles. However, he has never been known as a fighter that shows up to each bout in excellent shape. No one could ever deny the vast amount of talent he possesses, but his motivation is often in question. He is notorious for gassing out andvlosing a fight he could otherwise win. Apparently, this is not the case for his upcoming bout versus surging Welterweight Rory MacDonald at UFC on Fox 5. According to the video below from BJPenn.com, Penn is already in tip-top shape at 175 lbs., 2 weeks prior to the bout. This could mean that a truly motivated Penn will show up to face the young MacDonald, who challenged the elder Penn to a bout earlier this year. Will Penn be able to topple the momentum train that Ares is currently riding?

A huge fan of the sport since 1995, I love writing all aspects of the fight game. As Chief Editor of LowKick MMA, I strive to stay on the cutting edge of all things MMA related.

    the best cardio is just not enough to match the size difference.. i still pick bj

    This just in. Rory MacDonald is still bigger, stronger, faster, younger, and hungrier.

    I would like BJ Penn to win this fight though, he is not going to be around much longer, and a loss might really put an end to his career.

    Rory will be champ one day, he has plenty more glory days left. He can affor this loss.

      I like BJ, but I think that Rory is about to show the world what he can do.

    WTF was this video about?

      A motivated BJ penn?

      If you look closely by his feet he is playing dance dance revolution

    I wouldn't say BJ is in incredible shape, just incredible shape for BJ.

    For all his recent fights, we've heard this is the 'new BJ' or even a return to the 'old BJ*. Maybe this time it's true, he's only 33. Some skills don't disappear as you get older…

    …but hand speed does, and BJ depends heavily on this. I think MacDonald is part of the new breed of fighters and will be too well rounded for Baby Jay.

      "I wouldn't say BJ is in incredible shape, just incredible shape for BJ."

      Exactly what I was thinking. It's not like he just went through some insane cardio workout here. It's not like he's incredibly ripped…he just doesn't have the usual belly fat.

    The problem with BJ Penn is he says is ready to kill and he is not joking, but after the losses he comes out with the unmotivated scapegoat excuses as usual.

    Probably the most talented guy, but the best at making excuses

      Tito could argue for the best excuse maker!

    If this was BJ going back to 155 I'd be damned excited but as it is he still isn't motivated enough to fight at his optimal weight, so I am left with my interested peaked but not much more then that.

    Funny, I was going to post a 21 second video of myself doing the same thing in my driveway, but I didn't think anyone would take it seriously. That aside, I don't think this video demonstrates much, proves even less and is probably not striking any fear into MacDonald. I think BJ should go back to running underwater with rocks. Now, that was scary.

      OK, MMA Truth, you're staring to sound a little bit snotty…..

      • http://lowkickmma.com/author/BrianCox Brian Cox

        I didn't know I was making sounds. I thought I was writing opinions.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/highkick12 highkick12

    With a warm up like that how could Rory not be scared?

      Uncle Rico from Napoleon Dynamite had an excellent video of him throwing footballs, from what I heard he eventually did make it into the NFL..ironically while Kip was driving the Van over a piece of tupperware, it dislodged, striking him in the eye and thus ending his stellar career. Don't underestimate the power of social media like the videocamera, vcr, and cassette player.
