BJ Penn (Pictured) cut his retirement short because he felt up-and-comer Rory MacDonald was the perfect test at this stage in his future UFC Hall of Fame career. If a tough challenge was what Penn was searching for, then he found it when “UFC on FOX: Henderson vs. Diaz” comes rolling around.
According to the Gambling Gods, Penn probably should have stayed retired. The powers that be have pegged the former multi-divisional champion a 2-to-1 underdog against MacDonald.
“Ares,” on the other hand, checks in as a 3-to-1 odds-on favorite to continue his ascent up the welterweight totem pole.
Will it be out with the old and in with the new on December 8th, or will Penn find a way to serve up an upset special?
The 170-pounders collide inside Key Arena in Seattle, Washington.
