Verbal agreements are in place to see WW Rory MacDonald vs BJ Penn at UFC 152, September 22nd in Toronto.
I want BJ to fight at LW again but if this is what it takes for him to come back, so be it. BJ is too small and I don't think this fight will go too well for him but I'm looking forward to seeing two of my favourite fighters go at it.
BJ is a top 10 WW, I think it's a bit silly to write the fight off as "not competitive".
I'm going to preface this by saying I'm a big BJ Penn fan.
He isn't a top ten WW, I don't know how anybody could rank him at all. The last fight at 170 he won was against a shot Matt Hughes, before that...he hadn't won a fight at 170 in the UFC since 2004. And when it's not competitive, we'll see how you feel about that. I have minimal interest in seeing one of my favorite fighters get beaten half to death in a fight that's going to be sold as a really competitive bout.
