Rory MacDonald (Pictured) talked plenty of smack heading into Saturday’s shootout against BJ Penn, which caused Penn to challenge the youngster to back up his yack inside the cage at Thursday’s pre-fight presser.

BJ Penn is back, and he looks amazing. Anyone who’s seen his videos recently or recent photos has seen an amazingly chiseled and focused Penn.

In the fight business, there’s a cruel reality that athletes can turn old overnight. Well, in BJ Penn’s (Pictured) case, it took Rory MacDonald only 15 minutes to make the former two-divisional UFC champion look like he’s well beyond his prime.
If you were to ask UFC president Dana White, the 33-year-old needs to call it quits … again.
“BJ is a warrior,” White stated...
