BJ Penn, "They knew they were going to lose on September 22nd"

A recent Sherdog interview with UFC legend BJ Penn revealed his thoughts on why Rory MacDonald really pulled out of their fight. Shortly after Dana White made the announcement Rory Tweeted this picture and it started circulating like wildfire.

BJ’s immediate response was silence, but not long after hearing the news he suggested they meet in Rio instead of MacDonald’s home country of Canada. Now the fight will happen in December at UFC on Fox 5 instead. Penn bluntly stated his thoughts on the true nature of MacDonald’s withdrawal.

“I know the reason why Rory pulled out on September 22nd. The cut is a detail but I know the reason why he pulled out is because he knew he wasn’t gonna win. If he let that cut heal, tried to train, whatever it was, whether he should have been in shape already… I’ve never heard of a guy pulling out of a fight 10 weeks early from a cut. Never in my life have I heard of a guy, 10 weeks before a fight, he got cut, he pulled out. You know what I mean? He feels he has to to what’s best for him, for his team, they’re gonna do that, but it’s 100 percent fact that the reason why they pulled out is because they knew they were gonna lose on September 22nd. If not, you wouldn’t pull out, you would go.

Like I said, I had a cut on my eye, 13 stitches inside and out five weeks before the Diaz fight. Didn’t care. Opened up from eight weeks every week all the way up to the fifth week before the Diaz fight but did I ever think about pulling out? Not even once.”

    Sure baby j sure.

    • Bob says:

      Dumb fuck 10 weeks before a fight and he cries over a little faggot ass cut?? Thats not even a real injury and 10 weeks is way more then enough time to heal.. ACL injury is a real injury not no damn cut 10 long weeks before the fight begins.. It was an excuse not to fight and very obvious. Maybe because of the steroids or maybe because he wasnt ready but one things for sure, he didnt want to fight B.J any more and dont blame that little gay ass cut for the real reason for him opting out.

      • DARTHVADER says:

        sure buddy. Are you a fighter? Do you know how long it takes for the cut to heal? Just bc baby j said he had a cut b4 the diaz fight doesnt mean its true. Helll its rory’s 1st shot at a legitimate contender why wouldnt he want a full training camp? you guys are so blind when it comes to your boy baby j.

        • Chris says:

          I’m in the wound injury and 10 weeks is way long to let a cut heal no matter how many stitches he got … I mean seriously it’s not gonna matter because the skin there will never be the same it will alway be thin with scar tissue … So rory is just buying time for something ..

        • bunkylomax says:

          Im a nurse and cuts that require stiches heal in a couple of weeks..at the minimum he could’ve fought at Rio

        • Bob says:

          I use to fight and it doesnt take a fighter to know how fast cuts heal dumb shit. How am I being blind? I had stitches before and it fully heal in about 2 weeks and it was worse than this.

          Nobody is repeating what bj said and nobody is leaving any bias opinion, I am stating facts so know your shit before you open that dumb ass mouth.

          Hell you could of at least used google before responding and that could of saved everyone’s time replying to your dumb ass about this fake ass cut injury.

        • Jag says:

          It is and was true you dumbass!! And no, not for 1 second did BJ think about pulling out!! You know why Darth Fader?? CUZ HE’S A REAL MAN!!! How dare you question a Man’s word in regards!?? You don’t even belong in this forum, go to some chat room with the girls guy!! It’s people like you who disgrace men! Go home cook rice!

        • DARTHVADER says:

          BOB AND JAG..
          YOU TWO HAVE TO BE THE SAME PEOPLE. FUCKING LAME ASS THIRD GRADE ATTACKS. GO CONTINUE TO KISS BJ’S ASS.

          IF HE THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO LOSE THE FIGHT THEN WHY WOULD HE ACCEPT THE FIGHT A FEW WEEKS DOWN THE ROAD AGAIN? IF HE IS TRAINING FOR THE FIGHT HE CANT SPAR FOR A COUPLE WEEKS SO IT DOESNT KEEP GETTING REOPENED.

          I FOR ONE CANT WAIT FOR BJ TO RETIRE SO YOU HAWAIIAN ARSEHOLES CAN STFU ALREADY.

          BJ WILL LOSE THIS FIGHT JUST LIKE HE DOES AGAINST ALL THE BIGGER GUYS HE FIGHTS. i SO CANT WAIT FOR THIS FIGHT TO HAPPEN SO ALL YOU FAGGOTS ON HERE CAN CRY ABOUT HOW RORY CHEATED, AND BJ WASNT MOTIVATED AND RORY GREASED, RORY WAS ON ROIDS, BLAH BLAH BLAH FUCKING BLAH.

          ALL OF YOU ARE FUNNY..

        • Bob says:

          @ Darthvader

          I didnt even bother reading that gay ass novel you wrote. It seems like someone is mad?

          lmao.. It doesnt take 10 weeks to heal that little gay ass cut dumb fuck..

          The real question here is why do you even come on this website if you are not even a fan of BJ?
          You are a fucking troll.. Die now bitch! lmao

        • kalaeboi says:

          Darth Vader, where u stay? Tough guy

        • kekoa says:

        • DARTHVADER says:

          Kaleboi 20637 emerald pkwy Cleveland oh 44135.. u coming?

        • KissMyAssCoppers says:

          You’re a troll you know that? He did have a cut and posted a picture of it. Stop being a nuisance to this website.

      • gordob says:

        He was the one that called BJ out guy. You obviously don’t know anything about a cut that big in that spot. You can’t spar. Also if that opens up in a real fight they will stop the fight.

    • EP says:

      dude honestly would just shut the fuck up already you fucking piker. youre such an idiot its sad. what a loser. u come on Bjs website every day to spew out total garbage and nonsense and talk shit about him …. youre such a loser. its absolutely pathetic. you have no clue about the sport of mma or the fighters… ur a waste of space on here…. go on GreaSPs or RoidHeads webpage and go on ur idiotic rants…. im sure all the douchebags on those sites might actually give 2 shits bc clearly no one cares about u or ur BS rants on here. Get a life , and get lost, piker.

    • Ahuna says:

      • IP MAN says:

        2 time golden gloves champ,degree in mechanical engineer,serve 10 years USMC,so.fuck you and fuck your fake idol Bjpenn

        • don says:

          if educated the way you say you are, and a USMC, you are embarrassing yourself with your comments and needing to divulge your credentials. it’s no surprise that the military has the internal issues it does with individuals like you armed with a fire arm.

        • kekoa says:

          2x golden champ 10 years USMC. BLAH BLAH

          BJ PENN:
          -First ever non american to win black belt division at the world, with in three years of his black belt he achieved.
          -champ in two weight classes
          only 155 to fight at light heavy weight, against Lyoto Machida!
          -went to virginia to train NAVY SEALS!!! NOT USMC. ha
          I could go on and on little engineer. sharpen your pencil and stay behind your desk. FAGGOT!

        • How is he not american? lol

        • ctyn says:

          obviously you no learn speaky english good in your mechanical engineering program.

        • Charlie says:

          What was your MOS?

        • Ghostwheel says:

          “Ip Man”, you’re full of shit. You type like a 10-year old. I’d box your eyes out and BJ Penn would cave your fucking face in. I bet you’re some stupid fat kid with no life and no friends, so you go on the internet and do stuff like, well, this? Trolling on an MMA legend’s webpage? Really? Link me to your site or some REAL videos of you boxing in a Golden Gloves tournament. Fat virgin loser. Why don’t you take your fabricated tough guy internet persona to Rory’s site and jack off to his droopy eye.

        • mj says:

          You´re a slack back wannabe. Next time shoot higher bud. Why not say you were doing SS with CIA sat then spent time inside camp justice with the 56th brig pulling teeth, when not doing DA door kicking. 10 years USMC…. tell us about Zad now? You´re no Opman, no Marine and probably not even American.

    • wtf? and who the fuck are you? shut your bitchass up and GTFO!

    • that guy says:

      most overrated? shut the fuck up.

    • Bjj4life says:

      Ip man I’m gonna beat the s*** out of u .

    • BJ is KING says:

      Breathe kid, if you are typing like that I’d hate to think how much you are choking IRL. BJ might not beat Rory but hes got pride and heart, and Rory is just a little shit who needs to learn some respect, and get some dignity (pulls out of a fight a few days after troubles with the drug tests yet doesnt even put his samples forward. Class act roidy, class act).

    • Null says:

      This made me laugh.

      You sir have a mental disorder or are just trying to troll. While Penn might be past his prime, he has some wins in him, especially from up and comers who don’t have the level of experience Penn has.

      Tool

    • Hiiipower716 says:

      Dont sleep on penn…he is a future hof

    • Jag says:

      LET ME JUST SAY THIS.1) YOU NEED A DR SON!! 2) THEY HAVE MED’S FOR YOUR CONDITION AND IT’S CALLED RITALLIN! 3) I’VE BEEN IN THIS CAMP & I DON’T CARE WHAT ANYONE SAYS, WITH MY OWN TWO EYES BJ IS SHARP AS A RAZOR! AND I PITY THE PHAKA WHO GETS IN THAT CAGE WIT MY BRADDAH-ANIMAL ANIMAL ANIMAL & NO MERCY!!!! THIS TEAM & BJ IS NOT GOING TO DO ANYTHING BUT TRAIN FOR THE WIN & TRUST ME, BJ IS SO FLIPPIN AMPED AND THAT HUMBLE BJ WE ALL KNOW LEAVES HIS BODY HERE ON OUT WHEN IT BECOMES FIGHT NIGHT!!

    • ballsackface says:

      just SHIT the fuck up LOL

  3. lex walker says:

    I agree with b, it should of been healed in 10 weeks no excuses

    • B-rad says:

      Cuts are risky busisness though, not makin excuses for Pizza back or anything but iv gotten cuts in training before and it fucking sucks! Its like someone is pressing down as hard as possible on a big ass bruise. But if the cut is bad enough then it is very easy to open up again and someone as young as Rory, i dont really blame him for rescheduling, should be in October tho no need for 3 more months IMO

  4. B-rad says:

    If you got a cut bad enough to require 13 stitches roughly a month before the fight, probalby should have rescheduled that one.. But for some guys, if they can walk to the cage then they will still take the fight!

  5. Random says:

    Ip man your dumb!..your comment is overrated..look at what Penn accomplished past n present you stupid boy.u should have a seat with chael and learn from the real champs

  6. Kong says:

    I hope bj splits rorys head

  7. tee says:

    Can’t believe losers join a would join sonebody site just to bash them. Im sorry your life sucks so much

  8. Rob Brown says:

    STFU BJ.. Anyone who knows anything about MMA today knows that Rory is going to completely destroy you. You think what Nick Diaz did to you was bad.. lol. I can’t wait to see your lazy low life ass get carried out on a stretcher for your last UFC fight..

  9. Jason says:

    Rory is going to knock you out.

  10. Filthy Rotten Rousey says:

    This guy just can’t be respectful no matter how hard he tries. Perhaps you should have pulled out of the Diaz fight cause look what happened it was an embarrassment not only to yourself but also to your fans. Ya the first round went ok but after that it was the same old bj penn we all know and love. I’ll give you this, you can take a shit kicking, however if it was a five round fight you would have quit just like the gsp fight. Hopefully all the yes men in your corner are coming up with a list full of excuses for the beating you will receive, that’s what you pay them for right?? I sure hope it’s not for getting you in fighting condition because if so they should be fired.

  11. Xaninho says:

    BJ please stop talking smack and train. I don’t want to see another tri-star member give you the beating of your life. You are angering a beast and I really fear for your life. Hopefully you take it to pizzaback but I can see how this is going to go, getting thrown around for 3 rounds.

    • Kingron84 says:

      Seeing as how Fitch didn’t throw BJ around in their fight and he is probably the 2nd best wrestler in the division not sure how Rory is going to do it?

      Care to elaborate

      • Xaninho says:

        Seeing as how GSP pounded BJ for 3 rounds and GSP trains with Rory and Rory is arguably bigger than GSP, I’d say we can see a repeat of ufc 94. I hope not though because I love BJs, I give em all the time

  12. gouldx87 says:

    BJ dodged a bullet and doesnt even have the common sense to realize it. Rory is gonna pound the piss out of BJ

  13. Drew says:

    Ipman your a gutless ***** and darthvader is the bitch who was blown u while u wrote that piece of shit comment. go to http://www.tristarfags.com You two would fit right in

  14. Gabby J Yay says:

    Damn what’s with all the BJ hate and Roidy nuthuggery ? I understand if you don’t like a fighter but don’t come with insults that you wouldn’t say to his face. And no, you wouldn’t say it to his face.

  15. Mike says:

    I am a Penn fan and have always been one, but you people are crazy if you think he is going to steam roll Rory. Rory is well on his way to being the next big thing in mma. I personally think the only reason the betting odds started out the way they did is because Vegas knows there are suckers that will bet on Penn no matter what.

  16. Big J says:

    Does anyone know if they will continue with the Vada testing? All I ask is three things prior to their fight:
    1) Rory is fighting clean (I don’t want to see pizza back in their fight)
    2) Bj is pissed/motivated
    3) Bj is in shape

    May the best man win!

    • dartmotherfuckingvader says:

      why is it always bj motivated? bj in shape? Stop using that shit as an excuse. you guys sound like fucking tito ortiz…

      • Big J says:

        Are you that ignorant that you have to ask? Allow me to break it down for you; is a motivated person more likely to win or how about a person who comes into a fight in shape? Now that you know, transfer this logic for BJ Penn. If BJ Penn comes into the fight motivated and in shape, these are better chances for him to win. Now can you see the logic? These aren’t excuses, homie, I’m just stating what I would like to see. Is this making any sense, or do you need further clarification?

        I like how you didn’t mention anything about my number 1, what I would like to see….Rory being clean. You know as well as I do, homeboy is juicing up! This isn’t news though, the entire MMA community knows. Come on, now, where is his integrity?

  17. Jo says:

    This is why BJ is my favorite fighter.

  18. tristanpt27 says:

    Are you guys serious? You think Rory Macdonald is scared of Bj Penn? 1. Rory has GSP who’s beaten Bj in his camp to help him prepare. 2. Rory mouth raped the brother (Nate Diaz) of the guy who owned Bj (Nick Diaz).
    Oh yeah, he’s defffffiiiiinnnatttteeeellyyy scared…..

  19. rick james bioch says:

    So roids don’t heal cuts faster?

  20. Bob'O says:

    All junk talk. BJ will dismantle Rory and give the kid a lesson in the arts of The Prodigy.

    Experience is gonna be the factor. Rory is in trouble. ~Bob’O

  21. FTHISPLACEIMOUTTY says:

    F u F U.. FU.. Ur not cool.. Fu and im out!!! THIS PLACE IS WACK NOW…DUECES BITCHES

    AKA DARTHVADER AKA YOMOMMA

  22. Yo says:

    Yup,just like we thought,too bad we cannot have fans vs fans after the main event :) some of these guys deserve a beatdown in real life for backing up that clown Rory.Fucking panties

  23. kekoa says:

    the reason for it all is because he signed up for the VADA testing and he knew he couldnt get off his cycle in time so he cut himself…guarantee he been taking juice pimpled out fool

  24. maurice says:

    cardio or not. bj penn is a beast and one of the best fighters of all time. IF bj had cardio he would be the only person who can rival anderson silva’s dominance if not surpass it. i find it amazing that ppl think rory is going to destroy bj. if bj cardio looks like it did in his last 2 fights then there is a good chance he will beat rory 2 rounds to 1. maybe a draw. one things for sure, bj isnt going to just walk into the rory fight looking to lay down and not give a fight. ppl act as if bj cant even hang for five mins with rory. who the fuck is rory? only thing rory does impressive in my eyes is ground and pound, but with that said, i cant even name a single person he pounded out thats even close to penns level. since bj return to ww he has killed his greatest rival in under 30 seconds. he outwrestled fitch, which in turn stopped the ultimate lay n pray artist from gettin another title shot. and he outboxed diaz for 1 round b4 gettin dominated. basically wat im trying to say is bj has been in winning situations since his return to ww. bj is fired up and looking for a huge return. bj says a title shot isnt in his mind, but WE BJPENN FANS know bj is just trying to win this fight to get back in title contention.

    former ww champ, former lw champ, i think has more champion ship fights then non title fights. first non brazilian to win the bjj world championships. fighting from lw to hw all the while never being dropped or submitted. he and anderson are the best talents the sport has ever seen. i guess when you “dont train hard” accomplishing this type of shit is easy. hahahahahahahahaha.

    win, lose or draw, BJ PENN IS THE FUCKING MAN AND WILL BE REMEMBERED DECADES LATER, WHEN NAMES LIKE EDGAR, GSP, BONES, PACMAN (HAHAHA), FORREST ARE COMPLETELY FORGOTTON ABOUT. the haters are the greatest motivators!

  25. Mauimaffia says:

    Thats one ugly Avatar mother f****** LOL

  26. DMAC says:

    2x golden gloves lmao get real!!! YOU AIN’T SHIT but a hater! It kills me how a grade A loser takes the time to find a mans website and hate on him! Now if that isn’t bitch ass ***** shit I don’t know what is…

  27. Husky says:

    Maybe he pulled out because he knew he could not escape VADA and since bj tricked him he decided to shoot up. WOOPS then he just pumped himself with juice and was worried a random test was gonna come and expose him so he cut it off. Smart move Mr. Macdonald. Hey it’s possible guys.

  28. James Wolfe says:

    BJ I love you and will always be a big fan but please, you know how trash talking worked last time, remember against GSP? Come on, you know better, focus on training and being able to go all out for 3 rounds please. You are one of the greatest but your cardio and conditioning at times has been dreadful. No more talking man, just train, be ready, I hate GSP, the separatist bastard, but Rory is the real deal. Be ready and kick his ass then go after GSP and really destroy him. You can if you train hard enough. No more talking BJ, train, train, train…

  29. WrestlingRules says:

    I just can’t help but love Rory’s wrestling. He will buttfuck BJ and then he’ll come home to me and smear BJ’s poop on me.

  30. DARTHVADER says:

    I think trays all u dumb waste of space faggots fan say. You don’t know Emma. Your dumb. Get out of here. Why are u on his Website. I come on here to laugh at u fuckers for making excuses for Bj but then ccalling every other mma fighter a cheater bc they have work ethic. You all are fucking dumb go Fuck ur mom

  31. Kong says:

    Bj is gonna split that head anyway

  32. Trace says:

    you know I never understand why people go to a fighter’s blog that they don’t like and post dumb remarks on them. I think it’s hilarious if you don’t like BJ Penn why trouble yourself to come on the blog and talk stupid.

  33. Dick Diaz says:

    yeah buddy!!!
    WAR BJ!!!

  34. Some guy says:

    Rory was the one who called out BJ. I doubt he would have called him out if he “knew he was going to lose”.

  35. Yo says:

    BJ us true fans believe in you no matter what happpens,we believe in you,we aint here to judge you or tell you how to train,we here caause we saw what you about through thick and thin and we proud to say we BJ Penn fans no matter what,NO MATTER WHAT,we truly believe you can kick anybodies ass,str8 up,whoever you fight we there cheering you on,go get um CHAMP.
