Rory MacDonald Planning To Switch Up Training For Penn | UFC NEWS


It’s been tough [waiting for my injury to heal]. I’m ready to fight right away. I’m not one to sit on the sidelines. But it seems like I can’t stop getting injured in training. I’m going to make changes in how I prepare for fights and to do things my way from now on. It’s going to let me fight a lot more. I’m going to take fights on shorter notice. I’m learning from the older guys and see how they prepare for fights, like the two months of training camp. I’m tired of that. I’ll fight more often.”

“I’m feeling a lot better now. I’m able to do technique, hit pads and do conditioning. That brings up my spirits, rather than sitting on my ass. I’m putting what happened behind me and starting camp in two weeks.”

“I’ll still be training at Tristar. But I have to do things my way. At the end of the day, I’m the one getting in the cage and taking the risk and I’m the one making the final call.”

Scheduled to face BJ Penn on December’s UFC on FOX 5 main card, Rory MacDonald, as he tells it to FUEL TV, has apparently decided to switch up the way he prepares for battle in an attempt to stay injury free.

The young welterweight has had a string of injuries, and while he remains dominant in his division has only posted three victories in the past two-years due to multiple injury withdrawals.

The young Canadian also commented on the VADA testing he and Penn originally agreed to when they booked their first bout (cancelled) for UFC 152.

“Sure, [VADA testing] starts eight weeks out. You’ll have to ask my manager more about it.”

    Clark kent wannabe lookin motherf*cker! Bjs gonna f*ck your sh*t up!

  2. joe MAC says:

    he responds to VADA questions a lot like GSP responds to Anderson Silva questions… With deflection and avoidance. Placing it on his “managers”

  3. Rory looks like some kind of creepy serial killer.

  4. HENDO FAN21 says:

    See Rory when you get off the juice the injuries happen. Don’t say he doesn’t juice just look at the acme on his back.

  5. TheWholeTruth says:

    Rory? Yeah right. We all know thats you..Marilyn Manson. Stop playing.

  6. Rory Rory same ol story..

  7. Zack says:

    Bj better be ready for the lay n pray

  8. randomfan says:

    Too bad Rory keeps getting injured. he’s a talented young fighter. train hard, train smart, and have a great career ahead.. just not through penn of course.

    aloha

  9. brandon says:

    rory will destroy bj easily, probably just as bad as gsp did. bj was stupid to come out of retirement and take a fight with rory, and if he is thinking about making a title run he is delusional. rory will probably make him throw in the towel even quicker than he did when gsp beat his ass. bj said after the fight that gsp used vasiline, but why did he wait til the fight was over to say it, why didnt he make the ref aware during the fight, did he just realize it after the fact, i dont think so. after all the shit he talked i guess he had to come up some kind of excuse to keep from looking like a fool. i bet after rory beats he will use the steroid excuse no matter if he has been tested or not, if he dont all you bj fans will.

    • Mitch says:

      Rory will not make it out of this fight conscious. Unless he is as good as GSP on laying on people. Rory will think he can fight until he gets tagged, then he will try and take BJ down the rest of the fight. This isnt WWE, rory better take the beating like a man, steroids wont help this time.

    • EP says:

      hahahaha this fucking idiot @brandon Its too funny with all the piker fans on here… no knowledge of mma at all …. watch UFC 58 u fkn idiot…. Penn destroyed GSP and he had to get reconstructive facial surgery , Penn walks out of Octagon without a scratch on his fact goes to party and drink w fans and family … while GSP goes to hospital for surgery… but no, Penn lost that fight hahahahahah DO UR FKN HOMEWORK PIKERS!!!!!!! They are 1-1 in reality… gsp is only 2-0 on paper… any real mma fan who saw UFC 58 knows the deal Penn dismantled GreaSP. So shut ur mouth and go crawl back under the hole you can from… with that said, BJ is going to give rory bitch ass the beating of his life. Im 110% on that. There is no question or doubt in my mind.

      • daveyB says:

        Not only are you living in the past, you have a selective memory. You desperately want to believe that your soft, weak, out of breath, pork-stuffed, hammock snoozing, lazy-ass BJ has a chance against a destroyer like Rory. This isn’t 2005. Rory is not Pulver. The days of your out of shape hero running over people like Sherk and Stevenson are long gone. Talent without incredible conditioning doesn’t cut it anymore. BJ doesn’t have the burning desire to win nor the necessary discipline to be the best. Diaz, GSP, and Rory all have it. They stay in top shape ALL THE TIME. BJ can’t ever make it out of the first round without gasping for air…its embarrassing. The only way his daughter won’t see her father severely beaten and humiliated is if he doesn’t let her watch TV that night.

      • wowzers says:

        Actually ur the fucking idiot @EP….all the damage done to GSPs face that fight was from the first round…last 2 rounds Penn did shit, if you think otherwise you dont know shit.

        • EP says:

          hhahaha pipe down d-bag, ive seen the fight probably 20 times , which is prob 19 more than you …. so if YOU watch the fight again, although Grease St Pierre lay and prey’d BJ for last 2 Rounds… he literally did just that and ZERO let me say it again to get it thru ur thick dumb skull ZZZZEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO DAMAGE…. so with that said, maybe it is you the fkn idiot who needs to probably re-watch the fight again, u piker. Bc Penn did 110% enough damage in round 1 to at very least score a 10-8, so even in that case if u gave GSP the next 2 rounds, which i def wouldnt have, it would be a draw, however, i would saw for sure that round 1 was a 10-7 round for penn, and besides that GSP did no damage rest of fight, … PERIOD. God , this website is filled with gsp nuthuggers and piker fans, its unreal. TEAM PRODIGY , get on or get off. Pllenty of other websites for u pikers to go on ur anti bj rants and other meaningless bs.

        • daveyB says:

          The reason Rory keeps getting injured is because he pushes himself to the limit when he prepares for fights. Unlike lazy, undisciplined, Spam eating, no cardio BJ. BJ cried into the microphone that “I don’t want my daughter to see me like this” after the Diaz beating. I wonder what his lazy-ass, no prep, out of breath melon head willl say after Rory easily steamrolls him?

    • Nojoja71 says:

      You sure talk a lot of shit! I bet if BJ came up to you and called you out, you would fuc#in’ puss out! He’s in there scraping, win of lose he’s game! Come to Hilo if your as tough as you think you are! Or if your a poor, no $ scrub shut your pie hole! U faggot fuk!!

    • Nojoja71 says:

      Brandon, you sure talk a lot of shit! I bet if BJ came up to you and called you out, you would fuc#in’ puss out! He’s in there scraping, win of lose he’s game! Come to Hilo if your as tough as you think you are! Or if your a poor, no $ scrub shut your pie hole! U faggot fuk!!

      • daveyB says:

        Maybe if BJ was fighting Brandon he’d have a chance. Unfortunately, for BJ (and people like you), its not 2005, and he’s not fighting Big Daddy. This will be the second and PERMANENT retirement of your deconditioned hero.

    • duh says:

      except theres a video of gsp getting greased sooo…….. your retarded

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      So you think because a fighter who kows exactly when he will be tested and has 5 months to clean up and passes a steroid test means he’s clean. GROW UP. 90% of ALL MMA fighters are on PED’s. very few are clean. Also guy up top that said GSP slaughtered Penn needs to go watch the first GSP/Penn fight because BJ did all the damage put JUICER GSP in hospital. Whats funny is same people who act like GSP is so good for beating Penn 2nd fight don’t say a word about GSP having over 25lbs on Penn at fight time but then its the end of the world that A. Silva weighs in 12 lbs more than GSP. Ok for Pen to fight guys like Fitch who had 40lbs on him at fight time, Machida, but if the mighty GSP ever fought A Silva its not fair. Penn is by far the better P4P fighter than GSP or Fitch. both GSP and Fitch get theri asses kicked at MW or LHW

  10. The natural says:

    Wtf u cut a cutabove ur eye how does this stop ur training only thing it should stop is hard sparring unless u bullshitted about what ur injury is

  11. hen says:

    Dude this form is fucked up – Fire the admin and get a real IT guy to fix this shit.

    I go to post and some dude named “hen” and his email addy is left in the dialog box..

    fucking joke!

    • realist says:

      If Hen was left in the dialog box it is a cookie on your computer you dumb jackass. Blaming someone else for your stupidity is priceless. Youi or someone on that computer used that name and google auto fill saves it. Fuck Face

      • Zack says:

        Nope sorry buddy it happens to me all the time. I will have someone’s user name and email filled in already. Maybe if my phone was a public library your theory would be correct. Trying to correct someone else when you yourself are wrong is priceless. Jackass

      • Pkq says:

        Lol no that happens to me too. Calling someone out for something you know nothing about its priceless @realist
        This is a privacy issue bjpenn.com needs to fix, not every wants there email address public!

        • realist says:

          Pkq, you dont even know what were talking about because he said the name was already filled in, so how can it be his own email address? The form data where you enter your name comes from whats on your computer already type in a letter and any screen name you have ever used can show up, same with the email. They can’t make your browser fill that info in.

        • Xaninho says:

          No it actually shows someone else’s information. Happened to me a few times too.

  12. Tri-Star is lame says:

    This dude got a cut above his eye and pulled out of the most important fight of his career. This guy is going to get a reality check with BJ. Rory’s standup sucks and he will be exposed in this fight.

  13. realist says:

    He’s waiting til 8 weeks out to test? What a pussy you should be doing year round testing, anyone can cycle off for 2 months and already have the benefit

  14. Mik says:

    I already get the vibe that he is getting ready to fight GSP, even in interviews he’s like it’s not my job to give GSP tips thats for GSP’s coaches to do. Then he said we only train in the same gym, he’s not my trainer and I’m not his.

  15. A. Chung says:

    I think the reason why Rory is telling us that he has not started training is because he is now off the juice and he will not show up at the fight as cut as he was in his previous fights. He wants the public to think that the reason why he is not in the same shape as he was in his previous fights was due to lack of training time. PED allows fighters to train harder and without the juice Rory can not train as hard as he is accustom to.

  16. Drew says:

    This is going to be a good fight rorys gonna bring it and I really don’t think he’s going to back down at all if bj comes in tip top shape bj should be able to catch him in the first

  17. BJ is KING says:

    I whole heartily believe that he is on PEDs of some sort. The deflection and avoidance of questions has become ridiculous now. Give us a straight answer mate its either yes or no about the VADA testing. I thought it was too convenient before with the bachne but now I wouldn’t put it past the guy. Give him hell BJ.

  18. RowdyRodd says:

    He’s just prolonging the fight so, he could pass the roid test.

  19. Clay says:

    All you haters will love rory after the bj fight. The kids great. Stop being fake. Hypocrites.

  20. Bjj BB says:

    @ Clay, im sure preety much every1 that commented on this post has never pulled out of a fight due to a cut on the eye, avoids questions about vada……..ect, so how are they hating hypocrites?

  21. saiasaka says:

    WAR Penn; I hope you beat him. Actually I like how Rory fought but Penn is my favorite fighter…
    It’s like the diaz-penn fight, I like both of them, they’re entertaining, they bring it in every fight…
    An other match-up that I want to see is Nick Diaz – Rory MacDonald because of the “humiliation” of Nate Diaz by Rory; I would love to see Nick own him

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      Rory was so jacked up (JUICED UP) nate Diaz fight. Total disgrace. I think its funny how Rory calls out a retired natural lightweight but is too afraid to afarid to call out anyone his own weight class. Rory is just trying to score points with Tristar because everyone in world knows BJ Penn exposed GSP as a CHEAT Greaser and brought it to worlds attention about GSP’s career long STEROID USUAGE. This is what all about PERIOD. There are very few fighters who have used more illegal steroids in MMA than GSP. He has unlimited resourses to afford the Victor Conte non detectables all these years and the EPO’s and HGH that most fighters can’t afford. Keep in mind MMA doesn’t even test for HGH ANYWHERE. Also people often forget alot of GSP’s fights have been in Canada (NO TESTING) Besides NOONE or NO CHAMP fights less than GSP so without year round randon testing its quite easy to cycle on and off. GSP has not been tested in almost 2 years. Ask any fitnesss expert why someone like GSP at 31 yrs old and supposely self proffessed fitness guru in prerfect shape gets injured all the time. HELLLOOO its quite obvious why GSP always pulls abductors, and always tears ligamanest and says he’sinjured after fights that is exactly how steroids affects the body after years and years usuage. what happens is when fighter liek GSP was younger his muscles grew too fast and got too strong before the ligamants and tendons could catch up which causes all problems he has now staying healthy. I would bet my house GSP has been onsteroids off and on since he was late teens and probably more doing larger dosages of HGH, EPO’s, same stuff barry Bonds was doing sicne around 2004-5. I have been around athletes since 1970’s and can tell who’s using and who isn’t. I knew Sonnen was JUICING heavy before he tested positive or seen his massive acne. Rory macdonald was very obvious when hsi strength seemingly quadrupled over a few fight time and he for sure had massive ROID BACNE without any shadow doubt. Peopel seem to forget how big of anumber 90% is. that is 9 out of every 10 fighters is using PED’s in MMA. You damn near can name the non-users in UFC, OBVIOUSLY Penn doesn’t use, Both Diaz’s are 100% clean unless you are one of the RETARDS that consider POT a PED, Dominic Cruz, Melendez, JDS, Cain, Cormier, Shogun, Texiaera, are soem of the ones i’m pretty damn sure are clean.

  22. Xaninho says:

    So he’s sitting on his ass because of a cut above his eye? He can’t do any strength and conditioning?

    Does he use his eyebrows when he’s running? Does he use his eyebrows when he’s lifting weights?

    wtf is up with that?

  23. CombatRusse says:

    Just another strategie from Feraz Zahabi, trying to fool BJ Penn.
    I bet that they are working since months on Rory’s lay and pray strategie

    • 757 says:

      ^^ I have always been a fan of BJ. I don’t like Rory. I have to say that he won’t be laying and praying. Unfortunately for us he is a pretty talented kid. At this point in their careers he is going to smash BJ. If it’s a 5 rounder BJ will get stopped. If it’s a three rounder he is just going to get smashed for three and lose a lopsided decision. Hard truth my man.

      • Ironfist says:

        Agree,I think bj will get destroyed.i luv bj,he’s one of my favorite fighters ever but the truth hurts.and as much I wanna beleive that bj will win I just don’t think it’s gonna happen.

        • CombatRusse says:

          I hope (and think ) that you are wrong.
          The fight will be 3 rounds, (it isn’t even the co-main event)
          Concerning the fight, Rory, even if he is younger, isn’t faster then BJ in boxing, foot work, transitions, etc…
          On the ground, there is no way he can submit BJ.
          His only (and may be determinant) advantage is his strength and size, and of course the cardio (especially because he’s young).
          So if Penn trains smartly , with the good sparring partners (which I trust he will), he’ll get the win

  24. olopop yamadas mout says:

    /rory by better cardio.

    i would like to see bj get rory’s back, but then a pimple might pop into bj’s eyes, and ugh, getting pimple puss in your eyes, is no laughing matter…
