The proclaimed second coming of GSP (or better) indeed. Rory MacDonald has made it look easy as he takes out legend, BJ Penn . Fitting that a new Prodigy would take out the original epitome of the word.
It was a three round war with MacDonald handing out majority of the damage in the fight standing. Penn did show some shine in the fight, but as most MacDonalds fights turn, he out-ranks his opponent in all aspects.
Official: Rory MacDonald defeats BJ Penn via unanimous decision (30-26, 30-26, 30-27)
After the UFC on Fox display by MacDonald, it is hard to deny the young talent a top contention spot. The only issue with the current landscape is that the current champ is MacDonalds mentor and training partner, Georges St-Pierre. Both men have outright denied ever fighting each other, leaving the only solution being a weight change for one of the two men.
