BJ Penn Ready To Show Tri-Star Gym That Georges St-Pierre Loss Was A “Fluke”

Former two-division UFC champion, BJ Penn gives some insight on why he decided to come out of retirement to face Rory MacDonald at UFC 152 in September, and unsurprisingly it has something to do with a former loss in his professional career.

Penn, speaking via Fighters Only Magazine, said:

“It would be nice to let them know it was a fluke. The fight [with Macdonald] is not going to go down the same way. Rory is not just going to walk in there and take me out and beat me up for four rounds straight and end up putting me away. I really believe that the fight is going to go different and they are going to realize that when we start fighting. This isn’t the same guy they fought that night and this is going to be a whole different thing.”

“Besides that there is no bad blood. I see Firas all the time, I see Georges. Everything is in the past. I’d like to get out there show TriStar gym and their fans [that] I’m a worthy opponent. I’m not just a guy that’s going to walk in the ring and somebody’s just gonna walk across the other side and walk across and crush me. That’s not gonna be the story.”
