After being called out by Rory MacDonald on Monday’s “MMA Hour,” there was some question as to whether BJ Penn would respond to the challenge or stay retired. Tuesday night Penn had a response for the talented Canadian fighter via twitter “Rory, I accept your challenge!”
While there is no official bout agreement on the table right now, the UFC will likely act quickly to get a bout agreement in place.
With the UFC planning a September 22 return for Toronto, the bout makes a lot of sense to be on the UFC 152 fight card. The UFC currently has no fights booked for the card, but this bout could be the first.
