It was a three round dominating performance for Rory MacDonald en route to a unanimous decision victory against the legend B.J. Penn.
In the second round, it looked as if MacDonald would finish Penn with a body kick followed by some nice combinations. However, Penn was game to not let that happen. MacDonald later explained that he was trying to finish the fight, but was picking his punches and being precise rather than sloppy.
With that win, MacDonald moves on to 14-1 in his MMA career. Following the win he called out the man that holds that only blemish on his record, Carlos Condit.
UFC on FOX 5 went down from the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington.
