Rory MacDonald recently called out former UFC champion BJ Penn, stating that a potential matchup would be “very exciting” for the you prospect. And, according to Penn’s own website, it would seem like “The Prodigy” has accepted.
“Rory, I accept your challenge,” Penn posted late Tuesday night.
MacDonald (13-1) has won three consecutive fights since suffering a loss to current UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit. He submitted Che Mills earlier this year at UFC 145.
Penn (16-8-2) seemingly retired after a loss to Nick Diaz last year, but has since stated that he would consider a return to action if the right fight came about. He turned down a recent request by Josh Koscheck for a bout.
The site said UFC 152 on September 22 from Toronto, Ontario, Canada would be the targeted date.
