New, 228 comments

Top welterweight prospect Rory MacDonald is planning on a breakout performance against BJ Penn on the main card of UFC on FOX 5 this Saturday night (Dec. 8, 2012) from the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington.

"I'm really happy to be here right now. My mindset? It's just focused on hurting him, destroying him, getting the job done. I don't put too much effort or focus into thinking about my opponent, I just prepared the best I could, focused on myself and I'm ready to go. I didn't get into this sport for fame or interviews or TV, I would still be doing this if there was no cameras. I really like mixed martial arts. It's the passion in my life at the moment. I think I'm going to annihilate him in every field"

Strong words from top Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight prospect Rory MacDonald, who faces one of the biggest tests of his young career when he steps into the cage against former two-time champion B.J. Penn on the main card of UFC on FOX 5 this Saturday night (Dec. 8, 2012) from the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington. Is "Ares" biting off more than he can chew? Or is he going to retire "The Prodigy" for good?
