Rory MacDonald and BJ Penn Set to Fight?

| by

Rory MacDonald called out former UFC champion BJ Penn. 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 a loss to current UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit. He submitted Che Mills earlier this year at UFC 145.

Penn (16-8-2) retired after a loss to Nick Diaz last year, but has said he is considering a return to action if the right fight came about. He turned down Josh Koscheck's request for a bout.

The site said UFC 152 on September 22 from Toronto, Ontario, Canada would be the targeted date.
