Former UFC champion BJ Penn is returning to the Octagon to face rising prospect Rory MacDonald at UFC 152 later this year. On Twitter, Penn requested that MacDonald join him in using VADA, an anti-doping agency, to test both fighters before they compete.
"VADA anti-doping has offered to sponsor our upcoming fight. I've accepted and invite you to help me clean up the sport," Penn posted. "VADA results will be released after the fight to ensure that the fight happens. Lets get started asap!!"
MacDonald wasted little time, replying back, "already worried BJ? honestly i think its a great idea 2, and i'm ready to do the testing for our fight as well."
UFC 152 is set to go down September 22 in MacDonald's backyard of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Penn included UFC president Dana White in on the Twitter conversation.
