Default Re: After BJ Penn KOs or Submits Rory...

He reversed Penn twice while Penn had his back

MaCdonald is a solid wrestler, but his top game is nothing special, Condit may have an active guard but MaCdonald couldnt get much done against him in terms of control or damage, and he was in danger of being submitted, plus he was sweeped multiple times, Penn is a better all round grappler than MaCdonald, whilst MaCdonald may have a better conventional double leg, Penn has much much more in terms of attacking resilience
