12:14 PM ET 12.10 | UFC president Dana White believes B.J. Penn should retire after the two-time UFC champion lost via unanimous decision to Rory MacDonald at UFC on FOX 5. "B.J. will probably retire," he said. "I wouldn't mind seeing that. Rory looked better than he???s ever looked. You don't see body punches like that. B.J. is a warrior who doesn't give up. I've got so much respect for him. I'd like to see him retire. He's got plenty of money, he's got babies, (and) he has nothing to prove to anyone."

He needs to stop fighting big guys...if he fought in the proper weight class he could still be very good. Rory was probably close to 200lbs by fight time. BJ was 168lbs.

Good Point. That was exactly my thought watching him take a beating.

BJ - even though I deeply disagreed with your whining after the GSP fight, much respect to your great achievements. Talented and a champion.

Go out now and don't follow Mr. Liddell into chasing fool's gold.

A man should know his limitations....

And while Penn should pack it in, Trujillo looked like a main card candidate to me.
