UFC On Fox 5: Who takes it, Prodigy or Ares?

B.J. Penn and Rory MacDonald are set to square off on December 8th at UFC on Fox 5 in Seattle. Cast your vote on who you think will win.

B.J. Penn has the fire again. The 33 year old says he's more motivated than ever after seeing negative comments via social media, and after not seeing his name included among the greats as much as he once was. He's put together a collection of some of the best names to train with in a camp that resembles MMA's version of the Expendables. Jay Heiron, Tyron Woodley, Ben Askren, Josh Thomson, Pat Healy, and Tarec Saffiedine are just some of the names that have become Hilo regulars over the last several weeks to help Penn train for his bout with Rory MacDonald.

Ares has been training out of TriStar gym under the tutelage of Firas Zahabi. His main training partner is UFC welterweight champion, Georges St. Pierre, a man that Penn has been twice defeated by. Rory has an excellent wrestling base, which probably stands to reason why BJ has brought in so many great wrestlers to work with, but will it be enough for a "motivated" B.J. Penn?

Cast your vote to determine once and for all who our readers feel will win on December 8th.
