Rory Macdonald Out Of UFC 152 Fight With B.J. Penn Due To Cut

It looks like all that will-they-won't-they nonsense surrounding B.J. Penn, Rory MacDonald and VADA sponsored drug testing was all for nothing. Dana White told the media at the UFC on Fox 4 post fight press conference that MacDonald suffered a very bad cut in training and has been forced out of the planned UFC 152 bout.

Here's the tweet from Ariel Helwani:

Unfortunate news as that was a very compelling fight to see exactly where Rory is in his overall development along with giving Penn a chance to prove that he can still compete against the young studs at welterweight in the UFC.

Joseph Benavidez vs. Demetrious Johnson remains the main event but Penn is the "big name" that is on the show to draw in the casual viewer.
