Zahabi: 99 Percent of Fighters Would Have Dropped from Strikes Penn Took

By Staff Jan 29, 2013
Trainer Firas Zahabi, on “Beatdown,” discussing Rory MacDonald’s win over B.J. Penn:

“[Penn] really was in the best shape of his life. I really believe it. He said he was this time, and I believe it. He looked like he was in incredible shape. He fought hard till the end. He took really bad body shots and came back. I was impressed. I was very impressed by B.J. Rory landed some devastating body strikes -- knees and punches and kicks. Most guys would have went down. I think 99 percent of guys would have went down and stayed down.”
