Newly crowned PFL champion Ray Cooper III has his eyes on the newest addition to promotion’s roster.
Rory MacDonald signed with the PFL two weeks ago. When asked at Tuesday’s post-fight news conference about MacDonald, Cooper (20-7-1 MMA, 7-2-1 PFL) said he’d like to fight him to get one back for fellow Hawaiian B.J. Penn.
MacDonald (21-6-1) beat Penn by unanimous decision in their 2012 meeting at UFC on FOX 5.
“He’s a veteran in the sport. He’s got a win over BJ Penn, one of my boys, and I’d like to get him back on that,” Cooper said. “If I fight him first, I’ll fight him first. I’ll fight him whenever. I’m ready for him.”
