Each man has distinct strengths and shortcomings (and, incidentally, each has a unique relationship with welterweight overlord Georges St. Pierre). Fighters.com took every statistic and factoid into account, crunched the numbers and created this handy infographic as a predictive guide to this heated showdown.

Rory MacDonald vs BJ Penn – UFC on Fox 5
It turns out, by the way, that the Twitter name-calling might actually affect the outcome of the fight. During a recent media conference call, Penn admitted that being called fat by MacDonald “lit a fire under my butt,” inspiring him to drop from 40 percent body fat down to a lean 10 percent. Which leads us to wonder if MacDonald started using Proactive Solution for his pimples.
