Bj took round 1 10-9, Fitch took round 2 10-9, Fitch took round 3 10-8. If anyone says that round 3 wasnt a 10-8 round then you are out your damn mind.

Fitch won and a REmatch he will win on the cards.

Yup, that's for sure. I was expecting Penn to use his speed & boxing as usual but instead he went for the clinch and manage to get Fitch down a couple times. What surprised me was how much trouble Fitch had trying to get himself off the fence to reverse or break the clinch and how well BJ was able to maintain his position there.

I'm not too sure about BJ conditioning though, when Fitch got him down in the 3rd round he wasn't able to explode and pop back to his feet the way he did in the first 2 rounds. A couple minutes into the 3rd round and he was looking pretty tired, he was just holding on and trying to defend himself instead of working to get Fitch off him. In the 2nd half of the round it was starting to look a lot like the one-sided beating that GSP dished out on him a couple years ago.

Props to BJ for admitting what his delusional fanboys seem to be refusing.


He lost. He lost like a man. Respect for the fight he put up. If he had actual work ethic like Fitch or GSP he could be one of the best ever but he doesnt and never will. Natural talent can take you so far but you also gotta work your ass off and seek out to train with the best.

BJ was bleeding and he had some swelling on his face, sure he didn't get knocked out but he didn't walk away unscratched.

Yeah, but Fitch had much better position in the third than he did in the first two rounds, and he used his size better. Fitch obviously had better cardio, but relative to some past performances, BJ was much better than before.

Bj definitely looked beaten after the fight, and said as much. Too bad in a way, he impressed me.

Anyone else think he made a big mistake too by trying that back mount? Fitch is really good on the ground, and bigger and stronger, as soon as Penn did it I thought, wow that is a mistake, he is going to turn over and be on top. I thought BJ might very well have given the fight away by allowing that to happen twice.

Penn didn't admit he lost? He said he didn't know what he would have done if he did lose, and that since it was a draw, he'd give Fitch a rematch..

I had Penn winning round 1 and round 2, and Fitch getting a 10-8 in round 3.
