I'm rooting for Penn but don't really want to see either guy against GSP again. Georges is too big for Baby Jay and too skilled for Fitch. Barring a lucky shot both bouts will be a repeat of the previous one.

Back on topic, Fitch will have BJ exhausted within a couple rounds and I see him finishing Penn early in the third.

If anyone would like to sig bet against Fitch finishing this fight let me know

I really don't see BJ subbing Fitch. Has he ever sub'd anyone off his back?

BJ could catch Fitch, but I doubt he puts him away. Fitch is one tough dude. He did pretty well with a versatile striker in Alves.

I see a decision win either way. I just thik Fitch has a better gas tank, is much bigger...hell he is bigger than GSP, and I see Fitch getting him down. BJ has good TDD, but it is overrated. Sure shrug off Diego Sanchez or Florian. He didn't shrug off GSP and Frankie got him down.

I don't like this fight much at all. Seems weird. Why put an exciting fighter in there with Fitch? Are they seriously going to push Penn-GSP III if he were to win? This card should of been free.

This fight gives me headache.

Im fan of BJ as a fighter and I dont like his attitude.
Im fan of Jonīs attitude and not him as a fighter.

I love how naturally untalented guy with great spirit makes it to the elite of one of the hardest sport, speaking of Jon of course.

I would rather see Fitch vs GSP than BJ vs GSP. He has better chance to win agains him than BJ. IMHO

I would love to see Fitch finish BJ. That would be statement.

Boy is this card the suck. Can't believe they didn't give it to us free.
We're getting Kampmann/Sanchez for free though. Guess it balances things out. I'd love to see another KO or suc for Penn, but yeah, going with the majority on this one. A LnP victory for the bigger WW Fitch is definately the most likely outcome. Shame. Come on Baby J, kill him!!!

Fitch is garbage. He's one of those gamers who runs the clock just to waste time because he's ahead on the score card. If it's super close it's understandable, but that's his game plan EVERY SINGLE FAWKING TIME. I hate that kind of garbage tactic. Finish your opponent already. You might say the same about GSP. At least GSP mixes it up and lands some pretty sweet combos and has some submission attempts.

The whole world will be watching for BJ to do what he does best. Get the back, sink in the hooks, and go for the RNC.
Dont even try to kid yourself when you say that Fitch is garbage just because you dont like him. It takes skill and heart to get ahead on the scorecard and then stay ahead for 10-15 minutes.

On topic.

1. Fitch's cardio is better he's going to outwork Bj all 3 rounds

2. Penn has trouble ko'ing people who have good chins, when he realises that Fitch has one he's going to try to sit there and jab his way all the way to a ud because thats all he has left

3. Fitch is the 1st 2nd best ud'er in the ufc he has single/double legs and clinch takedowns on top of being bigger and stronger then Penn, he's going to throw Penn's jab plan in the can with no problem.

Fitch isnt the same calibre of fighter as the likes of Penn or other great champions. He just doesnt have that X-factor, he was never destined to be a champion and he never will be one.

This isnt mike pierce, paulo thiago or diego sanchez fitch is fighting now, its BJ Penn, a different animal all together.

I think BJ is even going to go for take downs in this fight. His take down game and wrestling is under rated and under used, I think hes going to surprise a lot of people with it here.

He took frankie down 2/3 times, hes took a prime takanori gomi down with ease (who is a solid wrestler) or was.... he dumped florian on his ass like it was nothing. And he ALMOST took georgey boy down at one point.

Penn wins via being the superior fighter.

There is 0% chance that Fitch finishes Penn. Fitch couldn't finish my grandma. While I think logically this is Fitch's fight for some strange reason that convinces me that Penn is gonna lay a beat down. Logic says Fitch, my heart says Penn but either way I would rather watch BJ/GSP 3 than Fitch/GSP 2. That fight is completely unnecessary until Fitch proves he can do something besides take guys down and lead blanket them.
