Once again the judging was spot on. The fight was clearly a draw --> BJ takes R1 + R2 10-9, R3 goes to Fitch 10-8. Excellent judging as usual.

BJ said he thought he should've lost and that the judges (God) let him slide. Im not a martial arts expert, but judging from what i saw and what BJ said, Fitch should have won.

With that said, Fitch showed class when being interviewed.

It looks like age is finally catching up with BJ. If he does not get the quick KO, and it carries into the late rounds, he's done.

BJ said in the interivew (the one in this thread) that after having time to think about it, he had two good first rounds and thought the draw was the right call.

After losing 5 mins straight and being talked to 30 seconds after, obviosuly his mindset was thinking he had lost, but after thinking of the previous 2 rounds, he doesn't disagree with the call.

of course he would change his tune, after having time to rethink about the consequences of his reaction.

his first/initial reaction is the most honest.

Except he was just beat down for 5 minutes and that was the only thing on his mind when he answered the quesiton, after having time to think about it, he did win rounds 1 and 2, many think he did, and he does after looking back on the rounds, instead of only having that last round in his mind.

you have to admit.. usually the initial response is the most honest?

as for who won which round.. it's hard to tell.. i can't tell.. but i did see Fitch be the more active.. and it looked like Fitch out-worked Penn for the majority of the fight. As for the technical stuff, counter, attempts, etc.. im not even going to pretend..

If you just got done lying on your back taking shots for 5 minutes straight, get up right after and be interviewed about who you think won, your initial response is "I got my butt kicked". First response does not mean the right response, it's how he felt 30 seconds after being mauled for 5 rounds, who wouldn't feel that?

After having some time to get out of the mindset of the last round that he got beaten up, he was able to logically and reasonably look back at each round, and saw he won rounds 1 and 2, and now agrees with the draw.

You're mixing up honesty with how he felt after being beat up for 5 minutes straight.

i would agree if it was a new-comer.. but BJ is a veteran of the sport.. i think he knows when he won.

with that aside.. do you think BJ won or do you agree with the decision?

yep, if you control somebody against the cage and outstrike them by a wide margin, landing more power shots in the process for 3 min but you then get taken down and back mounted for 45 seconds only to reverse and finish strong on top for the last 2min.


you lose. apparently back mount is the be all, end all points grabbing move and if you have your arms anywhere near the opponents neck (which you should, considering its a damn back mount and theres nowhere else to really put your arms but seatbelt or RNC position) then thats considered "close to finishing it" even if you werent close at all.


so, in hindsight i will remember if somebody gets backmount in the future, the round is pretty much over.

New comer or not, if you get beat up for 5 minutes straight at the end, you are gassed, tired, can't get up fast, where as your opponent gets up, puts his arms in the air and runs around like he won, you're going to feel you lost until you can clear your head and think back to the previous rounds.

I do agree with the decison.
