Take a look at the new thread I posted up with BJ's post fight interview with Ariel. He equate his reaction to that of Rampage vs Lyoto which is clearly understandable. I thought Fitch might have won the split as well.

That fight was for BJ to take. He was tired by the third.

One way to look at it. BJ knew 100% that Fitch would take him down and grind him out. So he flipped the script and said I'm going to take this head on and do the same thing to you even though I'm smaller. Like I said BJ knew he couldn't outmuscle him, outgrind em, but he could outsmart em. Swear I thought he was going to get the RNC. That's Dave Camarillo at work there.

Guess working with Matt Hughes paid off dividends.

Props to BJ for taking this fight. Whether you like or dislike him, he'll take on all comers in any weight division. I think the only two fights he wouldn't take are Brock Lesnar and Anderson Silva.

It will be cool to see who adjusts better in the rematch but, I'm afraid of the answer.

War BJ
Is it just me or is this gif like the funniest gif I have seen in a while. I laughed so hard when fitchs crew were mad and one of bjs guy is waving his arms around running behind them.

Anyways BJ fought an amazing fight he has nothing to be ashamed of he almost beat one of the best welterweight fighters and to some people he did but a draw is a draw. We know dana hates those.

BJ should have lost, I watched the fight again and I cant find any reason to call the fight a draw.

Bad judging has always been a issue but IMO it was glaring in this fight.

You can score the first and second rounds 10-10 but you cant give either round to BJ.

Plain and simple BJ did get a gift and Fitch should have won that fight.

This is the posterchild for why we either need to have five round fights or change the judging criteria. The ten point must system is not a effective system for three round fights.

Jesus, look at the freaking size difference in that GIF. Fitch looks like he's multiple weight classes above Penn. Well, in reality, Penn is a small LW and could easily fight at 145 so I suppose that is somewhat true, but man, Penn is such a warrior.
