Going to be a good fight.

Fitch will be overwhelmed striking, so he will auto go for the TD. This fight purely depends on if Fitch can get the TD early or not. If he can't get it early, he's going to get beat up standing until he can get it.

If Penn comes into the fight with very solid condition, he'll be able to stuff the TD for a good while. Penn has some of the best TDD in the world and it took GSP a round and a half to wear Penn out and get him down, and Penn wasn't in good shape at all. Penn comes in good condition = Penn can stuff the takedown long enough to win the first two rounds, then there's no way Fitch can finish him in the third.

Hell, Penn can rock him and put him away, he does have ridiculous power when he connects right for being such a small guy.

Anywho, point is, if Penn can stuff the TD he wins, if he can't he loses. That's what this fight will depend on.

I think Penn will be prepared to be on his back and unlike GSP did, Fitch doesn't tend to do damage from the top which means Penn can go to work without worrying about being to damaged.

I don't think Penn can do enough off his back to threaten Fitch.

I don't think in a million years Fitch can hurt or finish Penn, but I can't remember the last time Penn subbed someone from the bottom. In fact, I think the last time he even attempted it was against Pulver 4 years ago.

Fitch has really, really good sub defense, and the only thing I can see Penn doing from his back is what he normally does, which is sweep and try to stand back up, but if he can't, it'll be a decision win for Fitch.

BJ can take fitch down.

Fitch doesn't really have great TDD and BJ has seriously underrated TD's everyone always talks about his TDD but his offensive wrestling is just as good as his defensive, he took GSP down in the first fight and yes that was years ago but straight after GSP was stuffing hughes with ease and that was when matts wrestling was still some of the best.

Obviously it's very doubtful that he will be able to control fitch on the ground but if he utilizes it then he can throw fitch off a bit.

I think thats an easy answer SJ^^

only take a look at the odds and it's an obvious pick for Fantasy Leagues however, I would still go with Jon because he would probably win more times out of ten.

Even if they were the same size I think Fitch would be able to control BJ on the ground the whole fight, but Fitch is a huge ww and BJ is a small ww. I see this going, and looking like Lesnar-Mir II. Only with a Fitch decision.
