Dana Thinks the 3rd round of Fitch-Penn was NOT a 10-8 round

http://espn.go.com/mma/


There's a lot of other stuff in that video, but that one stood out, for me.

HOW THE HELL WAS THAT NOT A 10-8 ROUND!?!?!?!

How much of a beatdown do you have to elect for it to be a 10-8? You get a 10-9 for LnP.

(Dana was NOT, incidentally, implying a 10-7 round.)

Dana White's opinion means shit when it comes to Fitch. He'll say anything to make Fitch look bad, even if he doesn't agree with it.

I'm willing to bet Fitch will get cut if he ever loses 2 fights in a row.

personally I have it as 10-8 but I can see how someone can have it 10-9. Though Fitch dominated he didn't come close to finishing Penn. As for Dana, he just hates Fitch, haha

He just hates Fitch, I remember an interview with Ariel Helwani where he called Jon Fitch a baby because he was "crying" for a title shot. I think that was back when Fitch beat Thiago Alves.

Personally I had it like this:
10-9 Penn
10-9 Fitch
10-9 Fitch (argument that it was a 10-8)

So I convincingly had Fitch winning the fight. Penn also was discouraged and felt that he lost, its a big thing when a fighter doesent try to spin things and admits he should lose.

Fitch broke BJ's spirit in the 3rd. I would be money if you had asked BJ after round 2 he would have told you he was up 2 rounds.

I rewatched the fight and am still positive that BJ won round 2, what I am not as positive about is that Fitch deserved the 10-8, I would still personally give it to him but I could see how somebody could make the arguement for 10-9. Still think the right decision was made.

Dana will say anything to make it look like Fitch doesn't deserve a title shot, he probably doesn't want to give him one even though there is no one outside of Shields that deserves one more than him.

yes...it was...any1 saying otherwise is just making rules up in their head

10-8 round is a round where you dominated you opponent for the whole 5 rounds, thats what fitch did...

Well, I guess it depends on if you see it as BJ on Fitch's back for half the round almost finishing him with a sub, you would think he won the 2nd. But, if you think of it as Fitch defending the submission, reversing the position and doing some minor damage, you could also give him the round.

or you could look at it from realitys POV...wich is penn took his back for less than a minute, never tried or got close to a RNC, and got reversed and pounded on for the last minute of the round

and before that got taken down in the beginning and controlled against the fence for the majority of the round

round 2 is clearly fitches and i also made the mistake of giving it to bj live, but if you just watch round 2, theres really no way you can score it for penn...
