I just finished watching this fight. It took place last Saturday night and I missed it then. Where to start… In my opinion, Jon Fitch won this fight. A majority draw is questionable but I suppose an acceptable conclusion. For some it is not. In the first round we saw some good action. Jon Fitch was landing some good inside shots while BJ scored a take down that I think gave him the round. Fitch defended well and prevented Penn from locking in a rear naked choke. Fitch tried to get a take down of his own but was unable. Round 1 goes to BJ Penn.
Round 2 begins and Jon Fitch gets a take down on Penn. BJ gets to his feet and is fighting off the cage. Fitch is landing nice short shots to BJ’s face. Fitch starts to shed blood out of his nose running down Penn’s back. Jon is winning the exchanges but BJ gets a take down. BJ secures Fitch’s back but does not do much. Fitch reverses position and is landing body and head shots on Penn. BJ gets to his feet just as the round closes. Round 2 was close but I’d give it to Jon Fitch.
Round 3 begins and Jon Fitch lands a right hand and then takes Penn to the mat. From here on, Fitch is on top landing heavy shots. Time runs out and in my opinion, Jon Fitch won this fight. The judges rendered a majority draw. I am sure a rematch will be made in the near future.
