Fitch says he won the fight, Dana strongly disagrees

By Fighters Only

Jon Fitch has sat down and watched his UFC 127 fight with BJ Penn – and thinks the judges should have awarded him the win rather than declaring the fight to be a draw.

“Finally watched the fight back myself. First [round] draw and I won [round] 2 and 3. I will prove myself if I must. But I know I won that fight,” he wrote on The Underground.

“Much respect to BJ. He is the legend I thought he was. I think that was the best BJ any of us have ever seen.”

Unfortunately for Fitch, UFC president Dana White shot his performance to bits after the event and said he believed Penn should have been awarded the win.

“Fitch is one of these guys that goes, ‘Oh, I want my respect,’” White said. “He just fought a 155-pound guy and went to a draw with him and in my opinion, he lost the first two rounds – and he’s crying for a title shot?

“Personally, I scored the first two rounds for Penn and had him winning the fight. There’s no doubt B.J. got pounded in the third round, but that wasn’t a 10-8 round. You’ve got to get in there and decisively beat people. You have to have fans clamouring for you to fight for the title.”

Admin Note: I scored the fight also. Jon Fitch clearly won that fight.
