UFC 127 Results:B.J. Penn Vs. Jon Fitch

UFC 127 saw a controversial draw in the main event between Jon Fitch and BJ Penn. The fight was ruled a majority draw when two judges scored it a 28-28 draw while the other scored it a 29-28 win for Fitch.

While most would agree that Fitch should have won the fight, we need to get over that and look toward the future for Jon Fitch who still has to be considered one of the very elite fighters in the world at 170 pounds.Bisping wasn't playing that old game. He worked himself up over Rivera's constant internet attacks, used his rage to power him in the cage, and wasn't willing to let bygones be bygones.

On a night of upsets, it's probably a good thing he found something to motivate him. On paper, Bisping far outclasses Rivera. It would have been easy to glide through a perfunctory training camp and become another victim on a night full of them. After all that went down, Bisping was going to do whatever it took to win the fight.

Penn surprised the American Kickboxing Academy standout with his game planning. The gifted Hawaiian scored with takedowns in each of the first two rounds and secured back control on Fitch, threatening him with chokes from behind. Fitch defended successfully and turned into Penn’s guard on both occasions.
