BJ Penn has warned Jon Fitch that he has picked the wrong man against whom to prove he is worthy of another UFC welterweight title shot.

Fitch is just about the most consistent performer in the UFC, winning 13 of his 14 bouts since joining MMA‘s premier organisation in 2005. Only Georges St-Pierre has beaten the AKA fighter, the only defeat suffered by Fitch in his last 22 career fights.

Now he wants a second crack at the welterweight title and, due to a fighting style that is not always easy on the eye, Fitch knows he must beat star names like Penn to turns the heads of the UFC bosses.

However, Penn is a former two-weight champion, coming off a 21-second knockout of Matt Hughes, and he warned Fitch that he has picked the wrong man.

“I really feel like I’m the most dangerous guy out there,” said Penn. “A two-time world champion… I’m definitely the wrong guy to go up against right now.

“The reason I took the fight is because Jon Fitch is that good. I want to see what he has. No disrespect to Jon Fitch, but show me, show me how good you are.”
