Fitch: BJ Penn a 'coward'

by Dave Doyle | source:

On Tuesday, Fitch used a conference call designed to push AKA's new "Fight Factory" reality series on Nuvo TV to dog Penn, calling him a "coward."

"Here at AKA, we've got fighters who come out to fight, fighters who will face anyone and don't hide from any opponents. You've also got cowards out there like B.J. Penn who say they want to fight people, but then they run and hide."

At one point in his career, Penn trained with AKA, and last month, Penn indicated he'd like to train again in San Jose.

But Fitch clearly wants no part of such talk. Ask to clarify if he considered Penn a coward, Fitch said. "Yes. He's a coward. He wouldn't be welcomed here."

  I just wish the guy would go for it a lot more often. He appears to have all the physical tools to just be putting guys away left and right. But for some reason he doesn't have that killer instinct.

I agree that takedowns are scored to highly. but if BJ gets the takedowns and fitch did nothing of note then (by their apparent rules not mine) Bj get rounds 1 & 2 and he clearly got them form the judges otherwise it would not have been a draw!!!!so base don the facts... BJ gets rounds 1 &2 10-9and fitch gets round 3 10-8 and also based on the fact that you also agree that the 10-8 was bullshit, then BJ takes the Decision ... am i wrong?

"BJ Won the fitch fight.... he won the first 2 rounds"no he didn't. he won the first round. taking someone down and briefly taking their back doesn't = winning the round, especially not when the other fighter GnPs you for half of it.Agree with you on the 10-8 being bullshit. Definitely a solid 10-9. Fitch won R2 and R3 10-9.

BJ Won the fitch fight.... he won the first 2 rounds, yes he got beat up in the last round, but that make it does it work??and dont come at me with that 10-8 bullshit.... laying on a LW for 4minutes and throwing the odd pillow fist is NOT a 10 - 8 holding someone down who is 2 weights below you should be a gimme, Fitch should have got points taken OFF for NOT doing more damage. laughable

Crazy he's 3/3 on those attempts Luigi, Burkman, and Roan. He's got the capability to finish just about anyone. Really wish he would, got nothing against him or his style. It's the majority of his fights I can't stand. But when you get a guy who can match his skills and pace you get a great fight (Diego, BJ, GSP).
