Former UFC lightweight and welterweight champion, BJ Penn has decided to flip his opinion on his UFC 127 main event title eliminator against Jon Fitch this past Saturday night, explaining the more he thinks about it the more he thinks he won the first and second rounds.
Penn, speaking via UFC.com, said:
“The more I’m sitting here thinking about it, I definitely got the better positions and the more dominant positions. I guess the first thing I was thinking was just the last round, but now, the more I’m sitting here thinking about the first two rounds – I did. I had much better positions than he had.
“I guess a bunch of different things are running through my mind when the fight ended. I guess that has to be the next fight again. I mean, I don’t see any other way.”
