Jon Fitch: “I have a huge gas tank and historically that’s a big problem for BJ Penn”

UFC welterweight contender, Jon Fitch explains that former lightweight champion, BJ Penn will need to have good cardio if he is going to keep up the pace with him Down Under at UFC 127 at Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia on Sunday, February 27th, 2011.

Fitch, speaking via SI.com, said:

“I’m extremely hard to finish and I have a huge gas tank and historically that’s a big problem for B.J. Penn. If he doesn’t have the cardio to keep up with my pace, there’s no way he’s going to last. If I went out there and tried to match BJ’s timing, or match BJ’s speed, it would never happen. And a lot of guys fall into that trap. It’s more about setting your pace and dictating the action, dictating what’s going on in the fight. That way you’re not reacting to things, you’re making the faster guy react to you. If you’re good enough you can set traps, make them react the wrong way.”
