    Penn didn't decide to strike until he was gassed. He could have taken this.

    i think if he went out with the striking mentality fitch might have had his gameplan set in earlier.. he said himself in the postfights that penns strategy was great, he said he trained absolutely no defensive wrestling and expected only counter boxing from bj.. he didnt fully adjust until midway through round 2.

    True, but BJ didn't mix it up at all. I thought he would strike for a bit, but he went straight for the TD in the first two. Whenever he struck with Fitch for a couple seconds he'd hurt him.
