"There is so many guys out there right now to fight. I just need to get a good fight against somebody, top 10 or top 15. Now that B.J. (Penn) is back, that would be fun to settle that finally, but, I don't think he wants a piece of me so he is going after young guys."


When asked if he thought "Baby J" was "ducking" him, Fitch simply stated:


"Yeah, I do."

He is. Plain and simple. But Fitch, always being a gentleman also said he wasn't calling anyone out because he's injured and can't expect people to wait around for him to heal.

Damn it, I love Jon Fitch!

When I read the title of this thread, I thought Fitch was full of it - and then I realized he was asked a stupid question which rightfully deserves a stupid answer.

I personally think THAT was one stupid question - especially coming from a reporter/journalist.

No interest in that fight again.

or Penn at 170, rather see him come back at 155 or not at all.

I think these two images drum up enough interest for me to see the rematch.

Two great fighters settling the question "Who is better?" in the cage is something I always want to see.

I couldn't give less of a shit about what Jon Fitch thinks

Jon Fitch needs to learn some respect.
