According to reports, Fitch controlled most of the fight and Penn even acknowledged afterward that he thought he had lost.

“I think I did enough to win at least a split decision. I want the title more than anything, but at the end of the day we don’t make the decisions. … I’m here to fight, I’m here to fight the best. If my 13 wins in the UFC already isn’t enough to put me in for a title shot, I’m ready to prove myself more, ” Fitch was quoted saying.

“Since the gods were nice to me and gave me a draw, if he wants to do it again I’ll do it again,” Penn was quoted saying.
