I can guarantee that there will be a ton of dipshit posters who will question Penn's conditioning and cardio for the Fitch fight as it gets closer. It's too firmly imbedded in the public psyche to go away.
Well Penn even said he didn't have the conditioning for the Edgar rematch. BJ Penn Still Looking to Pass Cardio Quiz After 23 Professional Fights | 5thRound.com – UFC News, Strikeforce and MMA News, UFC 125 Play-by-Play Results
ďI tried some stuff in the Frankie Edgar fight. I didnít defend the takedowns as hard as I wanted to because I wanted to try a couple sweeps, but I didnít have the conditioning,Ē Penn admitted in an interview with Joe Rogan (Transcribed by CagePotato). ď[Itís] always a wake-up call when you lose because you know youíre going to alter something in your training.
