I thought BJ was an awful matchup for Fitch. With the exception of Matt Hughes, the only wrestlers that have had success against BJ Penn's TDD have done it by setting up and timing there very well. Those wrestlers are GSP and Edgar and they are probably the best in MMA at that aspect. Fitch isn't the greatest at that. BJ had a sizable technique and power advantage on the feet.

I would have had him out of the top five going into the Silva fight. With the wins they picked up while he went two years with out a loss I would've ranked GSP, Condit, Diaz, Kampmann, ahead of him. He would've been between 6-8 with Kos and Rory.
