Penn, Fitch fight to draw

B.J. Penn and Jon Fitch fought to a majority draw in the main event of UFC 127 on Saturday night at the Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia.

Two judges scored the bout a draw while a third had Fitch winning 29-28.

Penn (16-7-2) badly injured Fitch’s nose in the second round, but Fitch dominated the third.

“I think I got some dominant position in the first and second, but he kicked my butt in the third,” Penn said after the fight. “I guess I wasn’t really sure what I was going to do with my career if I lost this fight, but since the gods were nice to me and gave me a draw, if he wants to do it again, I guess we’ll do it again.”
