Jon Fitch: B.J. Penn is dangerous in any weight class

UFC welterweight contender Jon Fitch tells that B.J. Penn is dangerous in any weight class.

Jon Fitch is taking his UFC 127 main event match up with B.J. Penn very seriously.

Fitch will enjoy a reach and size advantage over the former UFC lightweight and welterweight titleholder. But will that be enough for the American Kickboxing Academy trained fighter?

“B.J. is dangerous in any weight class. He brings a certain type of skill set that if you make a mistake he’s able to capitalize on it and put you away, and that transfers into any weight class,” said Fitch.

“As a welterweight going into this fight I have certain advantages with size, but it’s not going to be enough. I’ve had to work a lot on speed and explosiveness and keeping everything tight to make sure there are no mistakes in this fight.”
