Did BJ have to cut for this fight? I know he didn't make 170, he was like 167 with jeans on.

So bigger than Penn but not unreasonably so.
So Fitch is 183lbs before sucking himself dry of all fluids, and if he wasn't on his new diet he'd be even bigger than that. Meanwhile BJ weighed in at 167 or 169 with his jeans and shoes on....and you don't think the size disparity is unreasonable??? Ok man, whatever you want to believe.

Nope...don't believe a ten pound weight difference is unreasonable for a talented enough fighter to overcome. Unless you want MMA to become like boxing where there's fifteen different weight classes you have to accept that in some fights guys will come in with a weight advantage. And Penn proved that he could bridge that weight advantage and be competitive.
