UFC 94 “BJ Penn vs. St-Pierre 2″ Fights Official, Fitch Headlines The Undercard?

UFC 94 “Penn vs. St-Pierre 2″ is now official and set to go off on January 31 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV.

Headlining the main card will be the second meeting between current UFC lightweight champion BJ Penn and UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre for the UFC welterweight belt.

UFC 87 headliner Jon Fitch will surprisingly head up the undercard against Akihiro Gono. Earlier this month Jon Fitch was released by the UFC after refusing to sign away his lifetime video game rights, but was later ultimately rehired after coming to terms with the company. Whether this disloyalty resulted in his banishment to the undercard or the main card was just to stacked, only time will tell.

  1. why the hell not have Fitch fight Karo on the main card? I will admit that I am not a big fn Karo or Fitch but they should fight eachother to move up the ranks not beat ppl who are out of their league.

  2. Choke Hazard says:

    Good Call, fitch would prob beat karo but i wouldn't totally count him out… and why th hell is jones / bonner on main card insted of fitch? i think joe silva needs to take a look at this card a little more carfully

  3. we know what this is really about, fitch is still the #2 ww karo is not ranked that high niether is nate or bonner in there weight classes.

  4. We know this is punishment for Fitch for the drama caused…there putting him on the undercard for that reason stupid Dana…not a big Fitch fan but this better be the only time this happens he deserves to be on main card fights.

  5. Has anyone heard an update on Koscheck? Isnt he still refusing to sign away his video game rights.

    Didn't Fitch just fight for a title? And now, 1 fight later he is on the undercard? Oh, that's right…Karo is a headliner. Who exactly is Karo sleeping with to continue to fight in the UFC? He and Tito should combine forces and try their skill at pro bowling. I do like that idea of Fitch and Karo fighting. Fitch can beat him like Karo stole his bike. Then Karo can tell Rogan how 2 day prior to the fight Karo lost his leg in a chemical spill but went ahead and fought anyway…or whatever lame excuse Karo has for not winning. Then Manny can emmerge from Karo's butt and cheer for Karo's heart and skill! Does everyone know that Manny is Karo's cousin? Oh, yeah, they do because Manny says it every chance he gets. Karo sucks and Fitch is getting the shaft. Sorry for the rant! Merry Christmas all

  7. wtf give john a real fight…

    nick vs clay i see nick with the su then move on to a top 5 guy

  8. Karo is a badass..He will be in the UFC forever and be a champ one day..he has been in the ufc since like ufc 28 or somthing long time and he is a badass.. He also was going to fight for the tittle when he was younger but he hurt his back and had to pull out then when he copme back he had to clim the latter and make 3 good wins thn a lose to nightmare put him back..so i think its time they stop giving karo the shaf bu still John got fucked…they should be fighting each other as the co main event

  9. just another mma dud says:

    I agree, Tom, that Karo is a badass but do you really think he is at the same speed as the latest generation of fighters? I will give him credit in so much as he goes out and fights for the sake of fighting but he is no GSP, BJ, Silva, or Fedor… He's not even a Coutour, Liddell, or Franklin! He didn't make it when he was in his prime and I don't see him making champ now. I might be wrong and I will be the first to take my "I told you so" if he ever does win a title. Karo in my opinion has been solid by UFC standards but not great. Tom, thanks for being a gentleman with your disagreement of my opinion…It's cool that we don't have to swear at one another to make a point! Oh, and I still don't like Karo…on Manny.

  10. yeah i agree karo is a solid fighter but he will never be champ, maybe he should drop to 155 cause the 170 guys are getting big and he is a little soft.

  11. ….sniff!….man I miss all this LOVE! :-p…Still checkin in once in a while…love the takes, busy as hell with the tribe…family…school and all…agree that Karo is not in the same conversation as Fitch….but HEY!!! Really? In the same sentence with Frito?!…Not Quite there yet…I still dig watching karo work his judo in and win or lose…there is always the chance he CAN win…unlike Mr. Jenna Jameson…who's only tie to fighting guys his age is commenting on them from outside the cage while attempting to hold up any poor shmuck who would be dumb enough to pay him to fight some schlep up and comer….at least his wife could still resume her carreer anytime SHE wanted….someone's gotta get L…paid……………………(still trade his checks for mine,though)

  12. Wow Dana, Way to show your true colors.

    What a jerk

  13. damn thats crazy. he's got bonner and parisyan making the main card and fitch is an undercard? i'm sure it will get shown but yeah it seems like either fitch asked to be on the card after it was finalized or dana is trying to impose his power trip.

  14. or its just a clerical error and he will end up on the main card. OH Karo is 26 Id say that he is just about to reach his prime.
