Tweet Pin It Countdown To UFC 141: Nate Diaz v. Cowboy Cerrone Alistair Overeem And Team UFC 141 Pre-Fight Interview 18 Comments oldassgrappler December 28, 2011 Sorry Jon you are fighting for the wrong company if you want to support the integrity of MMA. Need to go open a dojo and teach theory and logic which is great. But UFC is already going the way of pro wrestling. JMO Log in to Reply Beast w/ 8 Limbs December 28, 2011 He’s confused. He says that he doesn’t care to perform, but then says that he’s really frustrated for not getting the finishes. It’s pretty simple… In the UFC, if the fans don’t want to watch you fight, it’s a hell of a lot harder to get the shot. How many people outside of Canada do you think would pay to watch, or to attend GSp v. Fitch?

Log in to Reply gunnyhighway99(Panama) December 28, 2011 Fitch is a boring ass fighter, just like GSP and all the other MFs who just want to win wrestling wars and grind out wins. The fans, who are the people who pay your salaries, want to see fighters that fight and freaking KOs!! Start striking, start fighting, and you’ll get more fights and better press. Log in to Reply ^^^^ December 28, 2011 This guy used to be called a Beast, now he’s considered boring by everyone. In fact, I used to love watching him fight, but he’s not aggressive as he used to be. He doesn’t have to finish fights to be considered exciting, he needs to be more aggressive and punish his opponents with his GNP. Guys like Tito and Sonnen are good examples of how exciting GnP can be.

Log in to Reply ness2k December 28, 2011 I didn’t even know he was fighting. That’s how boring he is. Log in to Reply coutura December 28, 2011 who wats to see this guy going to distance is boring Log in to Reply BigPappa December 28, 2011 I can NOT sit through another Jon Fitch decision. I am rooting for Hendricks all the way but will be happy if either fighter finishes the fight in the 1st round. It wouldn’t surprise me if the UFC releases Fitch if he loses.

Log in to Reply Thxer December 28, 2011 If you only fight to win on points that’s fine, but don’t expect to be a fan favorite. GSP fights with a more entertaining grind and even he receives constant criticism. Log in to Reply lamdalu December 29, 2011 dude has it figured out. the integrity of the sport needs to be displayed publicly. if it’s going to mainstream it must have aspects which ALL audiences can enjoy. some of us love to see a long, drawn out competition between two athletes. hendo vs shogun for example. that fight was a triumph of the human spirit. dude has been one of the best for a LONG time, and it’s not for no reason. Log in to Reply paddlin December 29, 2011 Jon, you coming off of a lay off because of your injury. Before that you had a draw with BJ Penn. You’re a great wrestler, but there isn’t any buzz around you because what have you done that deserves any credit or excitement lately? Log in to Reply mysrylvscmpany December 29, 2011 How would they really hype his fights…have rogan talk about how he takes people down and turns into a wet blanket for 15 mins, or use the term “grinder” which really is a nice way of saying hes probably going to try and control position for a dec. Log in to Reply Rockstarzee December 29, 2011 wow are people really hating on fitch. how can you? he has the best ufc record other then anderson silva. he wins fights, period. thats what fighters get paid to do. #2 ww in the world. easily Log in to Reply SEAN_VANCE December 29, 2011 @Rockstarzee…No one questions he wins fights…I just wouldnt pay to see him fight… snore fest Log in to Reply American MMa December 29, 2011 **** jon Fitch.
