Everything Fitch does, GSP does better? That is fallacious if you ask me.
Fitch has DOMINATED every single opponent he has had in the UFC against quality opponents. The only reason why GSP gets more respect than Fitch is because he has fought name brand opponents. Fitch has shown he is almost impossible to submit, so any jits GSP throws his way will be shut down in my opinion. GSP managed to maul Koscheck, so now all of a sudden GSP is the destroyer of all wrestlers. How many people here think that Koscheck would beat Jon Fitch? I think Fitch would lay waste to Koscheck just like he did to Diego (which should NEVER have been a split decision).
With the betting odds the way they are, it would be stupid for anyone to bet against a top notch opponent such as Fitch. Personally, I am betting a shitload on Fitch because I legitimately think he has a strong chance at not only beating GSP, but beating him decisively. In fact, I think Fitch has much more momentum going into this match than GSP does.
If anyone wants to lay down an avatar bet with me, I'd be more than happy to do it.
Fitch has shown no weakness so their is no reason to count him out of ANY fight. I know GSP is the favorite and I wouldn't have it any other way. I'm not going to sit here and say Fitch is better then GSP in some place since Fitch knows he has no clear advantage. On UFC.com he said he's not better then GSP in any area and will be looking for precision punching and accuracy and a perfectly placed punch to take GSP out or at least rock him since GSP's wrestling isn't as great when he's rocked and it's easier to sprawl.(see the 1st Serra fight)
I think with Kos helping him train take down defense and Swick helping him with the size advantage and striking on the feet, Fitch has a really good chance. I'm really rooting for my boy and am picking him by 2nd-3rd round TKO/KO.
Fitch has great training partners for this fight. Kos knows what he is up against and I think GSP is in trouble if he can't take him down.
The Serra reference is a little off. I mean, come on, it was like a one minute fight and any guy rocked isnt going to have good takedowns. GSP was stupid there and should have fell on his back and recovered but continued standing like a moron. If you ask me, he did every possibly needed for Serra to win that fight.
I am picking GSP for this fight, 3rd or 4th round submission but I will put a shitload of money on Fitch for how this site underestimates him.
Every needs to look at GSP's competitors and notice that he has built his career off of wrestlers. Alves and Fitch are destroying the division just as good as he has for good reason, they are well verse in striking! When looking at it, I think GSP is bound to lose his title soon with guys like Fitch, then prob Alves, then hopefully Anthony Johnson to fight. All these guys are going to be premier strikers.
The matchup I am looking forward to is hopefully a Alves/Fitch fight as they are the guys who I see ruling the division
