“I needed to fight, I was (previously) scheduled for Nov. 21 and I’ve been training 5-6 weeks already. I don’t like a lot of down time, I like to fight often. Waiting around for Thiago (Alves) to get better was not an option. The last week has just been up and down, changing training camps from one day to the next and emotionally getting up and down for different opponents. Mike Pierce is not well know but sometimes these kinds of fights are harder than the high profile fights because people expect you to go out and smash a guy they don’t know so if you don’t, they hold it against you. This fight can very easily turn into one of my tougher fights.”

Former UFC welterweight number one contender Jon Fitch shares the frustration of undergoing multiple changes in both events and opponents after Ricardo Almeida and Thiago Alves both went down with knee injuries and were forced out of action.

I know you're new here, so I'll just say cool it. We take the rules seriously on the playground and want to make this place about intelligent discussion. This is borderline trolling. There are plenty of Fitch fans who care who he fights and the who/what/when/where/why of his career.

Fitch is awesome and I for one dont understand why Mike Pierce is his opponent??? Im puzzled by it daily, I wish Larsen won against Pierce cause Larson against Fitch would be excellent, in fact f**k it they should still put Larson against Fitch lol
Mike Pierce???

New dude is entitled to his opinion but I'm entitled to mine as well. My opinion is that you expressed your opinion poorly and may have offended both the poster of this topic and anyone who cares about Jon Fitch.

I also think that Jon Fitch put up a hell of a fight against GSP and that he is Top 5 in his division. Not only that but he remains one of the most legitimate threats to GSP's belt and is well beyond gate keeper status.
