“I wasn’t that beat up. Just a little off in the head after the first dropedge. I’m fine and will be back before the end of the year if I have any say in it.”

Top welterweight contender Jon Fitch is eager to return to the Octagon after missing out on an opportunity to topple Georges St. Pierre at UFC 87: “Seek and Destroy” and capture his 170-pound title. Despite “being a little off in the head” early in the five-round fight, Fitch managed to hang on until the very end, delivering one of the gutsiest performances of the year. It would be no surprise to see him take on the winner of the welterweight bout between Karo Parisyan and Yoshiyuki Yoshida at UFC 88: “Breakthrough” on September 6.

He needs a top fight imo.

Maybe the winner of Karo/Yoshida ?

I would like to see him fight Hazelett. I think it would be a great fight and if Fitch wins he gets a good win under his belt and if Dustin wins he will be launched into the elite.

IMO that fight would only benefit Hazelett. Fitch is on another level.

don't be so sure that Parisyan is just going to run through Yoshida... I think the fight is going to be extremely competitive and close. Fitch versus the winner makes a whole lot of sense though.

Really he wasn't that beat up? Could have fooled me!

Athletic commissions suspend licenses for real injuries, not bruises. He's saying he's not injured and will be able to fight. Tim sylvia's face looked perfectly normal when Mir snapped his arm in half, but he was definitely a lot more beat up than Fitch is.

I like it. Im just not sure Fitch will fight before the end of the year.. I think that fight will probably happen though on the January card or possibly February.
