Curious to see if anyone's heard what he's been up to. I've been waiting for a matchup for a bit now.

Last I heard he was injured and that wasn't too long ago. I think we'll see him back in the UFC before spring.

i can't wait for him to return. i like him a lot and anyone who fights to a split decision with fitch is pretty damn good imo. i hope he gets better and gets back to winning because 5-3 does not represent how good he really is.

Dustin, mad props to ya bro. I was just wondering this the other day. I can't wait to see Joslin back in the octagon to see what he can do. Hometown boy is going kick ass and take names.

WAR Joslin!

Wasn't he supposed to get the nod in the Fitch fight and was robbed?

I can't say much about him since I've only seen the Fitch/Kos fights with him and he lost convincingly to both but that's just IMHO. But I could see how he might could have took a round or two in the Fitch fight.

But hopefully he can come back and come back strong and get on my good side meaning I like and actually care for him as a fighter. Right now I'm just skeptical.

it depends on your viewpoint. i personally had fitch winning but you can argue either imo.

as for the injury, he was supposed to fight lytle in July but he had to pull out with a back injury, an injury which he did not give too many details on and just said it was a back injury-end of story.

also i was doing some research on him and found out he made the final round for TUF 3 contestants but wasn't selected, how cool would it be if he was on TUF 3, and how do you guys think he would have done?

Yeah I know about TUF. It's hard to believe that he didn't make it, but some of the other guys did. Then again, Fitch didn't make season 1 either. go figure.


Here is the controversy in the Joslin Fitch fight

Jeff Joslin came back from an Illegal headbutt from Jon Fitch(that broke his nose, knocked his teeth out, and knocked him down) and still fought three rounds after that.

During the 2nd round Fitch spit out his mouth gaurd, then claimed it was Joslin's when the ref tried to shove it back in his mouth...

And in the third round Jeff was punching him and Fitch asked for a time out, and the referee gave it to him!

the time out was def one the the weirdest things i'd seen in a match....didn't quit understand why the ref granted it.

had he not, fight could of gone to joslin.

all hear say at this point.

i believe joslin was supposed to fight either lytle or fickett, i think lytle but he got hurt, hopefully he will be back, i have heard good things and just because you lose to koscheck doesnt make you a bad fighter.

IMHO Joslin got screwed in one of the biggest robberies i have ever seen in all of MMA against Fitch. Timeout? Are you kidding me, Joslin was pounding Fitch at that point and throughout that match and should have got the nod in that decision. Jeff has some serious skills and although I would like to see him fight sooner, I think a good fit for him would be to fight on the upcoming Canadian card. He would be a huge draw up here as most Canadian fans have heard of Joslin.

I would love to see the Joslin vs. Fitch fight if anyone has a link. I heard Joslin was robbed in that fight. =\
