Fitch cant handle the riddum......he's gonna get beat at his own game. St. Pierre is right both fighters are well rounded but st. pierres athleticism is on another level.

although I agree... the interview was badly translated. GSP's exact words correctly translated are : " I respect Jon Fitch, he is a very good fighter, but i'm not scared of him"

Unfortunately, its true. I cant see an aspect of the fight game where Fitch has the edge.....oh well I will still root for him

Fitch has a chance to win, a slim chance. If he can get on top of GSP, he might b able to control the ground game, but his only hope is a hand from god KO, or lay n pray UD. either way, I got GSP round 2 sub.

HIs only way to win is a KO a la Serra There is no way in hell that FItch could pull off a L&P UD against GSP, i don't even see how he could get top position once imagine holding it for 5 rd lol he would need to take GSP down at least 3 rd and hold him there
