Jon Fitch jokes that a family photo which includes his brother, cousins, and father could be mistaken for a semi-pro football team. There are a lot of big men in that shot.

And, indeed, Fitch spent much of his life believing he was destined for the NFL.

“Little problem with that way of thinking,” Fitch says. “I am way too slow and turns out I’m at least four inches shorter than I thought I’d be.”

I really really think Fitch is going to have a great showing on Saturday night. I've not convinced myself to pick him yet but I have convinced myself to throw some cheddar on him. This fight is way closer than what the line says because if GSP can't get Fitch to the ground I think it will be a long night for GSP.

I'm not saying Fitch is going to win but training take downs with Koscheck over and over again on top of Fitch already having above average take down D...... all I can say is I'm prepared for an "upset".

I'm a huge GSP fan, don't get me wrong. But I can't root against the hometown guy here. At least I won't be overly disappointed either way...
