Fitch in the UFC has the same record as Pierce does in his career. Not real excited for the matchup though. Fitchy by UD.

No disrespect to Pierce but WTF. How does Joe Silva go from Alves to Pierce? There are a lot of guy at 170 that would step up for. Pierce gutted out a win over Larson but no way he outlasts Fitch.

This would make a lot of sense and definately be a war.....I wish they would make it happen. More than likely Karo would say no.
