I know we are few and far between, but we need to stick together and circle the wagons after that KO, because it's going to be a relentless onslaught by Fitch haters until his next victory.

I just want to say, that I'd still take Fitch in a rematch against Hendricks.

fitch definitely got caught. i think it could turn out to be a blessing in disguise though. if fitch would have just ground out another decision victory a lot of people would have said the same ol' shit about him not finishing anyone. however, now that he got caught he's going to have to come back with much more intensity and really look to prove that he deserves another title shot, hopefully by finishing some opponents. im still a fan

I'm a long time fan, dude is a lot more talented in all areas than people think. I must sasy I'm very happy he got that ass beat though so he can see the result of having zero marketability and losing anyway.

I'm not the biggest Fitch fan, but i do not doubt his skill.. the problem is that he keeps getting put in matchups where his wrestling is a good path to victory. You can't blame a fighter for wanting to take the path of least resistance. It's like claiming the Packers shouldn't rely on Rodgers so much bc he's clearly their most talented component.

Who knows.. maybe he can lure BJ or Hughes out of retirement and get some attention

And way more fun to watch it. I'll admit now that I will probably be hating on Fitch pretty hard after that loss.

That was a great fight, I almost got up to make a sandwich, And thought I will keep watching for a bit.... 12 seconds later I figured out I made the right choice.

All I can see is see Fitch haters, He doesn't always go the distance..... Oh wait!






War Hendricks !!!









Still

I'd pick Fitch over Hendricks if they fought 99 more times.

I just wish Fitch would shut up about Ron Paul on Twitter. Enough already.
