Maybe Fitch will finally get a stoppage via sub...somehow doubt it but whatever. You could find it hard to pay me to watch him outside of the UFC.

I better not here Burkman telling us about how Fitch doesn't deserve this fight with him. He should be the one wanting the fight & not only because he is the highest ranked fighter possible for him to fight but also to avenge that ass whopping Jon gave him in the ufc. Not only did Jon the decision king beat Josh, he rocked him & then tapped him.

Burkman wasn't complaining about fighting Fitch. Just about if Fitch got a title shot but this seems to be a 3 round non title fight so I don't see him having any problem here

They shouldn't have this main event. They should get someone to brawl with Johnson.

No he was complaining that Fitch had to win a fight or two to "prove" himself. & I guarentee that was an exact phrase, the nerve of Josh stating Jon has to prove himself

I don't remember Burkman saying anything at all about Fitch getting a shot.

Gerald Harris complained about the idea of giving Fitch an immediate title shot because he hadn't fought in the division unless Burkman did too and I missed it.
