When Jon Fitch was cut from the UFC following a unanimous decision loss to Demian Maia at UFC 156 in February, UFC President Dana White said the welterweight - while still a good fighter and a guarantee to be a champion in a smaller organization - was basically on the downside of his career.

Even at age 35, Fitch and his supporters bristled at the idea the still top-ten ranked welterweight was in any decline. Still, it didn't matter. His first fight in his new home of the World Series of Fighting (WSOF) would be a good opportunity to bounce back...

Jon Fitch will always be one of my favorite fighters, no matter what happens here on out. Good for him for trying to remain positive.

Fitch just got finished in the first round by Aaron Burkman. Somewhere between 6-8 years ago, Fitch finished Burkman in the first.

If his career trajectory were plotted on a line graph, it would be nearly impossible for his stock to drop further. He has fifteen fights left in him if he is fighting cans.

Fifteen fights!

That's at least 225 minutes!

I might be alone on this but I still want to see Fitch fight. I think he hit a mental block his past couple fights, not trying to make excuses for him but obviously the Burkman fight was a tough loss and not what we usually see out of Fitch.

I still think he is a very competitive WW and probably does have a good 15 fights left in him.

Did you say the same thing about Vitor before he came back to the UFC?
