I agree with this. And I concede that Fitch is very good with sub defense, positioning, staying calm. But doesn't mean you take on one of the best BJJ guys in MMA in his ow world.
I'm interested to see how it plays out if Fitch does try the ground.
But I'm not that excited for this because more than likely it turns into a bad striking contest. Maybe Maia can get Fitch to the mat.
