Fitch has stood toe to toe with tons of worthy opponents and not been rocked. Not until the Hendricks fight that shit started going south, and to be fair int his fight he got rocked on the first exchange, to be john fitch... but awesome to see a resurgence like this!

was really gutted for Fitch after that, the choke was quick and he was too stunned to defend it...what can you do? Still love the guy, he'll be back better than before, dude just rushed in too quick, got caught, got goes on.

Last time he was in the UFC was 5 years ago though, i think he has improved for sure. His cardio is way better, or he is just calmer because nervous energy gasses you out after than anything.

His striking looked good here and against Simpson, it would be interesting to see him return now.

So it looks like Burkman will get the title shot for the inaugural welterweight title.

Didn't Fitch once say it was impossible to choke him out?

Words always come back to haunt people.

Sometimes time away can lead to this.
