Jon Fitch: "To teach just to get ahead on money"
 
:cool04: :cool04: :cool04:



:cool04: :cool04: :cool04:

(The band is there to keep you awake)

For the most part its a very typical Jon FITCH!! interview. He talks about Bj Penn for a little while and his opponent. I did laugh when he said

"He is inexperienced so i want to take him to the deep waters and see how well he can swim"

:eek: *Shocker* :eek:

Jon Fitch is planning to take someone in to the later rounds??? Could anyone have foreseen this turn of events??? :eek03: :eek03:


I was surprised at what he says the last 30 seconds of the video. I didnt expect someone like Jon Fitch to struggle with money.

The guy is 13-2-1 in the UFC. That is a total of 16 fights with the UFC.

With wins over

Josh Burkman
Thiago Alves (x2)
Diego Sanchez
Akihiro Gono
Mike Pierce (Is it weird that his 3 losses in the UFC are to Fitch,Koscheck and Johny Hendricks lol?)
Ben Saunders


He does not have any amazing wins and he isnt exciting but still i figured he wins enough to not have to worry about money when trying to train.

I don't think Dana gives him as much "bonus" money as he doesn't finish, and the whole UFC/AKA disagreement from a few years ago. Sucks that such a talented and dominant top-5 WW still has to teach just to make ends meet. Dude deserves better!

I think you've been posting too much about the same fighter in the past few days.

Re-read your post brother.

It's sad that I have dissed Jon Fitch for years, however I like him more than Jones. Jon Fitch is actually a sad story, nobody gives a f*** about Jon Fitch. He is a great fighter, but very boring. He flies under the radar even though his credential is very impressive. I'm sure if he finishes a fight his fortune will change.

This is where Dana screws over Fitch, sure many people may not think he is fun to watch and the list goes on, but he deserved a title shot well before he got a draw against Penn and got KO'ed against Hendricks.

Feel bad for Jon Fitch simply because he was the #2-3 ranked WW for a while couple years ago, and he wasn't even getting a nod for a title shot when guys are getting it for the second time like Koscheck.

Koscheck didn't get two title shots, his fight with GSP was a title eliminator after he lost the belt to Matt Serra.

The big thing I worry about with Jon Fitch is that he'll get Torres'd out of the UFC with another loss. Dana is starting to get a hard on for dumping fighters he doesn't respect and he doesn't respect Fitch.

I'm sure Fitch has lots of money.

It just might not be enough to sustain his way of living for the rest of his life. ie: not champion money.
