Good fight for Fitch, punishing grappling. Silva gassed as he was has got heart.

That was arguably the best performance in Fitch's career immediately following one of the worst losses in his career.

Definitely an admirable comeback.

I hope Silva learns from that. You HAVE to respect a fighter like Fitch - he didn't and he paid a bloody price. Not that he looked bad I was still really impressed with Silva but he needs more time against top competition.

He should come back better now Fitch beat some sense into him.


Thanks to Leakler for the sig

5. Chuck Liddell
6. Wanderlei Silva

Ref should have stopped it and allowed Fitch the finish. I realize Jon's punches weren't exactly dynamite, but Silva was literally doing nothing but eating them for two minutes. Would have been nice to see Fitch get the rightful finish.
