I'd rather see

Maia vs Gunnar Nelson
Fitch vs Ebersole

Edit:

Didn't realise Ebersole lost to James Head...

Fitch vs winner of Rory/Penn?
This, 100%. Good re-test at the elite level for Rory if he wins or a rematch of a still outstanding draw if BJ wins.

I think a big part of it is most guys recognize how good Fitch is so they fight much more defensively against him. Silva came out like Fitch was just some punk.

If everyone fought Fitch like that Fitch would crush more guys.

He was robbed of a stoppage. Silva was doing nothing for like 2-3 minutes. The punches weren't near 100%, but he took like 50 punches there. Fitch had over 100 ground strikes...

You could tell Fitch was gassed, no doubt it took a lot of energy to not get choked out when Silva had his neck.

LOL. If Fitch could come out like that against GSP we would have a great fight. Would be one of GSPs best tests in a long time I'd think.

Rogan kept mentioning how Silva has said in the past that he fights with "no regard" towards his opponents strengths.

Hopefully he learns from this. I'm not saying take a complete 180 and become an extremely cautious fighter, but as he moves up the divison he can't fight the way he did tonight.

The way he came out from the start of the fight, he was just asking to be taken down by a world class wrestler, and beaten up.

Wow, I thought Fitch would win, but that was a pretty impressive performance by him as well. I'm happy to see him get the win, he's still a top 5 welterweight in my opinion. The guy got caught by Hendricks, it happens, and it doesn't have to mean he is passed his prime. He proved a lot here tonight.

I'm sure Silva will learn from this and be back.

Fun fight, one of the best I've seen in a while.
I've grown sour towards Fitch lately but tonight he fought with something to prove. He mauled Silva in the third round. Erick Silva did well considering. The guy came to fight and put on a show. Definitely nothing he needs to be ashamed of, but he needs to work on that gas tank.

I take my hat off to Jon Fitch, as I said in my first post in this thread, I'm a fan of the guy if anything.

However this doesn't change a thing. Silva was beaten by a combination of a pumped up Fitch and his own arrogance. He'll be back, and he will wear the gold. Of that much I'm certain.

Silva is a beast but he needs to improve his cardio big time.

Fitch was a badass tonight - i give Silva credit for hanging in there for 2 rounds. 2-3 more like this and Fitch will get his title shot...hopefully this was him learning how people get title shots.

He is an explosive guy who fights at a mad pace - he just has to calm it down a little. Fitch is a cardio machine.

Man ain't that the truth! As long as he takes this loss like a man, and learns from it... this loss will probably be better for him than a win would have been at this point. Go back to the gym and spend some more time on the track. He has the style to be one of the greats, as long as this changes him in a positive way.
