I thought Fitch was boring as RearNaked said. This changed my mind COMPLETLEY. I was in awe at his performance and skill in this fight and he had a masterclass of skills against an amazing opponent.

Silva was finished. The ref didn't do his job.

Neither of those chokes were close btw. Fitch is unchokable like Ebersole.

The Penn fight was exciting as hell too and I had Fitch winning that one too.

Silva defended enough. The referee made the right call.

Even if this fight doesn't get FOTN, it would be a traversty for Dana not to take Fitch to one side and give him one of those "undisclosed" bonuses...lots of fight left in Jon yet!

I agree on the chokes, but it shows Silva was being competitive in there - he would of got many with that choke. Fitch never has been able to step it up a gear when dominating, Silva had given up...but Fitch's shots never look to impactful.

Boring or not, Fitch used legit wrestling technique to win. To curse wrestling does not help no one to overcome it, just like happens to BJJ. It may be boring for some in certain occasions, but opponents have to get over it somehow.

Erick is still green. That loss will only make good to him, training wise and attitude wise.

Congrats to Fitch.

Silva needs to work on getting the **** up correctly. He tried that fight like a banshee and get up no matter what and got his back taken repeatedly.

Don't count Fitch out said it before this fight, silva can be controlled on the mat.

Jon Fitch gained a fan in me last night.

I thought he was outstanding. Silva came in with an 'I can't be beaten' attitude and Fitch took him to the cleaners. It's a shame he couldn't get the finish but I agree with the ref not stopping it.

Definitely FOTN for me.

What made Fitch boring was him constantly holding onto a submission attempt which he always failed to even come close to locking in. i guess he always wanted to try and show off Camarillo's guerilla Jiu-Jitsu as being legit.

His fights with Bj and Saunders were decent because he mainly focused on GnP.
