His fights with Bj and Saunders were decent because he mainly focused on GnP.
He almost broke Ericks arm...

Fitch looked really, really good. Very exciting fight. Sucked seeing Silva so dejected, he fought a good fight but just got overwhelmed in the end.

I tip my hat to Jon Fitch. I was fairly neutral going into the fight, giving the slight edge to Silva, but Fitch came out like a man on a mission, did the job, and did it very well.

I actually found myself rooting for Jon in the fight just because I could see how determined he was to win and you could just see how much it meant to him during the fight.

Well done Fitchy.

I picked Silva and he almost damn near got the win. Not bad for such a young kid. I mentioned earlier that this fight would define him. Barboza and The Bronx whom are both upcoming fighters lost once they were tested against veterans. Erick Silva on the other hand did not lose the way they did. He came close to finishing and did not quit or tap out.

This showed where Erick is at. He's championship caliber once he works on his game planning, mental toughness which for the most was displayed by him not quitting, and finally his conditioning. I believe if he had more energy he may have been able to finish the submissions or at least reverse the unfavorable positions he was put in as he did earlier on in the fight. By the third it was survival mode.

No doubt FOTN material. This kid is for real. Once he hones his craft he'll be a major force.

Great comeback for Fitch. One of his better fights. Most likely due to the scrappy nature of Erick. All the other fighters broke under the pressure.

He's 28. He's only 6 years younger than Fitch.

Broke Fitch shall now be spoken of in the same sentence as 'Healthy Shogun', 'Motivated BJ', 'Chuck with that look in his eyes' and 'Old Vitor'

Haha. I was just thinking the same thing. There's a part of me that hopes his cheque bounces.

That wasn't boring at all, but he is normally boring in his modus operandi, although efficient. I thought I was clear defending his M.O., but apparently not.
