Boring is subjective though. I've never thought a fight of his was boring. The amount of skill it requires to break someone the way he does, to dominate like that, is extremely entertaining. Fitch doesn't finish a lot of dudes because he really cannot hit that hard. He just doesn't have that power. I mean he threw everything he had a BJ, Saunders and now Erick and none of them were finished. After the first round it gets exponentially harder to submit someone as well. Sweat doesn't like submissions. Add in that the sweat makes it that much harder to hold a top level fighter down and then re-evaluate what Jon is doing. He's straight DOMINATING the best fighters in the world for 15 minutes. Sure he's not breaking teeth and noses and knocking people unconscious like Silva is doing, but he's dominating them just the same. Same with GSP, honestly. I get people being mad at him not taking risks, but by him opting to pretty much stay there for 15 minutes or until something obvious opens up, that's a pretty big risk in itself. There's a LONG time you have to be on point or that fight can turn on you in a second.

In terms of athletic performance, six years is huge. Silva is still about two years from peaking, most men reach their athletic pinnacle at about 30 - 32 these days. Fitch, may have one run left in him still... but Silva still will challenge for the title by 2014... count on it.

I've never heard of anyone saying a man's athletic pinnacle is in his thirties. I've heard 28 every single time I talk to anyone.

Yeah, silva isn't a 'kid' just because he looks young. I had no idea he was 28. I thought he was early 20s at the most.

@ BRC I respect that you`re still on the bandwagon after last night, but St Pierre would mangle Silva. He`s basically just an even nastier version of Fitch and he`d have 5 rounds to beat Silva`s face in instead of 3.

Did they get Fight of the Night? I damn sure hope so. Might even be a FOTY candidate.

Just checked, Fitch got his first FOTN after GSP.

I'd been told that aswell, but this was the first real live fight of his I watched (besides Hendricks one). Definently not boring.

I would say you peak at 28 and hold that up to 33-35...longer if you are special. But the brain matures till the end, its not really like Silva needs to get stronger anyway...
