I think people are forgetting how good Fitch is or possibly just really want him to lose because they think he is boring. Silva has looked impressive but Fitch is much better than anybody he has faced. If Brenneman can get Silva down I'm pretty sure Fitch will. Silva got right back up from Brenneman and maybe he will with Fitch. Maybe he is faster and will light Fitch up on the feet.

I suspect Fitch is going to grind out a clear decision like he almost always does but this fight is far more interesting to me than Silva-Bonnar since the outcome isn't obvious.

I defended Fitch for years. I still have alot of respect for him. But I just love watching Erick Silva fight. I'm hoping he is able to work his magic on the feet before Fitch smothers him.

Fitch is going to get a lot of haters should he grind out a boring decision against Erick. I hope the kid is ready though, Fitch is no joke.

People will always on Fitch. Personally, I get mad at his opponents that aren't well rounded enough to stop him rather than hating on Fitch.

Tough fight for Silva to look good in. I'm thinking he has some moments but Fitch is able to weather the storm and control most of the fight keeping Silva down and against the fence grinding out a decision.

This is the fight that tells us where Erick Silva really is in the division. Fitch isn't Charlie B, he'll drag you down and hold you there.... plus grind you out against the cage.

There's a small chance Fitch might do that and frustrate the living heck out of Silva.

The bigger chance is Silva coming in, stuffing TD's and KOing Fitch cold.

I say Silva has this via nasty T(KO) as long as he doesn't underestimate Fitch's TD.

Seriously of you're a 170 pound fighter and you want to be in the Ufc you better have an answer for the elite wrestler or you better be training for it. I know its radical, but how about instead of bitching about wrestlers you learn some ******* wrestling. I mean Jesus you don't see any elite college wrestlers coming in complaining guys can knock them out or submit them.

Was just looking at Silvas record, he's been dq'd twice for illegal strikes and watching some of his old fights he can be taken down. I don't see him popping right back up with Fitch on top of him and I think him going ape shit if he hurts Jon would be the worst thing he could do, he will get taken down, gas or get dq'd. Fitch is just so damn hard to out away.

^ This right here.

This fight will prove a lot about Silva. I don't think his take down defense is as good as some people make it out to be, (Fitch is bigger and has better MMA wrestling IMO than Charlie who was able to take Silva down multiple times)) so I picked Fitch to win a decision, but if Silva does beat him, I'll be sold completely and I won't doubt him as much.

I just hope the referee is completely fair.
