If Fitch lets Maia sink in a choke Fitch is going nighty night.

Great performance from Fitch. I didn't see a much different Jon Fitch than normal though tbh, just the guy he was fighting was actually trying to win, not content once taken down to just let Jon lie on him. Erick was constantly trying to stay active, get a submission or get back to his feet, something a lot of Fitch's opponents either don't really try to do, or don't have the ability to do. This made for an incredibly entertaining fight, and a fight Fitch would be more capable of putting on regularly if he wasn't fed a stream of guys who just aren't on his level. Whenever Fitch fights top level guys we get awesome fights. This fight was awesome, the Penn fight was awesome, the GSP fight was entertaining. Fitch just needs to stop fighting guys like Ben Saunders and Akihiro Gono.

Would love to see Fitch vs Maia, or Kampmann if he beats Hendricks. Both would be awesome battles, unless Fitch decided to strike with Maia. That'd make for an awful, awful fight. Fitch needs to fight entertaining guys though. Kampmann, Diaz, MacDonald, and Ellenberger would all be awesome fights.

The Maia fight is interesting to me as it will be a fight where Jon's best bet to win will be by keeping it standing and bang it out on the feet in a sloppy brawl.

Exactly what I thought. If everyone Fitch fought didn't just decide they couldn't win but at least they could stall and tie him up and avoid getting finished at least. That's a bargain I think a lot of guys make fighting Fitch. They decide that the fight is lost, but at least they need to make it to a decision.
