Fitch was beating middling fighters and cans for the most part and with decisions. He is a very good fighter not a great one or the second best in his division.
Fitch has been in the UFC since 2005. That's literally 3 eras of MMA ago IMO.

Maia would be a threat for GSP in my opinion.. He was the ground skills to defend and he didn't get KO'd by Anderson.. so let it be and we will see..

yeah I have said this a few times, the best he's beaten is a tie between thiago alves who missed weight and was dead on scale and erick silva a novice with bad grappling and an even worse gas tank who keeps his hands too low with no reason to, his win streaks are against cans and mid tiers

He still managed to beat eight straight in the UFC, not an easy feat no matter who you're fighting. And when you win eight straight you get a title-shot. He paid his dues before he fought GSP.

He then realized that his style did him no favors after the Hendricks fight and has tried to be exciting since, something Maia did not allow him to do (Which was a great piece of work and strategy by Maia)

Fitch seemed to have plenty of endurance, but no power/explosiveness, and he's looked that way for a while, IMO.

Loving Demian at WW. Bringing another look the the division, and another threat to the champ.

Now if we could just get guys like Rashad and Shogun to realise they're fighting in the wrong weight class...

I loved Rogan pointing out Fitch being a hypocrite for complaining that he was getting grinded.

When I saw this first shot, 5 seconds into the fight I was like "YES!" and new I could lay back and enjoy the fight without having to watch a 3 round sloppy boxing match.
