I seriously doubt Fitch's claim about chokes, at least clean RNCs.

During the post fight interview Fitch said that getting out of chokes like that was his trademark or something to that effect.

Fitch has extremely good ground game. Trains with Dave Camarillo. Sanchez's game just isn't on that level. It's like white belt or blue belt against a brown belt. Sanchez tried to play the grappling game too much against Fitch and was just outclassed the whole time. Sure he got a couple sub attempts, but they were basic ones and for someone on Fitch's level, it's easy as pie to escape those.

How did Fitch manage to survive the choke? He was giving thumbs up to the referee too all the while.

Could you discuss here how Fitch managed to stay awake all the while whereas i have seen plenty other guys fall asleep within 10 seconds or tap immediately.

How did he do that? It was simply amazing.
No idea, there was a couple times i thought he was gone but he escaped. Fitch is scary good, look forward to seeing him fight again.

The most solid advice I can give to anyone who fights BJ Penn not motivate the guy. Lets face it, BJ although talented, is naturally lazy. Your job is to NOT convince him to step on that treadmill.

Remember when Fitch got caught in that Anaconda choke? He said that he was almost out after the post interview.

After 76 he said something like I always get caught in a scary submission or something.
