Am i the only guy who doesnt like watching Fitch fight?

The dude is super talented, dont get me wrong however i cant watch the guy fight. They are always so boring, i realise styles make fight etc but his last 6 fight have gone to a decision and very few of them have actually been entertaining. Im not trying to say hes a bad fighter etc because hes not, hes a great fighter its just i always watch his fights and get incredibly bored. It seems to be the same thing with the same result every time he steps into the octagon. The last time he finished a fight was over 2 years ago

I think a lot of people feel the same. I think Fitch is a great fighter but it's rare that he does something unpredictable to finish a fight. He's solid but unspectacular.

Favourite Fighters:

Dan Hardy
Paul Daley
Georges St-Pierre
Nick Diaz
Cain Velasquez
Frank Mir
Demian Maia
All the British MMA guys
And... Fedor!

I've always said that he's a bootleg version of GSP. Very solid, but not great. Just not that entertaining to watch.

Why do you think dana didnt think twice about sending him his walking papers? The guy had a win streak that matched royce gracie's as the 2nd longest in the ufc and no one knows or cares about it..Why do you think that is? the guy is forgettable, has no personality, cant sell a fight and his style is not fan friendly, thats a lot of no nos..It seems it doesnt really matter what level the opponent is as soon as they get in the cage with him its an automatic 3 round borefest. I'm glad the ufc are feeding him garbage fights against no namers.. There should come a time when the ufc forces him to either face swick or kos because they are all on a collision course...

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering

After this fight i don't really see him beating GSP. He was nearly down in the last round.

I like Fitch, but as has been said, i think his fights are quite boring, ok he keeps winning but doesnt do enough to be considered an elite.

I'm a big fan, I don't mind watching it go to a decision, but I think he should work on finishing a lot more, he knows he's under criticism for it too, but hey what can you do ya know, put yourself in his shoes

I love watching Fitch fight, but the big difference between Fitch and a lot of fighters is that once most fighters smell blood they go for the finish. Fitch is consistant throughout the whole fight. If you happen to fall for an RNC, or get KO'ed by a HK then fine, but just because you wobble he isn't going to swarm you. It is one of the reasons he had such a long winning streak and will probably have another. Fitch will never be the guy who talks alot of shit, or calls people out, or talks about how exciting he is. Fitch is just a hard worker who systematically beats his opponents by being so consistant no matter what they do. He is like a calm Clay Guida.
