Think you're getting a bit carried away there buddy. Fitch might get punch drunk a bit, but he's hard as all hell to put away. Pierce hits like a god damn tank too. He's a HUGE WW. Pierce may not be tall, but he's built like a truck, so I fully expected him to rock Fitch a couple times. Hardy has little game on the ground and not nearly enough TDD to stop Jon. Jon would crush him and probably sub him in the second.
ON TO THE POINT:
I'd much rather see Hardy (he will) get destroyed right now and let Fitch mature a bit more as a fighter and improve his game. If Fitch has two more fights before he gets GSP again he'll stand a MUCH better chance at winning. I vote for Fitch to fight Almedia next, then rematch Alves and if he wins there, rematch GSP for the belt. I think by that time he'll be able to take it to him much more. Not saying he'll WIN against GSP, but he'll do a lot better than he did last time.
I'm not voting for either option though because Idon't want Jon to fight GSP again YET. And I also don't think it will be anything like the first fight.
