Dude could very well be the most boring fighter in the UFC, period.

Jon: Paulo, Gono, Sanchez, Wilson and Pierce (finished by decision.)

Tyson: Dos Anjos, Aurelio, Tibau, Tavares and Guida.

I'd say Jon's level of competition is higher or even to Tysons. No way is Tysons higher. Fitch's fights may not be entertaining to you (I'm assuming you're a fan who watches for "stand and Bang" and Flash KOs by what you're saying) but to a lot of people who enjoy the technical side of MMA he is.

The guy is boring im sorry.

The only exciting part of his last fight was when he got clipped at the end and I thought he might get knocked out.

It's in Fitch's best interest to figure out how to finish fights. Forget about the commercial aspect of it for the moment. Did you see his face at the post fight presser? He's taking a lot of damage, even when he wins. Just for the sake of self preservation, he's got to learn to finish a fight before the third or especially the fifth round.

Right now, he's developing a none too enviable reputation as the "Super Dave Osborne" of the WW division.

I admit, I haven't watched a Fitch fight in awhile as they are incredibly boring. His fight was the only one I didn't watch saturday because I knew it would go to decision and I knew he would win. But then again, GSP is the same. I havent seen him fight in awhile for the same reason as Fitch except it's ten times worse because he's the champion.

GSP tooled Fitch for 5 rounds, he was never in trouble once. GSP knows how to finish, he was so damn close to finishing Fitch and in the Alves fight he got massively injured.

Before that he finished BJ Penn, he TKO'd Serra and submitted Hughes.

I'm mainly using it in the boring sense. I haven't been entertained by him in quite some time. As much as I love takedown spam every 3 seconds and the occasional ground and pound, I get bored of it.

He had zero problems standing with Alves and even dropped him (more than once? I can't remember).


But it's your opinion.
