Don't really care but at the same time i feel for him, he wanted that second title shot so bad.

First two responses were good.

To quote Matt Mitrione; 'Officials are banning air traffic control staff from watching Jon Fitch fights to avoid falling asleep on the job'.

No loss really, hopefully BJ will fight someone else now.

This sucks for him.
I can only wish him speedy recovery and get well soon.

But like Xeb pointed out: this is gonna affect him a lot.
Not just because he isn't fighting and/or training.

But on a psychological level: it's gonna eat him from the inside. He will watch the WW unfold, guys fighting, evolving, new contenders appear on the horizon...and that's gonna eat him.

And when he returns he has to start lower in the ranks compared to now.

Koscheck knows best. He said it's a b*tch, not being able to fight/train: there is nothing to do all day long.

“It’s boring as hell,” Koscheck said. “I can see why people want to fight for longer than ever. I’m like, ‘What the hell do I do?’”
I guess Fitch and Koscheck will become best buddies now.

PS: AKA is really hurting right now: Cain, Kos and Fitch out injured...OUCH!

Fortunately for him BJ is also out, they'll likely fight again for number one contendership. Thing about Fitch is that he got his ass handed to him in the GSP fight, but other than that he's beaten everyone, so maybe he had a bad day? Fitch went a full 5 rounds of getting his ass kicked, most people would've given up. Jon's deserved a title shot for awhile now, but if he has to beat BJ(again, since he won the first fight BS judges) then so be it. What's he to do? He has the reputation of putting on boring fights when he fights just like Shields and GSP, he's just not as charming as they are and/or vocal so he takes all the wrap for the boring fighters in the WW division haha. Without Jon Fitch around for 6 months people are gonna start talking about how boring Shields/GSP fights are.

Too bad for Jon. Met him at a fan expo, really nice guy.

With this 6 months off, it may give him time to shift that damn documentary out to the cinema!

Hopefully he fully recovers!

Don't be scared homie!
