I really don't know, there wresting is vastly different, I think Kos is a better striker, Fitch is the better grappler. Its a fight I would love to see.

I'd pick Josh to win in a fight vs. Fitch, as style wise he beats Fitch.

However, I'd definitely say Fitch is the better all around fighter.

hmmm I voted equal because for some reason I feel Fitch is the better fighter matched up with most oponents, but I see Kos beating Fitch.
They both suck at striking, Kos has more power and Fitch is a slight bit more technical so 50/50 there. Kos has better wrestling & Fitch has better BJJ or Gerilla JJ whatever. Fitch also seems to be the more intelligent fighter. Overall skill I would say Kos, and he's also more athletic but since he's kind of a dumbass he fights below his talent.
Fitch should be a harder fight for most fighters, but I also think Kos is a very bad theoretical matchup for Fitch.

Fitch is better in most, if not all, areas. The only thing that Kos has on Fitch is athleticism. If they fought I would make Fitch a 2:1 favorite. I think their wrestling would cancel out, and Fitch would out point Kos on the feet. Even if it did hit the mat Fitch is a superior grappler.

Technically speaking you may be true but Kos is faster, more explosive and more powerful. Its hard to argue that Kos isn't much more effective striker than Fitch.

Kos has more KO power, only real advantage I see him having. The rest is about equal or tipped to Jon.

They are both great wrestlers, don't give me that college wrestling records bullshit, it gives you a base, doesn't account for much more once you get to their level. Their wrestling is different for sure, but I would say equal.

Striking is even, maybe a slight nod to Fitch. And Jon's ground game is ahead of Kos' by a lot.

Thank you. I thought I was taking crazy pills.

Kos' 'power' is one dimensional, and Fitch has a chin. If they were to fight, Kos wouldn't land that looping right, and if he did, it wouldn't matter.

Kos, might be the more explosive wrestler and could win via grind, but if it stayed standing the advantage would be Fitch's.

Fitch follows gameplans. Koscheck is more talented but tends to lose focus and just start swinging. Fitch by UD.

Fitch.

Better at following gameplans, tougher, better chin, very mentally strong.

Kos has power doubles but Fitch is a smart wrestler, and is a great, powerful grappler who is a much more active ground and pounder than Kos.

Much more technical striker and has a very sturdy chin, although the speed and power of Koscheck always makes things interesting.
