Fitch isn't a pure wrestler anymore by any means. I've been saying this for a while actually, Jon is a full fledged grappler lol.

Good job, but I'm just disappointed that my favorite BJJ fighter lost. Munoz is making it harder and harder for me to say that he is overrated and not that good. CB looked like he was tooling him on the ground in their fight. I thought Maia would submit him within a round or two.

Psalm 30:5 "For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning."

Top 3 Favorite Fighters
1. Chuck "The Iceman" Liddell
2. Glover Teixeira
3. Demian Maia

But he just has like 4 subs in 27 fights, 3 of those RNCs which is a really wrestler friendly sub. And not a single sub or finish since 2007.

All his recent wins have been based on top control and GnP, I don't see how he can be called a BJJ Grappler/Wrestler hybrid. The level of BJJ he uses is about the same as any MMA fighter would know and use. IMO he's about as pure a wrestler as you can find in the UFC.
