Do you want some cheese to go with that whine?

Today in clueless fighters not understanding why they aren’t getting title shots: Mike Kyle and Jon Fitch. First: Kyle, who is upset Scott Coker didn’t have permission from Zuffa overlords to declare his fight with Rafael Feijao a #1 contender fight. Via USA Today:

I think it’s bullcrap. You heard what he said — maybe I’ll be the No. 1 contender. I haven’t lost any 205-pound fights. I definitely believe that I’m the No. 1 contender. I was told before I’d be the No. 1 contender. It is what it is. I’m really upset by it. It makes me really not even want to fight.

You know what makes me really want to see Kyle go through with that? His maiming of another fighter after a stoppage in the WEC. Kyle being one of the only two people in the history of the UFC to bite someone in the cage. Any time he wonders why he isn’t getting the push he thinks he deserves, he should consider the fact that he’s lucky he wasn’t pushed out of the sport completely after those incidents.

Now onto Jon Fitch, who’s still confused as to why he was never offered a title shot after beating Thiago Alves at UFC 117…


“There is a little bit of frustration and motivation in a situation like that,” Fitch said. “It’s kind of like having the rug pulled out from under you. You are told you are getting one thing and I felt like I had one of the best performances of my career that night. Then you don’t get the title shot and it sucks, but you can’t let yourself worry about those things too much.

“If people think that I’m not beating people up in there, all they have to do is look at my opponent’s face after the fight. If I’m not doing work in there, then how did their face get so f***ed up?”

I’ve already explained the Jon Fitch Title Snub situation several times before, so instead I will just present Jon with this anniversary cake. It’s a bit early (the actual milestone is June 12th, 2012) but why wait:

    oh jon fitch… nobody likes you
    mike kyle will never be champion because we cant tell what he is.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    I’m sure Showtime will have Kyle fight for a title right after they hire their new head of PR:  Nick Diaz.

    As for Fitch, I cover that issue in the comments of the previous threads Ryan links to, but ShortBus hit it out of the park, rode a bike to the parking lot to fetch it, and then spiked it through Fitch’s fucking windshield.

    its a lie

    Kyle has been a fuckin prick on wheels so many times, at least rivaling Yvel and probably worse, that he must also be clinically insane to expect anyone to be compassionate to a poor me story out of his mouth!

    Kyles only avenue towards a title in a sane world, would be to just beat every other man walking the earth IMO.

    Fitch is a great fighter.
    Great, not necessarily exciting.

    You 13 years olds ruin MMA for everyone else.

    But he isn’t the only one that just cannot beat GSP.

    Hopefully Chael shits on silva and retires him,
    then GSP can go up without shithead 13 year olds expecting him to immediately take on a prick from justifiably 2 weight classes above him.

    TheHineyHappening is like CRS and Snowden had a baby with AngryChina as the surrogate.

  • Rodriguez

    “Kyle being one of the only two people in the history of the UFC to bite someone in the cage.”

    If anyone wonders who the other is, it’s Wes Sims
