Back when Jon Fitch was living in a delusional state where he was one fight away from title glory, he made this statement:
“I’m at a point in my career where I need to be fighting main events and main event fighters,” Fitch said. “And if you don’t have a belt, currently, or you haven’t owned a belt in the UFC, I’m not really interested.”
UFC brass, being such huge Jon Fitch fans, ended up giving him non-champ Johny Hendricks, who knocked his ass out in 12 seconds flat. Next up for Fitch: Erick Silva. He might not have a belt now, but does it make Fitch feel better that he will someday?
