We all get why Jon Fitch ain’t getting a title shot any time soon. It’s not just because he’s the fight equivalent of a heavy dose of Ambien. He also got his ass kicked from post to post the last time he stepped into the cage with Georges St Pierre. It was the kind of performances that leave about as many questions as ‘What would happen if Dan Hardy got another shot at St Pierre’? The non-shot we all understand. But this act against Jon by UFC brass makes a bit less sense:
When’s your documentary going to be released?
We’re still working on that, because we did not get the footage cleared from the UFC. We actually have to go back and the footage has to be cut. Two minutes of footage has to be cut. We have to redo the sound and the editing minus the two minutes of footage. It could be a little while, because they have to raise more money to get that done.
What reason did UFC give for not releasing the footage?
Were you surprised?
No, I wasn’t. (chuckles)
I’m sure it probably doesn’t help that AKA is always sitting on the very edge of Dana White’s good graces. But for Christ’s sake … making it even harder for UFC fighters to promoting themselves seems kinda dumb.
