The view from Fitchville

Jon Fitch gives Full Contact Fighter his take on the 12 second knockout he suffered at the hands of Johny Hendricks last December:

“I think I could have continued in that fight. I think I got hit twice, but I was conscious. I saw the ref jumping on me, and I was like ‘what are you doing?’ I knew what was going on the whole time. I just lost half a second from the time that he hit me to the time that I hit the ground. That was the only time I was out. It wasn’t a clean, full knockout,” he said. “I just want to make sure that if I’m out, I’m out. I want to make sure that the ref isn’t making a mistake. If I get hurt from it, so be it, but we’re talking about a lot of money, whether you win or lose. It’s a big hit to the bank account if the ref steps in even a little bit early,” he continued.  In light of the way his fight with Hendricks unfolded, Fitch says he’d happily agree to a rematch down the road.

    I’d never fully appreciated what nice job Mazagatti does of getting to 1/2 butterfly guard there. Nice posture.

    He experienced Inception.

    Leti’s right, Mazz just gave him a kick. Unfortunately it was only after the dain bramage.

  • Symbul

    Yeah… no. That’s not gonna fly, Jon.

    The real issue with Fitch is him claiming he has to be a “showman” when I’ve never (even on this bitchfest of a site) seen a single fan ask for him to be a showman. I’ve only seen people ask him to actually put forth the effort of risk to finish his opponents.
