Yeah, where IS Jon Fitch’s title shot???

Jon Fitch is once again acting all confused as to why he isn’t buried underneath a big pile of title shots and fan appreciation.

“It is frustrating because the truth of the matter is, I don’t understand what the problem is. No one’s come up to me and said ‘we don’t like what you’re doing. Do this differently.’ I’ve gotten absolutely zero feedback about what’s going on,” Fitch said. “I have no idea what’s happening or why certain guys are getting title shots. It’s a complete mystery to me and no one’s approached me and said anything about my style or what I’m doing good or bad.”

You know what’s frustrating to me? Reading headlines like “Jon Fitch has no clue why his GSP rematch hasn’t come yet.” It’s this kind of thing that sets you off in a semi-epileptic seizure slapping yourself in the forehead going DUR DURRR DURRRRRRRR DUUUUUUUUURRR.

Let’s lay this out yet again: Jon Fitch hasn’t finished an opponent since 2007. Jon Fitch has shown no new skills or abilities since getting trounced by Georges St Pierre in 2008. Jon Fitch lost that fight so badly that one judge scored it 50-43. Jon Fitch almost lost to a lightweight in his last fight.

Tada. The Mystery of the Missing Title Shot is solved. Send the bill to Scotland Yard, care of Sherlock Fucking Holmes.

    Holy shit, Ryan.  Bra-fucking-vo!

    I guess this is clear as day to everyone not named Jon Fitch ffs. I used to have a lot of respect for this guy even with his style and non finishing ability but his latest statements about not fighting anyone who hasn’t won a title and now this crap I am just starting not to care.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Entirely agreed Cap.  I respect his work and submission defense but he’s just fucking delusional.

    Fitch will always be at the bottom of the list for getting GSP. It’s not impossible, but if there is anything remotely more interesting to the UFC, Fitch will not get the shot. At this point, Fitch’s best hope is that someone pulls out of a GSP bout and he’s asked to step in on short order.

    Why? Let me the count the ways:

  • malonth

    1. Fitch is a boring fighter. It would be hard to sell Fitch v. GSP II. And if Fitch won, do you really want a guy like Fitch as champ?

    2. Fitch is not considered a “company guy”.

    3. Fitch got his ass kicked the last time by GSP and does not look to have improved.

    4. Fitch could only get draw against BJ Penn. Fitch knew the title was on the line and put in a crap “conservative” performance. See 1.

  • Letibleu

    Dont forget he was told if he wanted an insta title shit he just needs to fight josh

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    Kos has said he won’t fight Fitch even for the title.  No matter what – he’d even quit first.

  • Letibleu

    There are a few fighters that will beat Fitch now. He will be made to lose a few and then he will disappear into oblivion for our collective betterness.

    I used to enjoy Fitch fights because I always hoped someone had solved him. I always tuned in with the hopes to watch this human being get pummeled. He let me down too many times and now I don’t care.

    In 10 years there will be a documentary on how he could have been the best and because he got screwed he faded into nothingness and nobody noticed.

    Fitch is to MMA what Dick is to Fightlinker. Nuff said on both of those.

  • Billytk

    I know Fitch gets shit on a lot here but the truth is other then GSP he beats every other WW out there so he kind of has a point about deserving title contention

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    So far he hasn’t beat anyone currently “ranked” in the top ten, but take that for what you will.  He drew against Beej, and the guys in his last streak of decisions were ranked highest at 11 in Thiago Alves.

    Personally, I wouldn’t mind seeing him fight GSP again as their last fight was SPECTACULAR-R-R-R-R-R, but I will not tolerate his whiny dipshittery.

  • Oontyex

    yeh, so true,
    not only has he put on super lame fights since the GSP one – he’s ducking the top guys.

    If he could get a finish in a fight against, condit, ellenberger or rumble would help him get his chance, but i wouldnt hold my breath

  • glassjawsh

    ^ all of those fights are made the more interesting since BJ came out with his “Fitch a Fitch: a Guide to Jon Fitching Jon Fitch” blue print for successfully beating that tool.

  • DJ ThunderElbows

    I think Rumble might rape him.  I mean he would literally hold him down and donkey rape the vegetarian shit outta him.

    I’d love to see it if Fitch weren’t’ such a cowardly little Fitch about fighting other guys in his weight class.  I still can’t believe he said he’d only fight BJ, Hughes, GSP, Serra and Newton.  Fucking redonkulous.

  • iamphoenix

  • Reverend Clint
