Now besides all that, here he is bitching about a hungry Shields finally coming to the UFC to prove himself (after years of anticipation) and he acts like the guys "skipping in line". He's been proving himself more than worthy of a contender over the past five years with a solid resume at welter weight AND middle weight. So in my eyes if he does take out Kampman, he is deff the number 1 contender for the title. Fitch had his turn, he failed. Now give Shields his turn, due to the fact that he is possibly the last major threat to GSP's reign who hasn't already had a chance.
Yup...because Fitch isn't willing to fight for the title (if Kos gets it) and I thought he said he was going to change weight classes if Kos wins the title.
Because Fitch's plans rely on the outcome of another fight, I am sure Dana isn't happy and doesn't plan on letting him wait to decide what he is going to do. Zuffa likes to start their advertising and planning early....I highly doubt Fitch is going to wait till Kos vs GSP, then wait at least another 8 weeks after that to challenge GSP. Fitch might not mind the wait, but Dana does.
Now if Fitch were to be 'injured' circumstances might change....hopefully that doesn't happen and Fitch gets scheduled to fight someone soon, or tells Zuffa he is going to change weight classes.
