    Fitch should know he's in this position of not getting a title shot. It should not surprise this man. I'm going to venture and say that he won't get a title shot until GSP leaves the division. Which I am totally fine with. Fitch is a good fighter with undoubted skill. It's just I don't see any type of progression in his style. GSP would dismantle him and we would be treated to the same fight as before. no thanks.

    ok guys yeah he got clipped pretty good. but other than looking rocked, he still won regardless and followed it up with a good win over a better striker Alves. i was just making a point it was a good 5 fight win streak and other getting clipped he was just dominant, for the most part. and no one other than shields and gsp whos really going to beat him? he'll get his shot someday or another.

    Uh the Pierce fight was a 29-28 UD and Pierce had Fitch EXTREMELY hurt and rocked in the last round of that fight. I've never seen Fitch wobbled like that before.

    I wasn't saying they were not good wins, It is an impressive streak and normally i would not argue that he deserves a title shot, however as i said in the rest of my post, He has shown nothing in terms of development. He has not shown that he can change the outcome in another GSP fight so from Dana's chair why would you put that fight together

    UFC 130 "The Replay of UFC 87" GSP vs Fitch II - i just dont see how you sell it, more money involved in other fights for GSP

    He was in pretty big trouble against Mike Pierce. Wasn't a good fight for Fitch.

    Looks like some good wins to me

    i'm not convinced that he has earned another shot. Don't get me wrong i like Fitch, He is a good fighter, better than most, but He hasn't done anything to show that another GSP fight would be any different. from a business perspective, they cannot sell GSP Fitch as a new threat, The only exciting thing about that fight is what new shit is GSP bringing to the table.

    For fitch to be relavent again he needs to do something to highlight that he has improved drastically from his last title shot and i dont think he has. Dana will want to put new challenges in front of GSP because they will make more business sence
