    I see the changing of contracts in the future that include being required to fight teammates if a title shot.
    Definitely man, it's quite shocking that the contracts don't already say it (unless someone can correct me/us). If fighters want respect and recognition as the best in the world, they need to suck it up (and as friends/men they should be able to put friendship aside for 25minutes) and do their job.

Fitch is white so he's probably not going to catch chael in a triangle in between having his face smashed

    It's kind of funny that even if his teammate wins the title he's not so sure if that teammate would be able to be more then a fluke champion who loses the title as soon as he earns the belt. It's almost like he concedes the fact that even if Koscheck somehow beats GSP he's going to lose the title right back to GSP anyways.

    My God, even his move to another weight class is dragged out and boring

    I think it's ridiculous that Fitch would compromise his chances of winning a UFC title (surely what all fighters aspire to be) just because he doesn't want to fight his friend, Kos. On one hand, his loyalty to, and respect for Kos is admirable, but on the other it's just plain stupid.

    Sure, Fitch has a tough road ahead of him whichever weight-class he fights in, but to give up the chance of being named the best welterweight mixed martial artist in the world just because you don't want to fall out with your mate? Oh, and to then demote yourself to the middle of the middleweight ladder. That's just ridiculous.

    To reiterate what Dana White has said a million times, mixed martial arts is a sport, and a business. It is a sport, so fighters do not fight because they hate each other, or want to seriously hurt each other. They fight to test their skills against other fighters that are considered at the top of the sport. Simple.

    Exactly, that fight would be boring as hell becuase neither man would be into it. There's only two options for Fitch.

    He can A: fight his friend for a shitload of money but potentially lose a friend and fracture the strong mentality they have built at AKA
    or B: not fight his friends make a little bit less but still a shitload of money and not create internal camp conflict.

    Doesn't seem like a hard decision to me.
