    Once again it has nothing to do with style. Fitch cant beat GSP in any aspect of MMA (he actually gets outcalssed in all of aspects imo). The two fights (Cain/JDS and GSP/Fitch) are completely different situations.
    One thing JDS has over Fitch is he beat his opponent once

    With that said Fitch still got screwed wither you liked his style or not. If every body had to compile that many wins for a shot we wouldn't have title fights except by the decade.

    If Fitch was a striker, even a boring striker he would have already got his rematch with GSP. The fact he is deemed a boring wrestler and keeps his mouth shut instead of talking trash (Sonnen) is why he will not a rematch anytime soon. The whole he got his ass kicked thing does not apply. If Liddell can have a rematch with Couture then anyone can have a rematch.

    Pretty much the only thing keeping Fitch from getting another shot at GSP is because the "fans" don't like his style. If Fitch was a striker and out boxing people instead of wrestling him he would have already had his rematch. Seriously, Dan Hardy got a title shot but we can't give Fitch a rematch? Fitch even with his loss to Hendricks is still a Top 5 WW that will maul just about any WW not named GSP or Hendricks. If GSP beats Hendricks (the Diaz fight is never going to happen so no one get excited about it) and Fitch wins another one or two I think he should get the next shot.

    I think he'll get another shot if he keeps putting on entertaining bouts, but he puts himself in far greater danger. If Fitch gets past Maia, I'd book him in a number one contender bout while GSP finishes up his business with Diaz and Hendricks, maybe even book him for the SF title against Nate in the meantime....IF he gets past Maia.

    not without 1 or 2 wins...?

    the picture was just the icing on the cake that was GSP's 5 round beating of Jon Fitch.

    I'm not sure if he would get a title fight even if he beat Hendricks. Dana doesn't like him. I personally don't like Fitch as he's a boring fighter but if he should be right in the thick of things for a title shot. It's been over 4 years since he's fought GSP.
