I dont know if i agree with the whole jon fitch one though. he looks like a pretty sound fighter but i would like to see him in a few more meaningful matches
I totally agree with you, but I think people misunderstood what I was trying to say about Jon Fitch, prior to the Hughes vs GSP fight the UFC was saying this guy was the #1 contender and he was going to get a shot at the belt before GSP. Then GSP took Kos and took the fight against Hughes showed why he is considered great and negated that. but that was what I was trying to say was IMO he needs another victory over a contender to be given that shot at the title. Im not trying to say hes not good, anyone that can string 14 straight wins with half of them in the UFC deserves credit for what he's done. I would just like to see him fight one more quality guy before he gets a shot thats all. That's just me personally I dont think anyone (who hasnt held a title before) should get a title shot without having two recent quality wins.
And to the guy who asked if I had seen the Shogun fight, I havent. I missed that PPV. So maybe I shot my mouth off a bit with Forrest. But I also heard that Shogun was in horrible shape and it was a case of Forrest being a better fighter on that night and not necessarily the most talented fighter winning. Everyone has their bad days. But Forrest still beat a guy that was in the top 5 LHWs in the world. So I'll leave it to his fight with Rampage to see whether or not I'm right. If he wins or puts in a good showing I'll give him credit. But I think hes gonna get beat to sleep.
