Jon Fitch Feels Josh Koscheck Should Be Fighting GSP, Not Hardy

MMAWeekly.com spoke with Jon Fitch regarding this weekends 170lb title match between Georges St. Pierre and Dan Hardy. Fitch doesn't feel Hardy has earned a shot at the title and instead feels his AKA teammate Josh Koshceck should have been in line:

“It's kind of disrespectful to a lot of the other fighters in the weight class that got passed by. I think Koscheck should be fighting for the title right now. I think him and GSP should have been fighting at UFC 111. It's nothing against Dan Hardy, he's a great fighter, a great guy, and I think some day he was going to get a title shot anyways. The fact of the matter is he's only four fights deep in the UFC. I had to win eight fights to get a title shot. There's a lot of other guys who had to put in a lot more work to get there. For a lot of the guys watching and sitting around, it's discouraging. What exactly do you have to do to get a title shot?”
