Jon Fitch Feels With Thiago Stoppage He's Next For GSP

0

Fitch talks to MMAFighting.com:

“If I stop [Thiago Alves], I don't see how they could deny me a shot at GSP. At that point I would have stopped someone twice who GSP couldn't finish in five rounds, so I think that's a very strong argument for me to get a title shot. We're both fighting for another crack at GSP, so we both have something big that we want.”
“Mentally, Alves's matured a great deal in that time period. He was pretty young when we fought…. His wrestling defense is much better and he's harder to take down. He's stronger and I think he's matured physically. Maybe he's a little bit slower. We'll see … I'm a much better athlete than I was a couple years ago. I'm a much improved fighter from when I first fought, and so is he.”
