Jon Fitch Unsure If He Deserves Title Shot Following UFC 127

He had hoped to put a stamp on his position atop the UFC welterweight rankings this past weekend when he took on the legendary BJ Penn at UFC 127 but now, following a majority draw, Jon Fitch is unsure about his place in the division and doesn't know if he deserves a title shot:

“I don't know right now [if I deserve a title shot]. I'm awfully disappointed with my performance. I don't know. I expect more [from myself]. I should have put on a better show and performed better tonight to make that a question no one had to ask. So I don't know. I have to leave it up to the bosses and see what they want to do with me…. The diet worked out great. It had nothing to do with my performance. Actually, I didn't even get tired the whole fight. There was just something holding me back. I don't know. I should have turned it on a lot sooner.”
