lol, you're such a faggot, but I should have realized that by your SN, watch gay porn if you like Fitch's "style" so much.

The only positive news for Fitch in this fight is I don't think Silva can KO him faster than Hendricks did.

I agree, I think with age and injuries Fitch is now looking more at the start of the downside of his career than at making another title run

Great matchup. It is a big step up for Silva but I think it is needed. The 170 division is full of wrestlers at the top so it makes sense to throw him in there and see if he can hang. I think Fitch is out of the UFC if he loses which I think he will.
