Fitch: I need the money


"I think one of the mistakes I made in the past was thinking about what this next fight is going to bring me rather than just focusing on the fight, itself," Fitch admitted. "Throw all of my attention, all my energy, into one fight at a time and make sure I get the most out of that one fight. I think that showed. When I do that, that's what happened in the last fight. If I continue that process, it's going to be a lot more great fights like that."

And since he's convinced the UFC's welterweight title is all but locked up through the end of the year, it's what happened in his last fight that provides his current motivation. Fitch turned in a gutsy, impressive effort against the flashy Silva, and he said the potential for more crowd-pleasing efforts is providing all the motivation he needs to grind away at the gym.

"Fight by fight," Fitch said. "Each fight is it's own fight.

"This is a big thing. I need the money. I need the fight. I need to perform, and I love what I do. The motivation is that in itself."
