On paper, it seems like you and Johny Hendricks have a somewhat similar style, with a strong wrestling base and some striking mixed in. How much would you agree with that surface impression?

I think I'm a little bit smoother with mixing my stand-up and wrestling together. I think I'm a much better submission guy than him; I think I've got better jiu-jitsu.

I've got a ton more experience in the fight game. He's an outstanding wrestler, but I think my experience just in MMA and the fight game is what's going to overwhelm him in the fight.

You just mentioned your submissions. We haven't seen that from you very often. How much would you like to apply those skills in the future?

I do it when I can. I think it's difficult when you have opponents who are in the fight to not be finished, and they're not really fighting to win.

I read it as "I'll smother Hendrix" which wouldn't be all too surprising. Phone Post

Dennis Hallman is smoother than both.

That's exactly what I thought, he needs to let his fighting do the talking. Then people will pay attention Phone Post

LOL this is pure irony. Does Fitch watch his own fights?

Really hoping jon can finish and shut some of you guys tfu. He's a top 5 p4p but due to not finishing gets no respect. Even if he finishes Friday people will probably still call it a miracle. Phone Post

Fitch is delusional. He just refuses to accept the fact that the reason he can't finish anyone is because he focuses on control and doesn't do anything to threaten them. No fighter lets another fighter finish them. The fighters who are good at finishing go for it. Fitch doesn't have, or at least is afraid to use, finishing skills. It has nothing to do with the opponents "fighting not to get finished". That's the stupidest spin on reality in the world of MMA.

You can't hate on Fitch for getting his paycheck. If he ever wants to make some big cheddar, everybody including him knows what he has to do. Until then he can keep picking up medium paydays with UD's. Phone Post

I Hendricks has a real good shot to win this. Fitch maybe can't get him down/keep him down. Johnny might be able to win the standup and get some good shots off...


also LOL at fitch critizing anyone for fighting "not to lose" but "not to win". REALLY jon??? you trollin?

I wouldn't be surprised if Hendricks outwrestled Fitch. He doesn't exactly have the best defensive wrestling Phone Post

Large Fun Bags - I am willing to say Jon Fitch will not finish another fight in the UFC



i was a fan of his and i guess i still am. i'm not sure what is up with him. he has the tools i swear but he won't use them i don't know. i thought he could have tkoed penn,it seemed like penn was done,it was a wrap. who knows though i'm not a fighter so who knows what is going on in fitch's head. your right i don't think he will finish another fight.
