Jonathan Fitch is an American MMA fighter, who received his Guerilla jiu-jitsu black belt under Dave Camarillo (the founder of Guerilla jiu-jitsu) on July 2, 2008. Fitch started his MMA career as a light heavyweight, but then dropped down to fight as a middleweight. He ultimately dropped down to welterweight, where he lost to Georges St. Pierre in a title fight. Prior to his fight with GSP, Fitch had an eight fight winning streak, tying Royce Gracie for the most consecutive wins in the UFC (later Anderson Silva beat Gracie and Fitch's record).
