Default Re: It's one loss,still a fan of Mitchell.

I think in some ways this highlights the problem when trying to develop a guy who does not have time on his side, and an extensive amateur backround.

He has to be brought along and matched with fighters that can teach him something, but at the same time, a loss can set the guy back in a big way. It's a tricky balancing act.
If Mitchell were 22 or 23, then a loss would not be that bad. But 30, with no amateur backround, a lot of hype behind him and the pressures it brings, and fighting only two, maybe three times a year...can anyone see the problem?

I'm still a fan too...but realistically it doesn't bode well for Seth.
