Fitch v Shields in a grappling match a number of years back.

Granted, they both may have changed a bit since then, and there was no striking involved, but Shields pretty much tools Fitch from start to finish. Also a few nice moments in there for whoever thinks Shields guard isn't good enough to handle Fitch

After Diaz, Fitch is clearly the next sensible fight for GSP

Half of Fitch's grappling depends on his constan barrage of strikes.

I would like to see this fight as well.

I pick Jake Sheilds to win, by a close decision.

Since he got dominated by GSP (Shields gave GSP a better fight), who has he beaten to prove he's better than all the other guys???

Gono (5ft 7, coming off a loss to Dan Hardy), Thiago (has lost his last 2 to Sanchez and Kampmann), Pierce (hasn't beaten any top 10 fighters ever), Saunders (had been KO'd by Mike ****ing Swick not long before, lost to Dennis Hallman and got cut not long after) - none of these four wins amount to much, winning these fights certainly doesn't elevate a guy above all other welterweights.

Then another decision win over Alves, a feat recently replicated by Rick Story who went on to lose to Charlie Brennerman, and a draw with BJ Penn that many felt he didn't deserve.


Someone explain to me how these fights mean Fitch is regarded as a clear, undisputed division number 2??? I see nothing in these fights to suggest this. He's one of the top guys, nothing more IMO.

Good to see you Jimbob. You need to post more in these parts. The forums going to the dogs.

What kind of chance would Johny Hendricks have against St. Pierre?

According to Rogan, he Ko'd the " #2 ranked" 170 lbs in 12 seconds.
