    Wasn't Fitch to be fighting Palhares at some point or is that just my imagination? I remember reading that Fitch was to fight Palhares but then it switch to Fitch/Shields. Is TPW scheduled to fight anyone? I'd like to see that rematch and TPW is coming off a win so that fight makes sense.

    It would be the just bleed fight of the century.

    Catnarok proportions.

    Weak! I can't ever remember Shields being injured in all these years. What a shitty time for that to happen .

    Hmmm. Newell and Justin G is sweet but I'm not so sure this should be on NBC anymore. They won't put on a good enough card to warrant it and it would be a shame to see them tank cause of it.

    I hope its not on NBC now.

    I dont even know why Fitch vs Shields was a fight that they were trying to go with for the NBC debut in the first place. Guaranteed boring fight. A real channel changer for sure if you're not an MMA fan and just happen to come across it.

    They should sign Tyson Steele to face Fitch! He is also 1-1 in wsof and loose to Carl for the number 1 contender spot a while ago

    Shields vs Fitch was a bad fight for NBC anyway. It's not like either guy is a superstar or have styles which can attract new fans.

    That sucks. Was most likely going to be a grapple hump snooze fest. Shields would beat Fitch otherwise.

    Burkman probably likes it there.

    What other promotion paying comparable money would bend over for him because he whines on social media?

    Fitch dodged a bullet, tbh.

    Shields was going to 30-27 the shit out of Fitch...

    Right? Jake helped kill Strikeforce on CBS, so i'm not even sure why they wanted this fight on here.

    So Fitch will remain on the card vs someone else? Thats good atleast.

    Two fighters nobody likes but that fitch/Shields fight was interesting.

    This card has taken a major hit.

    Sucks- was looking forward to the fight. Wish him a speedy recovery. I like the idea of Burkman taking that slot now.
