He literally called a time out lol
Shields was on a 15 fight win streak, his streak contained a whos who of both the WW and MW divisions. To this day Shields is one of GSP’s best wins imo.
Yeah, that's why he was in the UFC as long as he was. No one not named GSP could beat him. And then, the first non-championship setback he had, instantly cut by Dana, who couldn't stand Fitch.
Fitch is a great fighter. He beat Rory. Should've been able to retire as a champ of Bellator.
People criticize his style but it is very effective most of the time.
Very likable dood too.
You are either against cheating or not.
Being selective only shows hypocrisy.
And let me note the following before my words are twisted: I am merely playing devil's advocate here.
And second round a draw.
Fitch was cut because he refused to sign the contract to the ufc fighting video game (can't remember how its called) that asked him to give lifetime rights to his name to that game. Such a draconian contract.
Winner : Fitch.
You live in a world of delusions and hypocrisy.
The WW division was still 3 times more stacked than Silva's MW division.
Lol no it wasn't, Dan Hardy being ranked top 5 proved that as false already.
The gray area here is whether GSP was even aware of his corner’s error.
In that minute between rounds I highly doubt your mind is on anything but the task at hand and that guy mere seconds away from trying to take your head off.
Come on, man!
If he did not know, he would have publically fired that guy the second they saw the images of him doing it, because it was just too blatant.
But I don't want to turn this into a very old argument that will lead to nothing.
I just dislike people pointing fingers to other fighters like GSP does not have a glass ceiling...
Hardy was better than half the peoples Silva beat during his reign.
Have you won 16 fights in a row?
I still think the Fitch fight is what changed GSP's fighting style permanently and ruined his confidence. He beat the ever loving shit out of Fitch, was actively trying to finish him, but he couldn't. This was after Serra. From then on he was clearly point fighting.
Fitch had a good streak going into this fight, obviously, but I believe only half of those wins (8?) were in the UFC. Somebody mentioned Shields had a big streak too, but only 1 of his 15 were in the UFC as well.
It was a beating of the ages, where the #1 of the division stomped the clear #2.
It was like a man beating a child
He beat Alves before he ever fought GSP, by KO no less.
Jon definitely wasn't the clear number 2 because Alves was still considered number 2 in the division. But more importantly his title shot was laced in controversy on here due to the fact that Fitch did not fight top 10 opponents with the exception of Sanchez who might've been top 5-7 at the time depending who you ask.
He did beat Thiago Alves in 2006 but Alves was green. Alves was 100% absolutely not in the top 10 when they fought.
Lmao you don't even believe that
