There’s an extremely vocal MMA fan base that’s entirely against the existence of one Jon Fitch. They will do anything to bash on the guy. He can’t finish opponents or sandwiches they say, but I ask you this witty fighter basher: what does it matter as long as he can only be defeated in this stage of his career by a single man? I used to be one of those fans that didn’t respect what he did, dominating opponents and growling into the camera.
I was a fool.
11-11-11 came and the Perdue wrestler created his twitter account: FitchSkyrimTale. That’s when everything changed. It turns out Fitch is one of us. He strums his ukulele while contemplating the finer details of killing a Dragon Priest…he just happens to fight in an extremely deep division against guys that are really hard to finish.
I know what you are thinking, am I really that shallow to declare my fandom for a guy because he likes a videogame? To put it simply, yes. But it’s also because I believe that any logical person can see that Fitch is still the #2 in the welterweight division, and brings very scary problems to the winner of Diaz/Condit. If Fitch gets past Johny Hendricks that is.
Ariel Helwani caught up with the 170 pound Dragon Born for an insightful and thought provoking interview. You should do Jon a favor and really watch the whole thing. If you start it, the least you could do is finish it.
