In this history of MiddleEasy, only fifteen articles (including this one) have been written with the word ‘Fitch’ in the title. One hundred and twenty separate articles with ‘Fedor’ in the title have been published on the site. Today marks the first time in the site’s history that we’ve used the word ‘harmony’ in any title. Unfortunately, it wasn’t ‘Harmony Korine’, the director of ‘Gummo‘, ‘Julian Donkey-Boy‘ and the highly underrated ‘Mister Lonely.’ Apparently there’s a movie he created in which David Blaine filmed Harmony going into bars and getting punched and kicked within an inch of his life. It was just too brutal to be distributed, but not too violent to be talked about on MiddleEasy.com. In a sense, Jon Fitch’s UFC career was brutally — confusing. Some could argue that Fitch deserved more than one title shot against Georges St. Pierre. Regardless of what you think, it hasn’t stopped the UFC from severing his contract with the company.
On yesterday’s The MMA Hour, Jon Fitch stated that he never really felt wanted in the UFC, making his comfortability levels at an all-time low.
“I never really felt comfortable or wanted there [in the UFC]. It was just an overall feeling, I never felt like I got a lot of attention that other people did that were doing the same thing as me. But, the important thing is that I am going to be with an organization now that I really feel we’re going to get a chance to do something big.”
He’s talking about the newly launched ‘World Series of Fighting’ based out of Las Vegas, the biggest promotion (aside from UFC) doing professional MMA fights in the state of Nevada. Props to FiveKnuckles for the transcription.
