MMA Chatter: Jon Fitch On Getting A Title Shot, Serra-GSP, and Changing Weight Classes

Chris Fries and The JDH of Tagg Radio’s The Lights Out Show interviewed top UFC welterweight contender, Jon Fitch on their last show (volume 113). Jon is obviously very interested in this weekend’s Serra/GSP fight, since he will likely be facing the winner. Here are some excerpts from the show.

ON GETTING A TITLE SHOT NEXT

“The only way I could see not getting a title shot is if they push the (Matt) Hughes vs (Matt) Serra fight for a title (if Serra beats St. Pierre).”

ON WHO WILL WIN SERRA/GSP 2

“St. Pierre is going to find a way to put him (Serra) away by the end of the second (round).”

ON MOVING UP IN WEIGHT

Many of you may not know, but Fitch has fought as big as 205, with many of his fights coming in at 185. Here’s what he had to say when asked if he would consider moving up to 185 again when the time was right.

“Yeah. I don’t want to fight the same six guys ten times. A lot of times rematches and trilogies are a waste. You got to mix it up a little bit.”

Jon also speaks out on Karo Parisyan allegedly “ducking” Fitch before and if Karo deserved a title shot had he beaten Thiago Alves.
