UFC welterweight top contender Jon Fitch already got a crack at champion Georges St-Pierre’s title, however he is patiently waiting for another shot at the division’s king. In the meantime, he’ll just continue to stockpile victories.
“My eyes are set on a rematch with GSP for the belt,” Fitch said of his ultimate goal. “I want to fight him for the belt again.”
Fitch was riding a 15-fight winning streak entering their initial title fight at UFC 84 in August of 2008, prompting St-Pierre to state at the time, “Jon Fitch is the toughest opponent of my career.”
Fitch was no joke in his first-ever title fight. Sure he was dominated throughout the five round affair, but he lasted the whole 25 minutes.
“I had my shot and I lost,” Fitch said. “That’s just how it goes. That’s how the business goes. You climb the top of that ladder, and if you don’t win, you get put back, and you have to find your way back to the top.”
We will just have to wait and see when the UFC calls his number again.
