Never understood the Fitch hate. What's the ultimate objective of a fight? To do as much damage to your opponent without taking any yourself. Fitch is a master at that, it's not his fault he's an amazing wrestler and his opponents can't defend a double leg or learn how to sweep. I've also never understood the "pitter patter" argument normally thrown at wrestlers, punches from full guard from someone like Fitch or Chael probably aren't going to knock people out, they probably aren't going to cut them either and will cause minimal bruising, but you can sure as hell bet that they're hurting the opponent whether the guy can "take a punch" or not.
More power to the guy I say.
Fitch wouldn't be bad if he could finish a fight.He went 8 fights,7 of them wins and they were all decisions where he'd lay on the guy and never attempt to win teh fight within 3 rounds.He's a great grappler of course but he's boring because he doesn't try to win he tries not to lose. His ko loss was excited...because we didn't have to watch 3 rounds of pure grindfest.The guy has so much talent but wont do anything with it, thats why its hard to fully respect the guy. If he could just finish more often , people wont complain.
