Title shot hopes for Jon Fitch seem dim


In a video he recently Tweeted, Jon Fitch showed that he is not an adept standup paddleboarder.

Falling off the paddleboard after three seconds is the least of Fitch's problems. That welterweight title shot that he thought he was in line for? It turns out that the winner of Jake Shields vs. Martin Kampmann will likely get the next shot at the winner of Georges St. Pierre vs. Josh Koscheck.

"If Jake Shields should win against Martin Kampmann, it will probably be him next," [Dana] White said.

That "probably" is a ray of hope for Fitch. Probably means nothing is set in stone. Fitch proposed that he should fight the winner of Shields/Kampmann for the title shot. What would you like to see happen with the UFC welterweight belt?
