The guy's won five straight fights and 21 of 22. He's an amazing 13-1 in the UFC. Yet Dana White won't commit to giving Jon Fitch his second welterweight title shot against the winner of Georges St. Pierre and Josh Koscheck. What's the hold up? Is White worried about selling Fitch in another title fight? Maybe. Since his loss to GSP at UFC 87, he's won all five fights via decision. That makes it seven of his last eight that have gone the distance. One MMA observer was so livid about seeing yet another decision at UFC 117 that they defaced Fitch's Wikipedia page. Is Fitch's style simply too boring?
Fellow fighter Jason High says you're a fool if you call Fitch boring.
Yahoo! Sports' Kevin Iole says Fitch could really help himself by finishing more fights.
Without a commitment before or after UFC 117 from White, Fitch has clearly opened the door for the winner of Jake Shields-Martin Kampmann to grab the next title shot.
