Jon Fitch Quietly Moving to the Top of UFC Welterweight

Jon Fitch is now on a 14-fight winning streak. This is very impressive especially when he is doing it in the same 170 lb division as George St. Pierre, Karo Parisyan,  Matt Hughes and Matt Serra. So what is next for the challenger that is slowly moving up the ladder?

This is what Fitch (15-2, 1 no-contest) had to say:

“The UFC has the deepest 170-lb. division in the
world… . If you’re in the UFC and you
think you’re at the top of the heap I want to fight you.”

In his last bout at UFC 76 this past weekend, he clearly
demonstrated to spectators that he was dominant throughout all 3 rounds. Even though it was a split decision, in the
end it was clear that Fitch would be declared victorious.  The final scores were Cecil Peoples 30-27
Fitch; Marco Rosales 29-28 Sanchez; And Richard Bertrand judged it 29-28 Fitch.
