Fitch, who was a former Top 10 UFC fighter, has been training extremely hard for this fight, as it is his first title shot since he fought George Saint Pierre back in 2008, despite going on a 5-fight win streak since then. Fitch discussed his opponent’s strengths and weaknesses, and explained what exactly sets him apart from all of the other competition that Palhares has faced in the past.
Jon describes himself as a “grinder,” who puts relentless pressure on his opponents and makes them work for the entire time that they are in the octagon with him. He hopes to make this fight vs. Palhares as uncomfortable for him as possible, and predicted the fight to be nothing short of “carnage.”
