    Oh Yah AWESOME…He is one of the GREATEST welterweights of all time!!

    • stonch says:

      fitch is the most boring fighter in the ufc, the fighter that grinds the most while doing the least amount of damage at the same time, some of the worst stand up and is a huge pussy!

    • stonch says:

      oh and btw a half decent jiu jitsu practitioner will destroy a straight wrestler on the ground any day.. and jiu jitsu takedowns are just as effective.. I know because i train

      • WrestlingRules says:

        LMFAO…oh man are you cluuuuuuueeeless. a BJJ beating a top level wrestler. ….Well never mind your too far gone to waste my breath…..Geez is this guy for real

        • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

          Hey Mr lay n pray (wrestler boy) prob only ever wore a singlet in pee wee wrestling when he was 5. I would bet any amount of money by my observation of getting on a few times a day that seeing you on here ean and every time there is no way in hell you could possibly have a job.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Hey GroF as usual your analysis is all twisted. you’re a little freak aren’t you? Ever heard of summer break or getting fired or perhaps vacation??? But you know you might have just hit the head on the nail and realized that I have never wrestled before much less collegiately…and I don’t go to gym and wrestle top wrestlers and I don’t box and I’m just a fat ass like you with nothing better to do but pretend I have a brain and an opinion. So keep it to yourself please don’t blow my cover……yikes….

        • Mc says:

          Wrestling sucks that’s why there is no pro wrestling, well real wrestling. Nobody wants to watch a guy dry hump another guy for 15-25mins. If Fitch used his wrestling to actually get dominate position and do some damage then maybe he’d have more that these couple fans w/ wrestling in their name. But the fact that he lays on top doing nothing except avoiding the real fight makes him the most BORING fighter EVER and that’s why everyone was so happy to see another wrestler that doesn’t lay n pray knock him the fuck out!! That was Fitch’s best fight.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Though I STRONGLY disagree with your statement that wrestling sucks because in reality, it actually is the PUREST form of human competition!!. But I do agree that real Greco-Roman or Collegiate-type wrestling would not appeal to the current mentaility that exists in today’s red meat mma zombie circles. So I yield to that point.

          Now though to your point that THE GREAT ONE (formerly known as Fitch) does not dominate his opponents, What the F is wrong with you dude?? He grabs these sissy ass fighters and slams them to the ground and COMPLETELY dominates them and they cry like little babies because they can’t get up and want their referee mommy to let them up. AND you support those cry baby fighters. Shit they should take points away from these bitches who can’t get up!! Boring WHAT are you drunk every time you watch him?? That is PURE and COMPLETE domination what more do you want??? You know you are a brain dead zombie if you don’t think that is exciting…..

          Now Hendricks…come on that dude got lucky, it can happen and the top 5ers are going to send this guy to Bellator. He’s toast. But I do like him even though his wrestling ain’t that great.

    • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

      wrestler boy (mr unemployed) yeah you Fitch was talking to you when he said he wanted to let all his fans know why he CHICKENED OUT against Simspson who would have been ahorrible matchup because no way in hell Fitch would have been able to implement his lay n pray. Simpson has ben fighting monsters at 185 who out weighed him by 20 lbs and he would have ragdolled Fitch and landed his big right hand just like Hendricks did. I’m sure Fitch’s coach cary bob cook has instructions right now from Fitch to find him a much better matchup maybe ven aperfect matchup with a turtle like Alves which Fitch gained his unwarranted #2 ranking year ago. Yep UFC has Fitch’s number and no more perfect matchups to complement his lay n pray. Anyone who really knows Simpson knows his grappling is top notch and obviously Joe Silva knew he was perfect guy to shut down Fitch lay n pray and send Fitch packing

      • WrestlingRules says:

        From now on twisted sister, please refer to Mr. Fitch as THE GREAT ONE. Any other reference to one of the GREATEST ww of ALL time is very rude and disrespectful. You will offend me and ALL who know THE GREAT ONE as THE GREAT ONE…..

        • GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

          Fitch knew Simpson was a bad matchup and with having one foot out the door of UFC Fitch is going to wait and pick anotehr turtle like Alves

        • WrestlingRules says:

          You know GroTGO I have asked you nicely to call THE GREAT ONE, THE GREAT ONE and you refuse to be cooperative and continue to disrespect THE GREAT ONE and all of us who understand the he is One of the GREATEST ww of Alll time by being obstinate…..Now I know that I have called you twisted sister and delusional and other less than flattering labels, but I figured that one like you that is sooooo disrespectful, it is even in your title which I have asked you nicely to change it to GET RID OF THE GREAT ONE (forever) that is so ugly that you would understand that a slip of an ad hominen here or there is ok….I hope so dumbass.

    • stonch says:

      oh and btw the gracies proved several times that a top level wrestler (as good as they are at what they do!) cannot beat a top level jiu jitsu fighter. they have challenges with some really high level highly qualified wrestlers and the wrestlers got destroyed. youtube it moron. you must be a shitty wrestler

      • WrestlingRules says:

        First, that was before anybody knew how to defend bjj 15 years ago!!!…now time warp your little brain to today…EVERYBODY knows how to defend bjj. Stupid says what stupid is…..

  2. Wrestler66 says:

    Hope he gets back soon top fighter !

    • WrestlingRules says:

      Absolutely!! I hope he works on his boxing and comes back to take out Condit, GSP, Kampman whoever is there. He is a beast. He takes these weak ass fighters and throws them down and dominates.

      • Wrestler66 says:

        For sure I love how the UFC just let guys skip the que to get title shots before when Fitch was clearly the #1 contender so that Fitch did not smash their title runs Condit Hardy Shields would have all been beat by Fitch

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Absolutely, I hope he stays mentally strong cuz he would rag doll these pussys…White F’ed him cuz White is a biased sob and doesn’t understand the power and complete DOMINANCE that wrestling has in mma. It should be called the Ultimate Pussy ASS fighting championships. Until one of these top fighters can out wrestle Fitch and get up when he plants their ass on the canvas, then they don’t deserve shit!! Only one almost two people dominated Fitch and that was GSP and BJ for two rounds….That was only from training with Hughes on and off for a couple of months, Could you have imagined what BJ would have done if he had trained wrestling his whole career instead of so much bjj??? Scary….

  3. Keep Fitch (Forever) says:

    I hope Fitch gets better and comes back stronger. I think his style of fighting is awesome.

  4. momo says:

    his most exciting fight was when he got KOed but johnny rofl.

  5. Ko_King says:

    Lay and pray!

  6. danielrchargers says:

    So this is what Fitch fans are like… people actually enjoy watching this guy? or is it because he has so few fans you guys feel that you can be those few who can be his testicle sack parasites.
    ha i really don’t know what people see in this guy’s fighting style.

    • WrestlingRules says:

      Hey I resent that comment and you offended me greatly…Now that being said, it is because you are blinded by your bias because you have never wrestled and or fought. Because if you had, you would understand the complete power and dominance wrestling has over any of these rag dolls….So now quit being a parasite on the balls of these weak ass fighters who can’t beat Fitch!!!

    • Wrestler66 says:

      I really don’t think you can appreciate what Fitch does until you train yourself that type of top control is real hard to come by and avoid top level grapplers submission attempts like vs BJ Penn. Not the most exiting but uses his tools to great effect and dominates guys even though they prepare for weeks no to be stuck on their back. Fitch is a hardworking dude and gets shit for it from casuals who don’t properly understand the sport

      • danielrchargers says:

        bro i train in San Pedro Cal, 2nd street at pedro sorianos bjj since i was 8.
        and i train kickboxing at harborkickboxing in San Pedro, come down if you’re in the area.
        i also have taken a MMA class that Incorporated wrestling and its TOUGH, and i mean TOUGH, you gas in an unbelievably fast amount of time. believe me BUT THIS IS THE UFC/MMA AND ALL HE DOES IS WRESTLE, fuck fitches so called “fighting” style.

        • danielrchargers says:

          Fitch as an athlete… you cannot deny him for how hard he has worked… but with all time time he as put into his game, he has not once gone into the octagon with a gameplan that involved him standing mano y mano with another man and trade then get a take down and slap on a submission. NEVER he just runs in there throws some unimpressive strikes, get the man to the ground… CONTROLS HIM DOMINANTLY and SOMEHOW RARELY gets a finish… its FUCKING weird!

        • danielrchargers says:

          But i do apologize for saying its wrong to be a fan of any fighter! my bad

        • Wrestler66 says:

          I don’t think he is a great natural talent but he sure as hell works hard sticks to what he’s good at and gets results that’s what I like about him

        • WrestlingRules says:

          I see this a bit different. I DO see him as HUGE natural talent and the fact that he works hard does not negate the fact that these pussy’s can’t escape from his natural dominance. I know TOP TOP wrestlers and none are as naturally great as Fitch. If they were they would be in mma. He is naturally talented and mentally stronger than anybody but perhaps GSP and maybe BJ when he was hungry. Many people on here who don’t understand the power and dominance of wrestling want to water down mma by having the refs let up a ragdolled fighter who can’t escape and is weaker so that Fitch can grab him and plant him over and over again. Doesn’t make sense. Maybe they should take a point away for not trying to escape from being dominated!! Geez, I’m just sayin’

        • Wrestler66 says:

          Nice one on the BJJ dude I have had one MMA fight and w

        • Wrestler66 says:

          Cont lol ….. Won got my blue belt in BJJ but no purple yet cs I use wrestling mostly haha ….. Do you have your Black belt yet ?

        • WrestlingRules says:

          I mean this with all due respect to you and your coaches and I would fight for your right to do what you love, BUT if you want to really get good at fighting give up that bjj stuff and go wrestle full time and box. You will be so dominant in your gym, you would be amazed. If you don’t want to fight and just be as good as you can be in bjj then fine. But you will never really know power until you wrestle. NOTHING is greater than physical power derived from wrestling. Everything else is white noise…..

        • Trent says:

          Wow this may be the first time on this site where people are actually being real. How I feel about Fitch is I respect him for his accomplishments but his fighting style is not to my liking. No big deal!

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Fair enough, at least its honest, but I challenge you to see that taking the BEST ww’s down and keeping them down IS a HUGE unique ability that NOBODY can do except perhaps GSP. That is amazing isn’t it?? Go wrestle for 6 months and you’ll understand. Now that being said, I do wish he would have trained better and more boxing, he would have been champ by now!!

  7. Xaninho says:

    I would rather hear him talk about his release from the UFC!

    • WrestlingRules says:

      Release…Did you mispeak?? One of the GREATEST WW of ALL time. surely you jest??

      • Xaninho says:

        He doesn’t fight. He’s too scared to make an attempt to actually win the fight and rather waits for the bell to ring after 15 mins of humping his opponent. Referees need to stand those humpers up much sooner so they can’t avoid the fight anymore.

        Apart from the occassional wrestling diehard, nobody wants to see him on a fightcard. Simply because it’s called a fightcard and all Fitch comes to do is lay on top of his opponent and wait for the bell.

        Don’t try to say how good he is for managing to keep his opponents down, cause that’s easy when you outweigh your opponent by at least two weightclasses. He’s a massive weightcutter and you know it.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          You have good points on his fighting style and on his weight and cutting down but most top welterweights do that as well. BJ, one of the best would you agree, waxed his ass for two rounds and then gassed and his face showed what complete dominance Fitch had on him after the third round. Don’t you think a guy like Fitch who gets completely dominated by a smart BJJ/Boxer and survives for 2 rounds against one of the best and then completely dominates and controls and pounds his ass for the third round is NOT one of the greatest ww of all times?? If so, then you are just too biased and not seeing the truth. Fitch puts on some of the MOST dominant fights in the game. Tell me who he has not ragged doll other than GSP? That’s right nobody.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Hey X where did you go did you just do a driveby to make pathetic points or are you up for a debate??? What is it driveby or intelligence??

        • Xaninho says:

          Sorry it’s neither, it’s having a life lol.

          My points are facts and nowhere near pathetic. You keep saying he dominates fights, that’s impossible cause he doesn’t fight at all.

          That third round against BJ is just what I mean. He went all out because he knew he was behind. He also went all out on a gassed BJ, not a fresh BJ.

          Oh and most recently I believe he didn’t ragdoll Hendricks either….A great day that will be remembered by all MMA fans.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Oh Good I am sooo glad you have a life. It would be hard to debate if you didn’t…..yah well I try at humor….

          anyways, you willing to take this baby to 100 posts or more?

    • Wrestler66 says:

      This is the type of thing that bugs me ….. Go watch K1 or something Wrestling is basically the main base in mma an will always be used …… Fitch just uses it a lot better than most and gets shit for it

      • Xaninho says:

        MMA stands for Mixed Martial Arts. Wrestling is not the main base. It’s not even a Martial Art. It’s useless in combat.

        • Wrestler66 says:

          Ok so why does everyone have wrestling coaches fly in guys like Kenny Johnson who go and work for hours on end on wrestling & takedown defence ? Answer that intelligently and Iight value your opinion.

          “Wrestling is useless in combat”

          Dumbest thing I have ever heard …. How you gonna sub. Guy if you can’t get him down …. How you gonna be comfortable striking when you are not confident in defending the takedown

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Couldn’t have said it better…..ALOT more ruder, but not better…He doesn’t fight or he wouldn’t have said that.

        • Xaninho says:

          Yeah great. In a war battling the enemy dryhumping him for 15 minutes and then discover the bell won’t ring.

          Wrestling is useless in combat, it’s never meant for combat, it’s entertainment.

          Guys have coaches flying in to defend the takedowns and learn to take down, I’ve said before those are the two wrestling techniques that are useful.

        • Kassohh says:

          youre a idiot. the practice hand to hand combat & and wrestling throws in the army, if thats whaa you meant by combat. if you meant, in a street fight situation wrestling wouldnt work then youre equally as retarded. slam someone on their neck in a “combat” situation” and you tell me how useful wrestling is for combat

        • Xaninho says:

          That’s not wrestling that’s Judo / aikido.

        • Wrestler66 says:

          You dont seem to be answering my question Xaninho you just seem to be back tracking on your words and reproducing the same troll shit you initially said ……..

          How is wrestling entertainment from your point of view if you openly criticise wrestlers and say you want them out the UFC……

          How is wrestling not used in combat … The dude was right what is Greco Roman clinch and throws wrestling is not only shooting doubles

          Wrestling in combat allows you to neutralise another inferior fighter / persons skills

          Some examples – Couture vs. Toney (Toney superior striker but can’t wrestle and is made look like a joke)

          Fitch vs Alves (Alves superior striker could not do anything)

          GSP vs Alves …..

          I think you should give up and give wrestling more respect

        • Xaninho says:

          It’s entertainment for people who like to see two guys humping eachother, not to people who are interested in real martial arts.

          Couture-Toney..Toney isn’t a complete striker like a muay thai striker would be. Toney is or should I say was an excellent boxer. He was old out of shape and went in unprepared thinking he would just KO Couture.

          Alves is good but not great.

          GSP is not a wrestler originally, his main arts are Kyokushin Karate and BJJ. He learned a bit of wrestling along the way, cause some wrestling stuff is usable in MMA. I never said it was completely useless by the way. But you two are greatly overexaggerating the importance of wrestling.

          Just look at the champions, if you two were right there would have to be more wrestling based champions. There aren’t because it’s still more important to know how to fight standing up….It’s that simple.

        • Wrestler66 says:

          Let’s look at the champions Bantamweight Dom Cruz Bit of a hybrid style but all built on solid wrestling base Featherweight Jose Aldo incredible striker also known for his incredible takedown defence (wrestling) Lightweight Ben Henderson former wrestler Welterweight GSP now the most dominating wrestler in the sport Middleweight all give you that one Light-Heavy Jon Jones wrestler with really long arms Heavyweight JDS boxer with incredible takedown defence

          But look at the contenders around these guys Urijah Faber , Chad Mendes , Frankie Edgar, Gray Maynard, Koscheck Hendricks Fitch , Sonnen Munoz Weidman , Davis , Evans

          Basically all the top guys are strong wrestlers apart from the exceptions like Anderson who is a freak lol

        • Xaninho says:

          Lol c’mon what you just did right there, saying Jose Aldo has a wrestling base is ridiculous! Aldo is strictly Muay Thai / BJJ based, he’s smart enough to practise with wrestlers to perfect his takedown defense, but that’s not enough to claim he has a wrestling base. He wins most of his fights standing up or via submission.

          Cruz does have wrestling base, but he wins his fights standing up.

          Bendo also does have a wrestling base from college, but also a tae kwon do black belt. Probably because his mom is Korean. He also has a brown belt BJJ. So again it’s not just the wrestling.

          You bring up GSP again. He is not a wrestler. He does utilize a few wrestling techniques like lay n pray unfortunately.

          The contenders all have had their asses handed to them by good strikers and BJJ guys, except for Hendricks and Evans who also rely more on their striking than wrestling.

          You name Evans in your list of strong wrestlers, it’s not a coincidence he’s working on his stand-up with Tyrone Spong. He’s a smart fighter and he knows wrestling without a good striking game won’t help him win the belt.

      • Wrestler66 says:

        I’m done with talking to a guy who says wrestling is “useless in combat” you are a real clown and mayb should actually try training some wrestling some time chances are your gonna be on your back like a little bitch

        • Xaninho says:

          Nah im a pitcher not a receiver..

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Please don’t tell me your the MAN in your homosexual relationships….Like it’s ok, but could you please keep those comments to yourself…have some decency for some of us more squeemish types. Much Obliged….

        • Wrestler66 says:

          Dude you lost everyone who has seen ur replys on this thinks your retarded I mean like full retard like simple Jack in that movie ….. I really think you forget your the guy who said wrestling was useless and provided no educated response just the same old crap little kids say ……

        • Xaninho says:

          By the way….Weak way of accepting defeat dude…

        • WrestlingRules says:

          You ready for round 2? I have a wager once I eviscerate you, You will publicly on this forum, renounce you;re evil ways and promise to never spout this blasphemy that you constantly engage in. And PLease, when referring to THE GREAT ONE (formerly know as Jon Fitch), use THE GREAT ONE and not his former moniker. Though we disagree, we can at least be respectful to ONE of the GREATEST ww of ALL time. Now where were we? OH yah you’re incredible bias is on the verge of insanity if in fact you are being honest and believe the talking points you keep spouting. So what is it? Insanity or are you just full of crap?

        • Hjortur Halldorsson says:

          I’m going to take a wild guess, is your real name Jon Fitch?
          Jon Fitch the Great one, never heard that one before. I agree with you that wrestling is very important and the MMA world is packed with elite wrestlers like the most recent hit Daniel Cormier. I personally really like the clinch because it’s so difficult and exhausting, it’s my favorite part to train in MMA. One thing that fascinates me about wrestlers in MMA is that most of them have serious punching power (Sonnen aside of course).
          BUT Fitch is a boring ass fighter, great wrestler but a boring fighter. I have great respect for his wrestling but I seriously dislike his fighting. He really needs to learn some GnP. A guy like Munoz could help him a lot I would think.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Now finally some intelligence here. And I won’t even TRY and pronounce or write your name….You obviously are someone who has experienced the art of wrestling. It is the MOST difficult of all and requires GREAT character to master. Few can do it as opposed too all these spongebob karatee practitioners. How hard is it to do air kicks and air punches???

          Now I can respect your opinion in that you just don’t like his fighting style, but can you not, as someone who wrestled, not be so excited to see a guy ragdoll everybody but GSP and completely dominate them bar none. You would greatly expand your enjoyment of fighting if you can SEE the complete dominance of these weak ass fighters to not even be able to get up and if they do he just plants them again!!! He is and WILL always be One of the GREATEST ww of ALL time. People are coming in droves to making him one of their favorite fighters.

          And no I’m not THE GREAT ONE (formerly known as Fitch). But I am his new PR guy..crap did I write that….please disregard, I am just a fan who SEES the pure power of his mma game….Peace!

        • Xaninho says:

          WrestlingRules: “You obviously are someone who has experienced the art of wrestling. It is the MOST difficult of all and requires GREAT character to master. Few can do it as opposed too all these spongebob karatee practitioners. How hard is it to do air kicks and air punches???”

          And yet you dare to make the statement that I am bias? GTFO dude! You’re digging your own grave and by judging your intelligence level the grave you dig won’t even be deep enough to cover your fat ass.

          I gave you simple facts that anyone who likes martial arts already knew or at least can look up. The only response you can give is calling me bias?

          It’s easy to see you have no experience with the striking part of fighting, or else you wouldn’t try to disrespect proper striking like you just foolishly did.

          I think my work is done here, my time is too expensive to try and talk some sense into your wrestling biased brain.

        • Hjortur Halldorsson says:

          @WrestlingRules – Of course I can appreciate how Fitch has man-handled some strong ass dudes in the Octagon, like I said I respect his wrestling, but I seriously dislike what he does once he gets them down.
          I know it’s not the case but it sometimes seems to me that Fitch is only training wrestling and nothing else. Maybe Fitch needs to start slamming guys a la Rampage to knock them out.
          I can definitely believe that you are Fitch’s new PR guy. You are at least doing a one heck of job of hyping this guy up 😀
          Just for fun I checked out Fitch’s record in the UFC. 15 fights and only 4 finishes. There’s good reason people are asking the UFC to release him.
          Do you seriously think that Fitch will fight for the title again?

  8. DMAC says:

    Get well Fitch! He’s not the most exciting fighter but I do respect his talent. Come back strong big dog!

  9. WrestlingRules says:

    Hey we are starting a twitter bomb on White for Fitch…..Daily boys lets show Zuffa the wrestlers power!!!

  10. WrestlingRules says:

    Damn, I’m looking for a debate fight, aren’t there any wrestling haters willing to take me on????

    • Sean McCorkle says:

      Lets fight Bitch

      • WrestlingRules says:

        Seany first let’s set a few ground rules k, Please don’t use bitch when referring to me as I insult VERY easily and second from now on when we address Fitch we must address him in the term THE GREAT ONE….now that said. THE GREAT ONE is One of the GREATEST ww of ALL time. your turn

  11. WrestlingRules says:

    I thought I could get this to about 100 posts…looks like none of the wrestling haters are willing to fight…..shit at this point i would even like to fight with TheBigBitch even though each post would be pretty short. He telling me to stfu and let’s fight arsesleeve and me calling him a tough guy and TheBigBitch troll and back and forth like that kinda boring but it would get the posts up….

    • Wrestler66 says:

      Haha it’s good to see a post with more support for Fitch than hate ! Xaninho had taken a while to reply too lol

      • WrestlingRules says:

        So I take it X is a big wrestling hater huh? Well maybe if he is up to it we can play…..

        • Xaninho says:

          I don’t hate wrestling, I like to put things in the right perspective. Unlike you and your boyfriend, who are clearly all up in the wrestlingcommunity’s ass.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Hey, I admire your passion and I’m sure you believe all that stuff you spout and that makes it even funnier. Did you not say earlier you were done with me????

        • Xaninho says:

          I mixed up your and your boyfriend’s names.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Please don’t do that again…can I ask you a question? are you a liberal?

        • Xaninho says:

          No, I’m not bound by political views of others. I have my own morals and live by them.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Ok fair enough, you just seem liberal….but its probably just my bias….I can be quite the dimwit at times

  12. Shewontdoanal says:

    I don’t care because you are a bore to watch.

  13. WrestlingRules says:

    X – yah I’m down here. I’ve been a bad boy today an can only post every 10 or 15 minutes so I need to go have a life for awhile, but I will be back and we’ll take this baby to 100 posts or more….Yah WRESTLING RULES THE WORLD!!! sorry did I type that out??

  14. Brend0magic says:

    Never knew Fitch had fans.

    • WrestlingRules says:

    Lol at the guy who said wrestling is not a martial art. Well neither is boxing, should we ban that too?

      You mean the noble art of selfdefense? Right?

      • Rodriguez says:

        Dude your so stupid! Wrestling is what got Big Foot Silva down and eventually led to Cain finding an opening with his elbow! Wrestling is what is used against the cage! Wrestling tires your opponent enough to beat the shit out of him! Wrestling is just as equally important as standing up…we all realized that in the Silva vs. Sonnen fight… DUMB BITCH!

        • Xaninho says:

          Harsh words for a lil cocksucker like you,….I know there are some techniques that can come to use in a fight. Never denied that either, but it’s not a martial art.

          Now stop using such bad words cunt.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Whoooaaa there cowboy, chill out no need to get all lathery over this. Now in your world (frightening place, I’m sure) what is your definition of a martial art? Please expound for us dimwits.or at least this dimwit..Thx

        • Xaninho says:

          Martial arts basically means “art of combat” or “art of waging of war.” In the early days, it was used as a weapon to survive. Kill or be killed.

          You can’t kill a man by dryhumping him for 15 mins now can you?

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Ok good, now using your definition what is the OLDEST and PUREST form of combat? I’ll answer that, yes hand to hand combat. And hand to hand combat is WRESTLING, yikes. Do you know where Greco-Roman came from. Now granted once they had them on the ground there usually was choking and knife play going on but wrestling was the martial art. I know you don’t appreciate the PURE dominance wrestling brings to the fight game and well you just are missing out and your bias is glaring. It’s like you have a blind spot. I would argue that boxing and bjj is less than a martial art than wrestling at least in their current form. To your definition can you classify any grappling art as a martial art?

          I’ll stop now I don’t want to write a novel here…I would probably get quite a few ad hominens more than usual…you know what I mean…

    Got some serious sack boys here. Bjj I an amazing art. I wrestled varsity in high school since I was a freshman, bjj is better IMO. All you can do with wrestling in MMA is lay n prey like Chael. Wrestling is needed to an extent but bjj is a key component just like how boxing is needed but Muay Thai is way more effective but Jeet Kune Do is even better. I train all of those btw. With the jiu jitsu I know, I can beat any wrestler in my weight class from my guard and if I was on top it would be a wrap. I think Fitch is a good fighter but boring, he doesn’t evolve as a fighter. Chuck Liddell didn’t evolve as a fighter either and he started getting his ads kicked. Fitch is on his way out.

    • WrestlingRules says:

      Good comments and I respect your opinions and would fight for them, HooRah. But I would challenge you to look at this from a different angle. Having wrestled in high school, like yourself, and collegiately recently I am sure you will agree that there is NO art as difficult as wrestling to master to a top level. If requires strength, power, balance and the HIGHEST mental capabilities…..How did you like working out in plastics??? yah

      Now, let-s talk about your points. First, I can see you really love bjj and I find value in it as well, BUT it is simply a defensive art that is of limited value in a fight. Now you said you beat the wrestler in your gym all the time. I agree that in a bjj contest anyone who is a better practitioner will beat anybody else who has lesser skills, wrestler or not. No?? But in a fight bjj is very limited due to its defensive value. Now about boxing, it is like wrestling in the grappling arts and is the PUREST form of the striking arts. Due to the fact that in all other striking arts a larger measure of imbalance is required to achieve in order to accomplish the movement. Whereas in boxing it is at a constant position of balance and imparts more power and more efficiency to a strike therefore more effective in a fight.

      This is getting long so I will wrap up for now. I argue that a combination of great wrestling and great boxing will BEAT anybody in a fight and that it is the PUREST and most BALANCED and therefore, the most EFFECTIVE way to fight. Sometimes people make fighting way too complicated and think they will get better by trying all of these other things and get confused. Fighting is really really simple….I challenge you to get back to wrestling only with great players and don;t let your mind get swayed away for 6 months. Then go back and fight (if you fight) and you will find that you will completely dominate any bjj or muay thai or jeet kune do easily. You wil be the stud in your gym or if you are now even more of a stud…Peace!

    no one cares about him anymore.. plain and simple.

    • WrestlingRules says:

      WHAT??? you have to be kidding He is gaining fans in droves faster than ANY OTHER mma fighter COMBINED….He is being know as THE GREAT ONE, one of the GREATEST ww of ALL time. He dominates every fighter that he faces except one and BJ for two rounds. (Hendricks got lucky…it happens).

      Matter of fact there is a little know tidbit that the rules committees in mma are ready to implement a new rule that will deduct a point from the pussy ass weak fighters who CAN’T escape from a DOMINANT fighter holding his pathetic little weak ass down. And if he need his referee mommy to let him up its a 2 POINT deduction. They are calling it THE GREAT ONE’S (Fitch) Rule.

      side note: the 2 point thing is not quite decided yet but our group is lobbying very diligently to get that implemented as well.
