If you bring something with you to the table, you get a seat." But that doesn't mean that he sounded 100% comfortable with the idea of letting an "an amateur come in and do it in the pro game." read news >>

Jon Fitch has never been afraid to speak his mind. So it should be no surprise that the veteran welterweight has a strong opinion on his former employer's new uniform code. The UFC's exclusive six-year deal with Reebok, which will mandate the apparel company's gear in the Octagon and eliminate the potpourri of logos which have adorned fighters' shorts and t-shirts as long as anyone can remember, has been an immediate positive for fighters like Fitch, he says. "It's been great for me," Fitch, who read news >>

After all, even heavyweights are afraid of the Stockton slugger. That's according to "El Nino" (via MMA Fighting): "I had Nate Diaz on the show and the intimidation factor is there. read news >>
