Jon Fitch revealed a couple of things late Friday night. For starters, it appears he is gunning for one of the UFC’s highly-coveted Twitter bonuses, and secondly, the autocorrect on the welterweight’s computer needs to learn how to spell Jake “Sheilds’” last name.
With a lengthy rehab staring him dead in his eyes, Fitch aggressively took to the blue-birded network to drop his two cents on the Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz title unification bout that appears destined for December.
While UFC president Dana White coined the #BusinessAsUsual trend on Twitter, and Urijah Faber is vigorously pushing his #NoShirtNation campaign, Fitch is attempting to ignite a # revolution of his own.
Here is what @FitchFighter posted on Twitter last night (Unedited):
@DaveCamarillo why would that fight be good. Diaz got title cause Sheilds vacated the belt. Paper champ.
Let’s see Sheilds vs. Diaz fos number one contender while I’m hurt.
Keep that going Fitch Fanatics #GSPvsDiaz=bullshit
@officialswick you know it’s bullshit buddy. Who else should fight the frenchie other than me. For realiz
I’ll fight anyone. I’m out till dec. But I’ll fight anyone hopefully gsp in dec.
Another thing fans may have learned about Fitch is that the former UFC top contender doesn’t follow Strikeforce too closely. Diaz actually captured his title outright by beating Marius Zaromskis in January 2010 to become the company’s first 170-pound title holder.
Reigning Strikeforce champ Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza defeated Tim Kennedy to collect Shields’ vacated middleweight belt last August.
