Jon Fitch: 'If Josh Koscheck beats Georges St. Pierre, then I'm moving up to 185'

Quoteworthy:

"To me there's no reason to fight a teammate. It's just not a fight we're interested in at all. It's a situation where, if Koscheck is able to win the belt and defend the belt, I will move up to 185. I think I have a good size frame. I can put on 15 pounds. I may have to take a month off or so to put on some weight, but that process may take over a year from now. I'll have fought every welterweight worth fighting by then. [If Georges wins] I'll be waiting on the front doorsteps with flowers [for a title shot]."

Former welterweight number one contender Jon Fitch would rather sacrifice his title aspirations than have to fight friend and American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) team mate Josh Koscheck. Of course a lot would have to happen for that type of scenario to ever play out. In addition to "Kos" defeating fellow TUF 12 Coach and division champion Georges St. Pierre, Fitch would have to overcome the Brazilian "Pitbull" Thiago Alves later this summer. Can the stars align and ultimately boot the wrestling standout to a higher weight classn? Or will Team AKA close out the year 0-2?
