Jon Fitch channels Bruce Lee as he heads into his fight against Erick Silva this Saturday night (Oct. 13, 2012) at UFC 153 from the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
"The way I fight, it doesn't matter what my opponent is going to do, or what my opponent is capable of. I'm going to oppose my will on my opponent, no matter who he is or what he's gonna do. If they give me an easy takedown, I'm gonna take it. If they're allowing me to beat them up from within their guard, I'm gonna beat them up from within their guard. I'm not gonna force things. I'm gonna be like water, go where it's easy and beat you up there. Erick Silva is a very young and hungry fighter. He's got a bright future, but it's not his time yet. I'll shut him down like I shut everybody down and I'm gonna beat him up like I beat up everybody else."
