UFC Quick Quote: Jon Fitch thinks he deserves a title shot with win over Chris Wilson

Jon Fitch

"I don't see how I could not get one. I am seven and zero in the UFC right now and 14 straight wins against tough opponents. Who else has done that and not been given a title shot? I think I've earned it."

-- Top welterweight contender Jon Fitch tells ADCC News that he deserves the next chance at the 170-pound crown if he can get past Chris Wilson at UFC 82: "Pride of a Champion" on March 1 at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio. Of course, Karo Parisyan is confident that he's the next in line if he can topple Thiago Alves at UFC Fight Night 13 on April 2 from the Broomfield Event Center in Broomfield, Colo. Without question there's a ton on the line for Fitch and Parisyan in their next bouts. It should be real interesting to see how this all unfolds ... especially if Wilson and Alves pull off the upsets.
