Jon Fitch vs. Paul Daley

Fitch comes in tonight 30-7-1 (1 NC) on a four fight win streak as the former champion of whatever “Sugar” Ray Sefo calls his organization these days. Daley comes in 40-15-2 with 30 career knockouts in his 40 MMA wins. Will “Semtex” unload with his dynamite or will he get “Fitch’d” to the ground? We’re about to find out. Fitch has the black trunks and blue gloves and fights out of San Jose. Daley has red trunks and gloves and fights out of Nottingham, England. Our referee is Jason Herzog.

Round 1: Daley stays on the outer circle on his side of the ring and makes Fitch come to him. He jogs back and forth left and right, feinting and teasing, and finally Fitch throws a leg kick and shoots. Daley throws right hands as Fitch tries to unbalance him on one leg, but Daley is able to fend it off. Fitch drops down on both knees trying to get the single leg as we pass the one minute mark. Daley keeps widening his stance more and more and Fitch is getting nowhere. Fitch tries standing up and throwing knees to the body and the leg. The crowd is getting restless. Daley puts his weight on Fitch’s back as he keeps trying and failing to secure a single leg takedown. He’s almost all the way upside down on his head. He’s finally able to get Daley down to his butt and throw left hands at Daley’s head. It’s effective if not exactly exciting. Daley gets back up at 3:34. Fitch immediately goes to a single leg again and the hometown AKA crowd isn’t thrilled. Herzog breaks them up at 4:10. Daley rocks Fitch with an uppercut! He’s got him hurt again with a left hand. He throws a big knee and Fitch is wobbly. Fitch survives R1. Daley may have stolen that round by hurting Fitch late so I’ll score it 10-9 Daley.

Round 2: Fitch shoots right away and gets the single leg takedown at 18 seconds. Fitch gets a full mount sitting on Paul Daley’s side and pounding away. From there he works his way to Daley’s back unloading left hands to the head and chin. He flattens Daley out to get a hook in and keeps working his way toward Daley’s chin. Daley manages to turn over and protect his neck for the moment with his back to the canvas. Scattered booing throughout the arena as Fitch works the body and head and keeps Daley from getting back up. That’s a 10-9 round for Fitch.

Round 3: Fitch has the takedown even faster this time at 0:09 and the crowd immediately responds with displeasure. It looks just the same as the last round - he goes from the side mount to taking the back with one hook in while hammering left hands into Daley’s chin. As long as he stays on offense and Daley can’t shake him off or get back up, Herzog seems unmotivated to stand them up, no matter how the patrons in San Jose feel. Daley is using his left arm to protect his head as best he can. All he’s doing on the ground is controlling Fitch’s right wrist. Eventually enough unchecked shots to the head may force a TKO stoppage — but I doubt it. I’m not sure what Daley is saying to the referee but it’s right next to the camera man and they have to bleep it out. Daley gets uncensored and says “Yeah Fitch you’re going to get millions of fans with this! Boooo!” Then he gets bleeped out again. Fitch wins R3 10-9.

Final result: The judges score it 29-27, 29-26 and 29-26 for Jon Fitch.
