Jon Fitch” “I feel like I can beat Anderson Silva, too, and GSP.”

UFC welterweight contender, Jon Fitch feels he matches up well with the UFC’s 170 pound division, as well as the 185 pound division, adding he can beat the best fighters in the world, Georges St. Pierre and Anderson Silva included.

Fitch, speaking via MMAJunkie.com, said:

“We have a philosophy at our gym that it would be much better to have three belts at AKA than to have two belts, and then send two guys to fight for the same belt. So I feel like I can beat Anderson Silva, too, and GSP.”

“I’ve got to wait to hear what’s next. For me, it’s just about getting back to the gym. I have things that I have to improve on, specific things I have outlined that I want to improve before my next fight, especially if it’s a title shot. So I have a little time to do that.”

“GSP is first on my list. But by the time I win the belt at 170, there will be one or two fights left because I will have fought everybody else, and I’ll want to move up. That’s just where my career will progress.”

“Just like the other guys who want to fight the best in the world, I’m the same way. It’s always been my intention to clear out 170 and move up. It’s just one guy left, and I’ve been chasing him since the last loss, and I’ll continue to chase him until I beat him and get the welterweight title and move up.”
