Jon Fitch, the 35-year-old Welterweight who was recently cut from the UFC only to lose his WSOF debut to Josh Burkman in 0:41, has big plans for the next 5 years. Here's what he told Ariel Helwani on yesterday's MMA Hour:
"I started thinking about [retirement] a little because I started seeing stuff online about guys retiring all the time and they're my age. I'm like 'What the hell? This guy is retiring? I thought he was young.'
"I figure three times a year, that's at least fifteen fights in five years if you're healthy," Fitch stated. "I think I have fifteen fights left in me."
Fitch, the long-time #2 Welterweight in the world has gone 1-3-1 in his last four fights with two of those losses being finishes inside one minute of the first round.
