« MMA Link Club: Dana White doesn’t mind TRT usage in MMA, Lorenzo Fertitta not so much | Home | David Williams: Nate Marquardt & the issue of accepting responsibility (he claims his hypogonadism is from concussions) »

I decided against doing a transcript of this interview, simply because there was too much background noise in the audio to make it worth my while. Nevertheless, you should watch it to hear some of his rather curious responses.
For example, he’s mad about the fact that BJ Penn ended up challenging Carlos Condit. However, he’s more or less mad about the fact that he’s stuck in no-man’s land due to injury as opposed to Penn challenging Condit. (Even though Fitch, on Twitter, said at the time that he was hurt and disappointed by BJ’s actions.)
Fitch noted that the only opponent available for him to fight soon would be Martin Kampmann. He further stated that he would love the fight to take place this November in San Jose.
Where the interview gets real interesting is when he starts talking about Nick Diaz and how Diaz is the only guy he really hates in MMA. He says that Diaz is scared of his fighting style, that Nick’s MMA record is ‘padded,’ and that he’s been protected too often by promoters in the past. Towards the end of the interview, Fitch basically defends his fight style (again).
