Farewell Jon Fitch's UFC Career

Note - this was fan requested on Twitter by Tommy Nicholls. You can request things for me to write about and I'll do my best because why not.

Sad news today as a UFC institution since 2005, Jon "Jon Fitch" Fitch was cut from the enormous roster. He leaves behind a legacy of intense, grappling-heavy victories that broke his opponents' spirit, known colloquially as "Fitchings", along with whatever chunks of his brain are embedded in the canvas after Johny Hendricks punched the daylights out of him. Of course, if you were to ask Fitch, he'll always be part of the UFC, since time has no meaning to him.

Fitch had underwent a bit of a rough patch, including the aforementioned murder at Johny Hendricks' bearded fist, a Fitching by Demian Maia, and the unfortunate demise of his wife and mother-in-law by kitchen-based asteroid.

Instead of the sad times, let us recall the joy Jon Fitch brought into our lives, like the time he made Erick Silva look like a dope, and then that time he beat up Panthro.

Farewell, Jon Fitch, Skyrim is your home once again.
