Every Wednesday, Administrative Editor Jordan Breen welcomes a member of the mixed martial arts media into “Press Row” on the Sherdog.com blog. This week, Breen is joined by MMAFighting.com's Mike Chiappetta.
Ahead of his World Series of Fighting 3 headliner rematch against Josh Burkman, Breen and Chiappetta discuss the role former UFC welterweight contender Jon Fitch has recently played in public discussion of the UFC, its business practices and fighter payouts. The two reflect on Fitch revealing his own financial information, what the numbers mean and how the current MMA landscape is influencing the market price for free agent fighters.
Breen and Chiappetta also discuss where Fitch stacks up on the all-time list of MMA welterweights, which 170- and 185-pound free agents could make suitable opponents for the American Kickboxing Academy fighter and whether or not a beefed-up Fitch could win Bellator's heavyweight title.
