Jon Fitch: I'm Clueless On Why I Can't Get A Title Shot

Top UFC Welterweight Jon Fitch has gone 13-1-1 in fifteen UFC fights, the lone loss coming to 170lbs. Champion Georges St. Pierre, and since that loss he has gone 5-0-1 but hasn_t heard a word about any possible title shot in his future.
Fitch hasn_t always had the most crowd pleasing fights but consistently wins inside the cage so if you ask him why he doesn_t seem to get any respect in regard to the UFC gold, he doesn_t really know:
“I really have no idea,” Fitch told MMAWeekly Radio’s Weekend crew recently. “No one’s every come to speak to me about doing anything wrong or right or whatever, so I’m completely clueless."
“I have no idea what’s expected of me to get the title shots. No one’s ever come to me and said they don’t like what I’m doing or I need to do more of something else. I’m utterly and completely clueless in that regard.”
“I’m living for the fights. That’s what I love. I don’t think there’s anybody out there who I can’t beat. If I’m in shape and healthy and my timing is on, there’s nobody in the world I can’t beat.”
“My goals are: one, to win the welterweight belt; two, avenge my loss to GSP; and three, I would like to move up some day and challenge Anderson (Silva) if he’s still around and undefeated, just because that’s the kind of person I am."
“I want to challenge the best. I want to go up against the best. I want to prove to everybody that I’m the best.”
