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:
â€œI really have no idea,â€ Fitch told MMAWeekly Radioâ€™s Weekend crew recently. â€œNo oneâ€™s every come to speak to me about doing anything wrong or right or whatever, so Iâ€™m completely clueless."
â€œI have no idea whatâ€™s expected of me to get the title shots. No oneâ€™s ever come to me and said they donâ€™t like what Iâ€™m doing or I need to do more of something else. Iâ€™m utterly and completely clueless in that regard.â€
â€œIâ€™m living for the fights. Thatâ€™s what I love. I donâ€™t think thereâ€™s anybody out there who I canâ€™t beat. If Iâ€™m in shape and healthy and my timing is on, thereâ€™s nobody in the world I canâ€™t beat.â€
â€œMy 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 heâ€™s still around and undefeated, just because thatâ€™s the kind of person I am."
â€œI want to challenge the best. I want to go up against the best. I want to prove to everybody that Iâ€™m the best.â€
