    OK, but I thought a Fitch vs. Kos bout was a great ideal and would have shaken up this whole; Friends not fighting Friends nonsense.

    I think they'll have to shake it up eventually. The fans don't want to see that (people refusing to fight), and Dana doesn't want to see it. It's time to grow up and be a professional. You want to be a fighter, then you have to fight.

    People become friends in TUF, but they have to fight each other because they want to win the contest. They don't say "I don't want to fight Joey, because he's my team mate." Bullshit…nut up, or shut up…step up or step down.

    IMO the pitbull its going to take the win but if Kos win over Semtex and Fitch over Pitbull they will have no way to run Kos and Fitch going end up to face themselves or no title shot.

    I hope Alves knocks Fitch the fuck out before he is dragged to the floor and laid on for three rounds giving Fitch another dull as shit victory
