Today while on a conference call to promote his upcoming bout with Josh Burkman at World Series of Fighting 3: Fitch Vs Burkman, Jon Fitch made the comment that he felt he was working in a hostile work environment when he was fighting for the UFC. It was pretty well known that Fitch and the UFC were butting heads behind the scenes through out the tenure of his contract, and all that came to a head when he was let go despite being 14-3-1 and ranked in the top ten. When UFC President Dana White heard about the quotes, you can imagine he had a different version of the situation.

White told MMAJunkie:

“Jon Fitch said he was working under a hostile work environment and that he never had an opportunity and should have double the wins he had with us. He was complaining about what he had to go through here, about people saying stuff under their breath to him and all this bullshit. Jon Fitch is so full of shit. He’s fucking delusional. First of all, he had every opportunity that anyone else had. After Georges St-Pierre beat the living shit out of him, did we treat him differently or anything?

“Just to lay it out with facts, Jon Fitch lost to Georges St-Pierre at UFC 87. He had an opportunity to fight for the title, and he got destroyed in that fight. He fought to a draw with B.J. Penn in a top contender fight. Then he gets a chance to be a No. 1 contender again and gets knocked fuckin dead in the first round by Johny Hendricks. What opportunities has he not been given?

“He was prominently featured on tons of UFC pay-per-view events. ‘GSP’-B.J. Penn was the main event at UFC 94, and Jon Fitch was on that fight card against Akihiro Gono. He was on UFC 100 vs. Paulo Thiago. He was on UFC 111 against Ben Saunders, and ‘GSP’ and Dan Hardy were the main event of that one. UFC 117 against Paulo Thiago? That was Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen in the main event. He’s fought on all the most prominent cards. When he had a baby, we sent him an awesome baby basket. Do you do that to somebody you don’t give a s–t about? He’s 35 years old, and since 2011, he’s gone 1-2-1.”

“In business, you’re going to butt heads every now and then. But I’ve said publicly many times that I have no grudge with Jon Fitch. That whole thing is overplayed. He was given multiple opportunities and couldn’t win the big fight. He’s trying to make it personal. It’s the furthest fucking thing from personal.”
