Jon Fitch Says It Feels Great to Win the Title

April 3, 2016 | Posted by Jeffrey Harris

MMAjunkie recently interviewed WSOF fighter Jon Fitch after his WSOF 30 title win over Joao Zeferino. Below are some highlights from a post-fight scrum:

Fitch on how it feels to win the title: “It feels great. I can’t express how sad I am and how happy I am to reach an achievement like this. A lot of people have sacrificed a lot in order for me to be here and I kind of wanted to win the belt for them – especially my father.”

Fitch on almost losing his father: “I almost lost him a couple months ago – he had a heart attack and had quadruple bypass surgery. It just weighed heavy on me that he may die before I was a world champion. Everything my family has done for me and supported me, through wrestling and through college and fighting and everything, I couldn’t live with that.”
