06:37 PM ET 03.26 | WSOF welterweight Gerald Harris is not particularly with the news that Jon Fitch would be fighting Josh Burkman at WSOF 3 in what appears to be the de facto top spot for 170-pounders in that organization. While not title shot has been formally announced, there are some indications that bout could crown the WSOF welterweight champion. "A title shot to me is a very valuable thing," Harris said. "It's something we all train for and something we all work for. When you get in an organization, if your title is going to mean something and it's going to have some value, it can't be given. It has to be earned." According to Harris, Fitch receiving what could be an immediate shot is "just straight-up ridiculous." Harris, though, understands the politics of match-making, but believes this is too far in the wrong direction. "I understand," Harris said. "They're a new organization, trying to get on the map as soon as possible, but that's just a bad move. For your fighters that are below that level, for fighters that have been there for a short time, they're not going to respect the organization."
