Jon Fitch Latest Fighter Out Due To Injury | UFC News

By Jamie McAllister
Jon Fitch is the latest fighter forced out of a bout due to injury.

Fitch has suffered a knee injury in training which takes him out of the July 11th UFC On Fuel TV 4 card where he was set to face Aaron Simpson.

Sources close to the match-up confirmed the news to MMAWeekly.

Fitch for the first time would have been returning to the octagon following his knockout loss to Johny Hendricks at UFC 140 last December.

The loss snapped Fitch’s six fight unbeaten streak and was only his second loss since joining the UFC in 2005.

The severity of his injury is still unknown but it appears bad enough for Fitch to pull out of the bout with Simpson which was rumoured to be taking place in San Jose.

The UFC will yet again have to search for a replacement after all the recent withdrawals due to injury over the past week.
