Jon Fitch, Riki Fukuda’s training partner at American Kickboxing Academy in San Jose, suggested Fukuda sign with World Series of Fighting. Fitch recently traveled to Japan to corner Riki Fukuda for his fight against Brad Tavares. WSOF is a new mixed martial arts organization led by kickboxing legend Ray Sefo. They are the new home of Jon Fitch after his controversial release from the UFC.
