The bout WSOF fans have been waiting for will finally happen. Rousimar Palhares will defend his WSOF welterweight championship against Jon Fitch at WSOF 15 in December.

The bout was originally scheduled to go down back in July, but Palhares withdrew from the bout after his mother became ill.

The WSOF confirmed the bout with MMAFighting.

Palhares will be riding a 2-fight win streak into the bout, with his most recent victory coming over Mike Pierce back in March via inverted heel hook.

Fitch on the other hand will also be riding a 2-fight win streak into the bout, with his most recent win coming over Dennis Hallman via unanimous decision.
