Depending on how you feel about UFC welterweight Jon Fitch, UFC on FUEL TV 4 either just became much more interesting or just suffered a massive blow.
As initially reported by WrestlingObserver.com and confirmed by MMAFighting.com, Jon Fitch has suffered a knee injury and has been forced to withdraw from his upcoming bout against Aaron Simpson at UFC on FUEL TV 4. At this time, a replacement opponent for Aaron Simpson has not been announced.
It’ll be interesting to see who the UFC matches Aaron Simpson up with now, as this bout looked like a pretty clear rebound fight for Fitch. Jon Fitch was looking to bounce back from a disappointing 2011 campaign, which included a disappointing draw against BJ Penn at UFC 127 followed up by the fastest loss of his career, a 12-second knockout loss to Johny Hendricks at UFC 141. Meanwhile, Aaron Simpson will be making his welterweight debut after his last effort saw him drop a split-decision to Ronny Markes at UFC on FUEL TV 1. Before that, Simpson had won three straight fights at middleweight.
UFC on FUEL TV 4 will go down on Wednesday, July 11 in San Jose, California. The event will be headlined by a middleweight clash between Mark Munoz and Chris Weidman. The co-main event of the evening will be a light heavyweight bout between Brandon Vera and James Te-Huna.
