Following his controversial dismissal from the UFC, top-ten welterweight Jon Fitch has found his next home with World Series of Fighting. WSOF’s senior executive vice president Ali Abdel-Aziz revealed last night that Fitch has agreed to a four-fight contract, and will likely make his debut at the fledgling MMA promotion’s third event on June 14th. Fitch confirmed the news on twitter, saying that he’ll be officially signing contracts today.

Fitch’s opponent for the 6/14 card has not been determined yet, despite Gerald Harris‘s admirable efforts to troll his way into the booking.

In a related story, former UFC lightweight Jacob Volkmann — who was also recently fired during the UFC’s ongoing mass executions — will be making his World Series of Fighting Debut at WSOF 3 against former Strikeforce standout Lyle Beerbohm. “Fancy Pants” left Strikeforce following back-to-back losses to Pat Healy and Shinya Aoki, but has racked up five straight wins since then.

World Series of Fighting’s next event — headlined by Andrei Arlovski vs. Anthony Johnson — takes place March 23rd at the Revel Casino in Atlantic City. The full lineup for that card is after the jump.

I hope Fitch ran to the bank to cash that cheque before it became bounce-able.

WSOF is going to be the Goodwill of UFC.

Fitch will be fighting lesser talent here so there's a chance he might finish somebody assuming he doesn't just get get lazy and coast on his wrestling.

For everyone calling Fitch boring, I have a feeling he is going to do some serious work. He blasted Erik Silva, you can expect a few more beatdowns like that

And the crowd has already booked their refreshment and bathroom break appointments with many quoted 'I hope there's. REALLY long lines so those 20 minutes are more exciting'
