MMA Fighter Challenges People to Punch Him in the Face, Everyone Fails

Jon Fitch Slated to Return Against Erick Silva at UFC 153 in Brazil


(Come on! Stop *trying* to tickle me, and tickle me!)

Jon Fitch‘s first fight of 2012 will come against one of the most dangerous up-and-comers in the welterweight division. As first reported by Ariel Helwani, Fitch will meet Brazilian prospect Erick Silva at UFC 153: Aldo vs. Koch (October 13th, Rio de Janeiro).

Previously one of the most dependable fighters in the UFC, Fitch hasn’t won a fight since he outpointed Thiago Alves two years ago. Since then, he’s suffered through a draw against BJ Penn, a shoulder injury, and a 12-second knockout loss against Johny Hendricks. Fitch was originally slated to return against Aaron Simpson at UFC on Fuel TV 4 earlier this month, but was forced to withdraw due to a knee injury.

In contrast to Fitch’s tendency to go the distance, Erick Silva has established himself as a fast finisher during his year-long stint in the UFC. He’s coming off a first-round rear-naked choke win over Charlie Brenneman, which followed a 40-second knockout of Luis Ramos and an even quicker disqualification against Carlo Prater.

With Fitch returning from an injury and in desperate need of a win, Silva isn’t exactly an ideal rebound opponent. Will “Indio” launch himself into the division’s elite with a big win over Fitch? And how intense will manager/translator Wallid Ismail get during the post-fight interview?
