Jon Fitch vs. Mike Pierce set for UFC 107

jon fitchA welterweight battle between Jon Fitch and Mike Pierce is all set to take place at UFC 107.

According to a recent report on MMAMania.com, Pierce has recently agreed to the proposed match-up which will take place on December 12 from Memphis, Tennessee.

The unlikely showdown was booked after Josh Koscheck was yanked from his UFC Fight Night 20 bout with Pierce to face off with Anthony Johnson at UFC 106, and Fitch has seen two prior opponents, Ricardo Almeida and Thiago Alves, bow out due to knee injuries.

Fitch is currently riding a two fight win streak in the Octagon, with wins over Akihiro Gono and Paulo Thiago following his decision loss at the hands of welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre back at UFC 87. Fitch is currently ranked at #2 behind St-Pierre on the official 5 Oz. rankings, and sports an astonishing UFC record of 10-1.

Pierce is fresh off the heels of the biggest win of his career over Brock Larson at UFC Fight Night 19. He sports a career record of 10-1, and is currently riding a six fight win streak.

    Pierce surprised me in that last performance for sure, I don’t think many were betting against Larson, but he doesn’t have the tools for Fitch yet, I see Fitch dominating this fight.

    Fitch is doomed to never have an exciting fight. I predict Fitch to win this fight by wet blanket. Come on Joe Silva, atleast give Fitch an opponent that will force him to have a great fight. I thought the Alves fight would be a total war but that’s not happening anymore. Kos would be another great fght if they weren’t team mates. Dustin Hazelett would probably be a good one because of how active his guard is.

    I’m still hoping Fitch will surprise the skeptics and trade punches for a fight, but I’m not going to pick this fight to be the one.

    first Fitch gets a #1 contender match with Ricardo, then a highly anticipated rematch with Thiago, now a fight that no one really cares for

    Seems like here lately the UFC is putting together some fights that no one cares about. This one, Veach vs Edgar. How you replace Thiago Alves with Mike Pierce is beyond me

    Was that really a #1 contender match between Almeida and Fitch? I hadn’t heard that before and it’s true, that is ridiculous.
