Add Jon Fitch to the growing list of UFC veterans who have been hit by the injury bug, as the former Purdue Boilermaker has been forced out of a planned meeting with Aaron Simpson.
The bout was scheduled for July 11 from San Jose, California at UFC on Fuel 4.
The news was first reported by the Wrestling Observer.
Fitch was looking to return from a quick knockout loss to Johny Hendricks last December. The former #1 welterweight contender is 23-4-1 in his career with one Draw.
Meanwhile, Simpson is likely to remain on the card against a new opponent for his welterweight debut.
