Jon Fitch pulled from July scrap with Aaron Simpson

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.

    Wonder if he backed out from the fear of not getting a decision win again?

    He must have been laying on some for an extended period of time.

    Fitch may be a boring fighter to everyone else but to me he will always be the guy who, when asked to pick his favorite “Jennifer” between Lopez/Garner/Love-Hewitt in an interview I did in my first year of covering MMA, answered – “Lopez. Gotta love dat ass!”
