Seasoned welterweight Jon Fitch didn’t have to wait long to find a new professional home after recently being forced to unexpectedly test free agency due to a wave of UFC cuts. The former title-contender has apparently inked a deal with World Series of Fighting and will make his debut on June 14 at WSOF 3.
MMAFighting confirmed the grappler’s signing with a WSOF official. No opponent has been linked to what will be Fitch’s first fight outside of the Octagon in more than seven years.
The 35-year old Fitch holds a 24-5-1 mark in his career including wins over Diego Sanchez, Thiago Alves, and Ben Saunders. However, he is only 1-2-1 in his last four outings with the lone victory coming over Erick Silva.
