Add Jon Fitch To Rapidly Growing List Of Injured UFC Stars

Jon Fitch has been forced out of his scheduled match with Aaron Simpson at UFC on FUEL TV 4, according to a report by MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani.

After the WrestlingObserver.com first reported the injury to Fitch, Helwani confirmed it with Bob Cook, the head trainer for Fitch (23-4-1).

Simpson is moving to welterweight, from the ranks of middleweight, and is likely to receive a new opponent for the July 11 card from San Jose.

In the main event, Mark Munoz and Chris Weidman will square off in a key middleweight battle.
