Report: Jon Fitch Headed To World Series Of Fighting

Former UFC contender Jon Fitch was not out of work long, as World Series of Fighting president Ray Sefo confirmed with BloodyElbow.com that the promotion has signed Fitch.

“We have made a verbal agreement with him, and sent out the contract to him (Friday),” Sefo said.

Sefo added that the contracts is in his hands waiting to be signed, and would like to “find him a home on a June or July card.”

Fitch was a surprise release by the UFC earlier this week, joining the unemployment line with a number of other fighters. He worked his way into a UFC welterweight title match with Georges St-Pierre, but has gone just 1-2-1 in his last four fights.

UFC president Dana White cited a lack of finishes and his high salary as reasons for cutting Fitch (24-5-1).

The WSOF is set to host a second card on March 23 from Atlantic City. Andrei Arlovski will battle Anthony Johnson in the main event.
