Fans were dismayed when the UFC cut Jon Fitch, but it was no shock to anyone that he was picked up weeks later by the World Series of Fighting. Josh Burkman is coming off of a knockout win over Aaron Simpson at World Series of Fighting 2, and was adamant that he didn’t think Fitch deserved an immediate title shot in the organization. I guess you could say he got what he wanted, because now Burkman and Fitch have agreed to fight each other in a non title affair at the promotions third event in June.
The fight was first reported by MMAfighting, and its important to note that this bout is a rematch from Ultimate Fight 4 in 2006. Fitch won the bout by rear naked choke in the second round. There has been no announcement as to if this is the main event or not, but if its not it will certainly be the co-main event.
