UFC on FUEL TV 4 gets new co-main event
Jon Fitch out.
Jon Fitch will have to wait for another day for a fight in his hometown, as an injury has forced him out of his July 11 bout against Aaron Simpson.
Stepping in to welcome Aaron Simpson to the welterweight division will be returning striker Kenny Robertson. Robertson's most recent win was a spectacular spinning back fist TKO over fellow UFC veteran Lucio Linharese.
Poor Fitch, who fought to a draw with BJ Penn last year when he fans' eyes he won and then got knocked out in second on Dec. 31 by Johny Hendricks. Sucks to be him right now. Get well soon, Jon.
