A welterweight contest between Jon Fitch (24-6-1) and Marcelo Alfaya (15-6) is the latest addition to the October's "World Series of Fighting 6: Burkman vs. Carl" event.

World Series of Fighting officials recently announced the new matchup for the Oct. 26 card, which takes place at BankUnited Center in Coral Gables, Fla., and airs on NBC Sports Network. Josh Burkman and Steve Carl meet in the evening's main event with the promotion's inaugural welterweight title on the line.

Fitch was long considered one of the sport's absolute best 170-pound fighters, but he's struggled in recent years and is just 1-3-1 in his past five appearances. Most recently, he made his World Series of Fighting debut in June and was shockingly choked out in just 41 seconds by Burkman.

Meanwhile, Alfaya is a Florida-based product who has earned six win sin his past seven appearances. The lone loss in that span was a 42-second knockout loss to Jake Ellenberger at 2009's Bellator Fighting Championships 11. Fighting professionally since 2002, Alfaya has earned 11 of his 15 career wins by way of stoppage.
