Fitch/Almeida canceled, Fitch/Alves rematch SET for UFC 107 [UPDATED]

Quote:
…according to Fitch, who just released the news through several of his social networking accounts:

“My fight on Nov. 21st is off, Almeida blew out his knee, but I get a bigger better fight instead. Cant say who yet, but lots of you have been waiting for this fight a long time.”

When contacted by MMAmania.com, Fitch was unable to reveal his new opponent, but did say his fight would be shifted to a later date against “A huge opponent.”

Let the speculation begin.

Thank God!!

I obviously feel bad for Almeida being injured but this fight was stupid imo and I'm glad it's being canceled.

Who is Fitch fighting instead? From the sound of it, I'm going to say Alves (so Alves/Paulo gets scrapped too).

What a difference a day makes.

Less than 24 hours after Jon Fitch revealed via various social networking avenues that his UFC 106 fight with Ricardo Almeida is off and that a “huge opponent” would step in to fill the opening, UFC president Dana White confirmed it.

Following Thursday’s UFC 104 pre-fight press conference, White told MMAWeekly.com that Thiago Alves would be pulled form his UFC 107 bout with Paulo Thiago to step in for the injured Almeida. The bout will, however, take place on the UFC 107 fight card in Memphis, Tenn.

The change infers a much greater impact on the UFC welterweight division than the previously scheduled bouts. Fitch is currently the number two ranked welterweight fighter in the world, while Alves sits at number four. Thiago and Almeida are unranked in the division.

Failing to capture the title from welterweight kingpin Georges St. Pierre at UFC 87, Fitch (19-3) has since won back-to-back bouts against Akihiro Gono and Paulo Thiago.

Alves (16-6), in his most recent action, was also unsuccessful in wresting the title from St. Pierre. Prior to that, he had racked up seven-straight victories including wins over Fitch teammate Josh Koscheck and UFC legend Matt Hughes.

A UFC lightweight title bout between current champion B.J. Penn and challenger Diego Sanchez heads UFC 107 on Dec. 12. Fitch vs. Alves will don the main card.

Yesss!!

Good news.

Now we'll get to see him face Thiago Alves or someone else who is high up... Marcus Davis? Chris Lytle?

I see what you mean.

I'd like to see Ricardo build his way up to the title too but I just think that Fitch is a bad match-up for him and he wasn't ready to face the #2/3 WW for his 1st fight at 170.

at ppl thinking this will somehow lead to fitch fighting someone high on the ladder..The ufc arent high on fitch and his fighting style and lack of charisma isnt helping his case either..I could easily seem him fighting another lowly WWer
