Jon Fitch and Thiago “Pitbull” Alves will again face off in the enclosure of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. The fight shall take place March 27, at UFC 111 in New Jersey.
Fitch and Thiago have met before, in June of 2006. On the occasion, at UFN 5, the American landed a second-round technical knockout. After that, Pitbull began a seven-fight winning streak, until losing, in his attempt at winning the welterweight title, to Georges St. Pierre at UFC 100.
Coincidentally – or not – Jon Fitch’s last loss was to the very St.-Pierre. Since then, the American has defeated three opponents. The fight was to have taken place in December, but Fitch suffered a knee injury.
The same night, GSP, the last to overcome Fitch and Alves, defends his belt against England’s Dan Hardy. Also for the title, but the interim heavyweight one, Frank Mir faces the undefeated Shane Carwin.
