Jon Fitch Signs with World Series of Fighting

Jon Fitch has found a new home.

The former UFC welterweight contender has signed a four-fight contract with World Series of Fighting, the promotion's senior executive vice president Ali Abdel-Aziz confirmed with Thursday night. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The 35-year-old Fitch (24-5-1) was released from the UFC in February following his loss to Demian Maia. The last time he fought outside of the UFC was in July 2005 when he defeated Jeff Joslin via split decision at an event called Freedom Fight.
I really thought that the UFC would re-sign him.
