Fitch gets next welterweight title shot, will fight Steve Carl vs Rousimar Palhares winner
Fitch is poised to challenge the winner of Steve Carl vs. Rousimar Palhares -- who will headline WSOF 9 this weekend (Sat., March 29, 2014) at "The Joint" from Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada -- at WSOF 11, which is tentatively scheduled to take place on July, 5, 2014, at a soon-to-be-announced location.
WSOF Executive Vice President (and Matchmaker), Ali Abdel-Aziz, shared the news with MMA Fighting earlier this afternoon.
That is, of course, if Palhares' drug test comes back clean and plans go accordingly. And, should "Toquinho" topple Carl and take his belt, that Fitch has changed his mind about fighting the enigmatic Brazilian limb crusher.
