UFC welterweight stalwart Jon Fitch (21-3) is now ready to finally rematch Thiago Alves (16-6) at UFC 111 from the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., on March 27, setting up a fantastic 170-pound showdown that will prove once and for all how far both former number one contenders have come since their initial encounter back in 2006.
MMAmania.com (www.mmamania.com) confirmed earlier today that bout agreements have been signed, sealed and delivered.
Their rematch was originally pegged for UFC 107 in Memphis, Tennessee; however, “The Pitbull” had to withdraw due to a knee injury. Fitch remained on the card and defeated Mike Pierce via unanimous decision.
