Thiago Alves Vs. Jon Fitch On Tap For UFC 115 In Vancouver


Scheduled to rematch at UFC 111 just last weekend, Jon Fitch and Thiago Alves had their bout put on hold after Alves was forced off the UFC 111 card to a brain anomaly that was found during the CAT Scan prior to the fight.

Alves had successful surgery last week and it now looks like the two will get another chance for the rematch on June 12th at UFC 115 in Vancouver, BC.

Dana White tweeted the news earlier today.

Fitch and Alves will likely be the semi main event for the card that is set to feature Chuck Liddell taking on Tito Ortiz to finish off this season of TUF but, signs are pointing towards Liddell fighting Rich Franklin and Ortiz out of the bout and his TUF coaching gig.

The UFC is tight lipped about what happened with Ortiz but a new photo that popped up over the weekend suggests Franklin took over the coaching gig from Ortiz later on this season.
