Jon Fitch out with knee injury vs. Simpson in July

by Dave Metzer | source:

More 'bad s---' in the injury category.

Jon Fitch is incredbibly hard to beat. He lost twice in 2002, once in 2008 (title shot), and an early KO vs. Johnny Hendricks in his last fight in 2011, and that is it. But now injury took him down.

Fitch had been scheduled to face Aaron Simpson, who was dropping to 170 for the first time, at UFC on FUEL TV, July 11, 2012.

The July UFC curse continues as Jon Fitch suffered a knee injury in training and is out of the 7/11 fight with Aaron Simpson in San Jose.

No word on the severity of the injury past that he won't be able to fight for the time being.

It is beyond rare for someone to have such an impressive record with such a long win streak and still not impress a single soul.Lesson learned... Point fighting is for karate, not MMA.

This may be the only situation where a fighter being taken off the card actually increases the events ratings.
