The news broke a couple days ago that Jon Fitch had to pull out of his UFC on Fuel TV 4 bout with Aaron Simpson due to an injured knee.

“I injured my knee. I have a partially torn ACL and I will be out about four weeks,” Fitch said Monday via his official YouTube channel. “I will have to pull out of my UFC fight on July 11 against Aaron Simpson. I apologize for that.”

The fight was to be Fitch’s first fight since getting knocked out by Johny Hendricks at UFC 141 late last year. It was also to be Simpson’s first bout at welterweight, finally deciding to make the cut down from 185 pounds.

“On the good side,” said Fight, “my documentary if finally going to be released, entitled ‘Such Great Heights.’”

As he noted, Fitch won’t be out of commission for long, but there has been no word yet regarding a target for a return fight following the injury.

Simpson is likely to remain on the UFC on Fuel TV 4 fight card with a new opponent.
