Jon Fitch
Murphy’s law says “anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.”

The old adage appears to be true for the UFC these days as an injury has claimed another top fighter from an upcoming card.

Jon Fitch has suffered a knee injury in training that will force him out of his scheduled bout against Aaron Simpson at UFC on Fuel TV 4 on July 11.

Sources close to the match-up confirmed the news to MMAWeekly.com on Saturday.

Fitch was returning to the Octagon for the first time since suffering a knockout loss to Johny Hendricks at UFC 140 last December.

The loss broke Fitch’s six-fight unbeaten streak in the UFC and is only the second loss he’s suffered since joining the promotion in 2005.

While the severity of the injury is unknown, it appears that it’s bad enough for Fitch to scratch from the bout with Simpson slated to take place in San Jose, Calif., this July.

Now the search is on for yet another replacement as the UFC deals with a rash of injuries that have piled up over the last few days.

MMAWeekly.com will have more information on Aaron Simpson’s new opponent when it becomes available.
