On Saturday, the inaugural World Series of Fighting welterweight champion, Steve Carl, will be putting his title on the line against Rousimar Palhares at WSOF 10. While the event is still a few days away, there is already a man waiting in the wings to face the winner of the WSOF 10 main event.
According to World Series of Fighting executive vice president Ali Abdel-Aziz and MMAFighting.com, UFC veteran Jon Fitch will take on the Carl vs. Palhares winner at WSOF 11 in July.
There is no official date, location or venue set for the event.
Fitch has yet to perform at a high level and he hasn’t looked impressive in his first two fights in the WSOF cage, but his pedigree seems to be enough to earn him a title shot.
