Sources close to the event today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that at least one fighter has agreed to the fight and that bout agreements are in the process of being finalized.
Despite Dana White saying the UFC 117 bout between Fitch and Thiago Alves would be a welterweight title eliminator, that turned out not to be the case. Fitch only has one loss during his UFC tenure, a unanimous decision loss to champion Georges St. Pierre at UFC 87. Since, Fitch has won five straight, all by unanimous decision.
Do you think Fitch deserved to be passed up because of his style? If he beats Ellenberger and Koscheck doesn't beat St. Pierre, do you have to give Fitch the next shot with six straight wins?
