The rematch the world so badly wanted is no more.
It is not known at this time exactly what the injury is, however it is presumed to be rather serious considering the two weren't scheduled to lock horns again until July 2 in Las Vegas.
That fight was set to be a rematch of their UFC 127 clash after the two battled to a draw "Down Under." This presented quite the problem for Dana White and company, as the contest was a number one contender bout for the welterweight title.
Now that the rematch has been nixed, what's next for the 170-pound strap? And with a search underway to find a replacement for Fitch, who will "The Prodigy" be taking on in "Sin City" now?
And with the timing of Fitch's injury, it seems plausible that "The Natural Born Killer" could step right in to fill the void.
That's just speculation but if it does come to fruition, would anyone object? Or is there a 170-pound fighter better suited to take on Penn with a potential title shot on the line?
Let's hear it, Maniacs.
