Video: Jon Fitch injury update and apology for 'partially torn ACL'

"The rumors are true, I injured my knee. I have a partially torn ACL and I will be out about four weeks. I will have to pull out of my UFC fight on July 11 against Aaron Simpson. I apologize for that. I want to apologize to all my fans that I won't be fighting in San Jose on the eleventh. It's a big disappointment to me, but I'll be back soon and I'll be back strong. Thanks for all your support."

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight number one contender Jon Fitch confirms earlier reports of a knee injury that forced him to withdraw from his scheduled match-up against Aaron Simpson at the upcoming UFC on FUEL TV 4 event on July 11, 2012, in San Jose, California. Fitch fans who can't get enough of the 170-pound wrestler can check out his soon-to-be-released documentary "Such Great Heights" on DVD and iTunes on June 12.
