Josh Koscheck Jon Fitch

Top UFC welterweight contenders, Jon Fitch and Josh Koscheck, took time away from training and their busy schedules to visit with wounded war veterans at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC, last week.

Both fighters -- American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) stablemates -- are sponsored by Oak Grove Technologies, which set up the visit, meet-and-greet and autograph session.

"Jon and Josh signed t-shirts for the soldiers, chatted with them, joked around, posed for pictures and then after the job fair we all went to visit soldiers at the Malone House," said Mariah Haworth, Marketing Coordinator at Oak Grove Technologies. "It was really nice to see all the smiles."

We'll have more on this outreach as soon as possible ... it's truly great stuff.

For now it's back to training -- Koscheck has a tough fight coming up against Chris Lytle at UFC 86: "Jackson vs. Griffin" on July 5 and Fitch more than likely has a looming showdown with reigning UFC Welterweight Champion, Georges St. Pierre, later this year.
