Late Wednesday UFC welterweight contender Jon Fitch (19-3 MMA, 10-1 UFC) announced his UFC 106 fight had been canceled because of a knee injury suffered by opponent by Ricardo Almeida (11-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC).

However, another bout – a rematch from 2006 – may be on the way.

A source close to the UFC today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Fitch likely will instead fight fellow contender Thiago Alves (16-5 MMA, 9-3 UFC) in December at UFC 107; Alves' rumored opponent on that card, Paulo Thiago (11-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC), would instead be booked for another bout.

huge win for both guys to get right back in contendership

i do see paulo thiago now on ufc 106 may face a kammpman or someone less on the prelim and now push the davis vs saunders on the main card

i will say this alves is a different fighter than he was when they last fought

YES!!! I love it because atleast now Paulo Thiago atleast gets a shot too become a legit contender and get to build himself. Gettting the top 3 WW's beside GSP all in a row is definitely bullshit. Hope he gets a winnable fight and can keep growing.

BUt YES I LOVE THIS FIGHT! Definitely believe Fitch will beat him again. Be some sick exchanges on the feet but Fitch's ground game will be the factor again but this time I see it being an exciting action packed fight with Fitch getting an exciting decision nod but out working Alves.

A rematch people have wanted to see for a while now. It makes so much sense now too. I think Alves avenges the loss.

perfect fight, maybe now we will also get the chance to see if paulo thiago is for real, it's a tough measuring stick fighting kos, fitch and alves in your first three ufc fights, now maybe he will get a gatekeeper to see if he really belongs or if he was just a fluke.

I think paulo thiago just caught a break. I like Alves focused after that gsp loss and pulls out the tko win.

I hope paulo thiago waits for Almeida to come back or has a fight and then goes against him. Shows where both guys are. I am so excited for alves vs fitch
