Perennial welterweight contender Jon Fitch can now resume his career.

The American Kickboxing Academy product today Tweeted that his doctor has cleared him to begin training once again following a serious shoulder injury that scratched a rematch with B.J. Penn.

"I'm back!" Fitch wrote today. "Dr. Kavitne gave me the OK to fight."

Fitch vs. Kampmann @ UFC 139

EDIT: The article mentions Johny Hendricks as a possible matchup.

According to Dana, Fitch can sh*t in one hand and wish in the other. He'll fight who the UFC wants him to fight.

then he should hold true to that with every fighter. And instead of granting fighters the fights they ask for, I.e. condit, Liddell, randy, he should do the opposite.

While I get the principal your standing behind I disagree because those guys give therl fans a show and call out fighters because they think it will be an exciting fight. Fitch wins but I never heard any mma fan say im ordering this card because fitch always gives me my moneys worth. If all that mattered was wins then Fitch can make these demands but since this is also a business then Fitch needs to understand he needs to make fans wanna watch him fight and when they do then he can make these demands. Leverage is a S.O.B

I understand that he's not fun for us to watch and that hurts his position, but dude has earned his right to ask, not demand, for certain fights.

Curious who he fights.
Maybe story or mcdonald. Or kammpman. But two losses in a row
Would ufc give fitch to kammpman for a possible third loss in a row

Jon probably thinks he can walk on water and turn water into wine

If he keeps that attitude up, Uncle Dana will make sure he fights on Facebook.

I know people will disagree with this, but I think Fitch is more exciting to watch than GSP. I will never understand how most people love GSP but hate on Fitch. Everyones excuse for GSP is if it aint broke don't fix it. And I understand that, but in my opinion the same thing aplies for Fitch. Like it or not wrestling is a big part of mma.

I agree! Also I'd go as far as to say the third round of the Fitch -BJ fight was one of the most exciting round in the UFC this year!
