In a widely anticipated move, onetime UFC welterweight title challenger Jon Fitch (24-5-1) has inked a multi-deal with the upstart World Series of Fighting.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) confirmed the news with a WSOF official following a report from MMAFighting.com.

Fitch is expected to make his promotional debut at WSOF 3, which takes place June 14 in Las Vegas. A venue has yet to be confirmed.

Great sign. I love what WSOF has been doing. Theyre starting to build on a descent roster.

Yeah. Kind of funny the best WW outside of Fitch at WSOF is Rumble who is fighting at HW.

How funny would it be to see Rumble KO Arlovski and then a few months later get grappled to death by Fitch?

When Harris was on TUF i thought he looked like he was ready for a successful career, but then he wasnt on the final and god knows what happened next. Fitch will probably maul him though

If Koscheck can choke him, Fitch might be able to as well

The WSOF is going to pass Bellator in terms of talent if they keep it up. Bellator is looking a little weaker lately.
