It looks like we still may not find the top welterweight contender for a longer period as MMAWeekly has just reported that Jon Fitch has pulled out of his upcoming rematch against “The Prodigy” BJ Penn on July 2.

As of now no details have came out regarding the nature of the injury but it is severe enough for Fitch to withdraw from the contender match that he has been chasing for sometime.

The bout was set to be a rematch from the fight Fitch and Penn had at UFC 127 in Australia that ended in a draw.

As of now the UFC has yet to find a replacement to step in and face Penn, but the search is underway.
