thank god, no Fitch-Penn 2 in Philly

hope Fitch recovers though


Jon Fitch, who was forced to pull out of his scheduled UFC 132 fight against B.J. Penn, will need surgery to repair his injured shoulder. The perennial welterweight contender announced the news on his Twitter:

"Looks like I will be getting shoulder surgery next week. Not the news I was looking for."

No timetable has been announced for his return but Fitch says he will be out for at least four to six months.

All that grinding has worn out his shoulder.

Maybe he can get his wish and finally go to Strikefarce now.

Let's all send him pamphlets about other exciting careers he might consider. Just saying, he'll have a lot of time to think while he's recuperating. Who says he doesn't just change his mind and become an EMT or forest ranger or something?

The surgery will never be completed. Fitch, in an anesthetic-induced haze, will reach up while lying on the operating table, grab the surgeon and then instinctively hold him down for 15 minutes, using up all the time allotted for that operating room.
