Congratulations to Tiger Muay Thai alumni Jon Fitch of the American Kickboxing Academy.
After a disappointing 5 round decision loss to UFC Welterweight Champion GSP in 2008, Fitch headed to Tiger Muay Thai to work on his striking in an effort to regain the number one contender spot and an eventual rematch with champion GSP.
Defeating Thiago Alves at UFC 117, and winning 4 in a row Fitch has asserted himself as next in line for a Championship bout. GSP will face Fitch’s teammate Josh Koscheck following this season of the Ultimate Fighter, and provided he is able to get past that challenge, Fitch will finally have his second opportunity at UFC gold.
Recently engaged, Tiger Muay Thai looks forward to a return trip by Jon Fitch hopefully late in the year.
