According to a report from DreamFighters, the rumored showdown between newly crowned UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre and #1 contender Jon Fitch is all but signed. The report goes on to say that Dana White himself has confirmed the bout on CTV Sportsnet. This is all but breaking news as pretty much the entire world has known that Fitch was the #1 contender after defeating Chris Wilson at UFC 82.
Here’s an excerpt from the DreamFighters website:
DreamFighters.com has learned through various sources that GSP’s next title defense will be against Jon Fitch.
Dana White has also confirmed on CTV Sportsnet that the fight is now official, as Fitch was the number 1 contender.
Obviously there’s no word yet on when or where the fight will take place. The timeframe for the fight to happen would most likely be sometime at the end of summer or fall of 2008.
