The duel between the Brazilians Thiago Pitbull e Paulo thiago scheduled for UFC-107 was postponed by Ultimete, with the aim of promoting the rematch between Thiago Pitbull and Jon Fitch at the same event, which will be held on December 12th, in Las Vegas.
Businessman Wallid Ismail, who takes care of the Brasilia native's career Paulo thiago, confirmed the cancellation of the fight against Pitbull to journalist Gustavo Noblat:
Jon Fitch announced via Twitter that a long-awaited fight was close to being announced by the UFC:
“I have a bigger one to do. I can't say who against yet, but many of you have been waiting for this fight for a long time”, wrote the fighter.
In the first fight between Fitch and Pitbull, the American came out on top, winning by technical knockout at UFC Fight Night 5, which took place in June 2006
