UFC welterweight fighter Jon Fitch talks to us about his upcoming UFC 117 rematch bout against Thiago Alves.  Fitch admits that this second fight will be a lot more difficult because Alves is now a bigger, stronger and better fighter.  Expect an action-packed 170-pound fight between two former no.1 title contenders.

From Jon Fitch:

“He’s a lot better fighter now. He’s bigger, he’s stronger and he’s got much better wrestling. He’s got wicked knees and leg kicks. I can’t let him establish his leg kicks and control the pace. But I know a lot more about him. The first time we fought, the only tape I had on him was one match with Spencer Fisher and I only had a six-week training camp.”
