Default Almeida injured - Could Fitch be Matt's next opponent?

Quote:
A UFC 106 bout has been struck from the night's main card; welterweight Jon Fitch (19-3 MMA, 10-1 UFC) says opponent Ricardo Almeida (11-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC) "blew out his knee" and was forced out of the event.

Fitch made the announced via Facebook and said he'll get a "bigger fight instead," one "lots of you have been waiting for" possibly on a later card.

UFC 106 takes place Nov. 21 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas and airs on pay-per-view.

The UFC hasn't officially announced the change to the card.
I wonder if the "bigger fight" that "lots of you have been waiting for" is a Matt Hughes match-up?

Apparently not. Fitch is going to be fighting Alves. http://mmajunkie.com/news/16581/jon-...n-december.mma
