Default Alves scratched from 107

Thiago Alves has a knee injury and is forced off the UFC 107 card.

Who will fight Fitch?

Matt is your phone ringing?

I would love to see Matt fight Fitch. The fight would take place on the same card as BJ v Diego which means I would get to see Matt and BJ fight on the same card (and I think this is the first time they will have both been on the same card and not fighting each other)

Didn't Matt say he had no interest in fighting any of those AKA boys? I would love to see him beat the tar out of any of those guys, especially Kos!

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned that welterweights Jon Fitch (19-3 MMA, 10-1 UFC) and Mike Pierce (10-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) have verbally agreed to meet at "UFC 107: Penn vs. Sanchez," and bout agreements are expected to be signed shortly.

Featuring a lightweight title fight between current champ B.J. Penn and challenger Diego Sanchez, UFC 107 is scheduled for Dec. 12 in Memphis, Tenn. The main card airs live on pay per view.

Fitch was originally expected to face Ricardo Almeida (11-3 MMA, 4-3 UFC) at UFC 106 in November. When Almeida was forced to withdraw due to injury, Fitch was bumped to the UFC 107 card in favor of a match with fellow top contender Thiago Alves.

Unfortunately, that bout was also quickly scrapped when Alves was also forced to withdraw after an injury.

Meanwhile, Pierce was set to face Fitch's American Kickboxing Academy teammate, Josh Koscheck, at the as-yet-unannounced UFC Fight Night 20 event in January. Koscheck was then pulled from the bout in order to fill a co-feature slot against Anthony Johnson at UFC 106.

Pierce wastes no time in meeting a top-level opponent in just his second UFC contest. In his first trip to the octagon, Pierce upset Brock Larson at UFC Fight Night 19 in September. The win was Pierce's sixth-straight victory.

With the addition to the event, UFC 107 now includes:

MAIN CARD

* Champ B.J. Penn vs. Diego Sanchez (for lightweight title)
* Cheick Kongo vs. Frank Mir
* Jon Fitch vs. Mike Pierce*
* Kenny Florian vs. Clay Guida
* Paul Buentello vs. Todd Duffee

PRELIMINARY CARD (un-aired)

* Alan Belcher vs. Wilson Gouveia
* Shane Nelson vs. Matt Wiman
* Ricardo Funch vs. Johny Hendricks
* Lucio Linhares vs. Rousimar Palhares
* Edgar Garcia vs. DaMarques Johnson
* Kevin Burns vs. T.J. Grant

* - Not officially announced
Fitch vs. Pierce
