At the World Jiu-Jitsu Expo on Sunday, WSOF head matchmaker Ali Abdel-Aziz revealed that Jon Fitch vs Steve Carl is the next fight on his radar.

“I think Carl and Fitch is the fight to make next,” Abdel-Aziz said Sunday at the World Jiu-Jitsu Expo. “[Josh] Burkman is going to need another win before he’s back in the picture.”

Carl upset UFC vet Josh Burkman to win the inaugural welterweight title at the WSOF’s last event.

Jon Fitch was the first to comment on the pairing, and he agreed that it would be a good match up.

“That would be cool,” Fitch said. “It would have been me and Burkman if he would have won, but the belt takes priority and then hopefully Burkman can win one or two and we can work something out later on for that. Steve Carl’s a tough kid, it should be a good scrap.”
