Welterweight Jon Fitch has been eager to get back into the cage since his first-ever submission loss to Josh Burkman at WSOF 5 in June. The 35-year-old is on a two-fight losing streak for the first time in his career and is just 1-3-1 in his last five bouts.
Alfaya (15-6, 1 NC) trains jointly with American Top Team and Team Nogueira and is currently on a three fight winning streak. Bellator fans may recall Alfaya getting KO'd by Jake Ellenberger in 42 seconds in 2009.
