CONCORD, Calif. -- MMA Fighting caught up with welterweight Jon Fitch at Wednesday's UFC 117 open workouts at the UFC Gym just outside of Oakland, Calif.

According to UFC officials, Fitch's opponent, Thiago Alves, did not attend the workout because he was focusing on his weight cut, and Fitch discussed the possibility of Alves not making weight, as well where a win over Alves places him in the UFC's 170-pound division.
