Jon Fitch has found a new home.

The former UFC welterweight contender has agreed to a four-fight deal with World Series of Fighting, the promotion's senior executive vice president Ali Abdel-Aziz confirmed with Thursday night. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

According to Abdel-Aziz, Fitch is expected to debut for the promotion at its third event on June 14. He could face the winner of Aaron Simpson vs. Josh Burkman, which will take place at WSOF 2 on March 23, but that has not been set in stone just yet.

The 35-year-old Fitch (24-5-1) was released from the UFC in February following his loss to Demian Maia. The last time he fought outside of the UFC was in July 2005 when he defeated Jeff Joslin via split decision at an event called Freedom Fight.
