Interview: Jon Fitch What’s up Jon, let’s start out with the nose that was broken against Hironaka at UFC 64. Is it all healed and are you cleared to fight at UFC 68?
Jon Fitch: The nose is good. I’ll visit with an ENT guy this upcoming Tuesday (February 20) for clearance to get licensed for my next fight. So you will get cleared?
Jon Fitch: Yeah, I’ve been overly protective with it in training. It’s good. I didn’t want any problems getting cleared so there won’t be any problems. There wasn’t surgery correct, it wasn’t like a Rich Franklin break?
