Fitch posted via Twitter earlier today following his surgery and he seems to be in great spirits.
"Awake and feeling like a million bucks," Fitch said.
While the American Kickboxing Academy fighter has not confirmed a return to the Octagon, he is expected to be out of action for six months.
However the injury has not affected Fitch completely. MMAConvert.com also reports he attended a UFC 129 after party last weekend in Toronto, where he and AKA teammate Cain Velasquez ran into BJ Penn.
"I saw him in Toronto and we were at the bar. I walked over to say hello…and the next thing I know somebody was shooting a single-leg [takedown] on me. I look down and it’s B.J., laughing his a– off,” Fitch said. “We’re on good terms, but I still want to kick the crap out of him.”
One can only assume what Fitch's intentions are once he is medically cleared to return to the Octagon.
