Add Jon Fitch to the superfight schedule for the World Jiu-Jitsu Expo next month in Long Beach, Calif.

Fitch will go against BJJ world champion Paulo Miyao in a 20-minute submission only match, Renzo Gracie told Newsday on Thursday.

"He's a fighter," Gracie said. "I couldn't beleive when we offered him such a tough opponent, he took it right away and not even a question."

Two weeks prior to the expo, Fitch is scheduled to fight Marcelo Alfaya at World Series of Fighting 6 in Miami.

Gracie also said that Rodolfo Vieira, who was supposed to fight Kron Gracie, had to pull out with an injury. A new opponent for Kron Gracie is still in the works.
