Nos from The Iowa MMA Report is reporting that Spencer Fisher will be taking on undefeated lightweight Frankie Edgar at UFC 78 in November.
The Iowa MMA Report has confirmed that Spencer Fisher will be returning to the Octagon in November to fight Frankie Edgar at UFC 78.
Fisher confirmed the bout after reports that he made a MySpace post saying that he would be fighting in November.
So Fisher goes from a bout with Din Thomas that could earn him a potential title shot in the near future to having to face Edgar. It just goes to show what happens when you suffer an injury at a bad time. At least the UFC is clearing up the lightweight title picture some more by matching the two up.
Update 12:15 PM: MMA on Tap has learned that this bout has only been offered to Fisher and that he has not signed an official contract. We will certainly keep you updated on any new developments involving this story.
