MMA veteran, Spencer Fisher, is coming off a unanimous decision loss to Frankie Edgar at UFC 78. Prior to that fight, Fisher avenged a prior loss to Sam Stout with a unanimous decision victory over the Canadian Fighter at UFC Fight Night 10.
The lightweights agreed to the fight over the weekend, and bout agreements are expected to be signed shortly.
Fisher is a former roommate and best friend of stand-out Josh Neer, whom Stephens lists as his mentor. However, according to Stephens, a brief phone call with Fisher was all it took for the two fighters to hammer out an agreement that the fight would be strictly business and nothing personal.
