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.
Stephens is coming off a second round TKO victory over TUF 5 alum Cole Miller at UFC Fight Night 12 in January.
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.
