Thread: Yves Edwards vs. Spencer Fisher added to UFC on Fox 8 in Seattle

    Yves Edwards vs. Spencer Fisher added to UFC on Fox 8 in Seattle - Bloody Elbow

    In a fight which can only be described as "2005 come alive", lightweights Yves Edwards and Spencer Fisher will square off at KeyArena in Seattle, Washington on July 27th. MMA Junkie reported that both men verbally agreed to the UFC on Fox 8 bout.

    Edwards (42-19-1) lost a tight split decision to Isaac Vallie-Flagg at UFC 156 in February. The Bahamas native had a memorable trip to Seattle last December when he knocked out Jeremy Stephens at UFC on Fox 5. Yves' UFC debut came in 2001 (!), and his greatest Octagon moment was a flying head kick KO of Josh Thomson at UFC 49 back in 2004.

    Fisher (24-9) was previously one of the more entertaining fighters in the UFC's lightweight division. "The King" however is clearly on the downside of his career, having won just 1 of his last 5 fights. His last fight was a unanimous decision defeat to rival Sam Stout, giving Stout the edge 2-1 in their trilogy. Spencer's greatest highlight is his flying knee KO of Matt Wiman Watt Miman at UFC 60 in 2006.

    No main event has been announced for this card as of this writing, but the biggest fight booked for this event is between welterweights Rory MacDonald and Jake Ellenberger.

    Interesting fight, Spencer needs a win here he's lost 5 out of his last 6. Not even sure why he hasn't been cut.

    I was just wondering the other day where the king has been. Should be a pretty exciting fight.

    I'm thinking more along the lines of the over/under on the number of times Goldie says something along the lines of "for the longest time, these two were considered the unofficial LW kingpins".....

    Hell yes! I was planning on going anyways, but I'll go for sure for this fight alone. Yves did a hell of a job last time he was here. Hopefully he can do it again!
