Frankie Edgar: I'm Fighting Spencer Fisher at UFC 78

Taken from MMAJUNKIE

Quote:
Undefeated New Jersey native Frankie Edgar (7-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) says he’ll take on UFC veteran Spencer Fisher (20-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC) at UFC 78 in November.

The event takes place Nov. 17 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, and is expected to air on pay-per-view.

Edgar confirmed the rumors while a guest on the Sept. 8 edition of Inside the Cage Radio, a show hosted by MMAjunkie.com (UFC news, MMA news, UFC rumors, UFC gossip, fighter interviews and event previews and recaps - MMAjunkie.com (formerly UFCjunkie.com)) contributor and fiveouncesofpain.com‘s Sam Caplan and UFCtakedown.com‘s Matt Cava.

Last month, MMAjunkie.com reported that Edgar would be a likely addition to the card — and that even arena officials were pushing for him to appear on the fight card.

He’ll now take on Fisher, one of the UFC’s most underrated lightweights. Fisher was supposed to face MMA veteran and “The Ultimate Fighter 4” cast member Din Thomas in the main event of UFC Fight Night 11 next week, but the Miletich Fighting Systems team member had to pull out of the bout because of staph infection. Instead, he’ll now return at UFC 78, but according to his opponent, there’s no guarantee the fight will be televised.

Edgar’s Octagon debut at UFC 67 resulted in one of the most fascinating — and excruciating — finishes of the 2007 fight season. With a unanimous-decision victory over a very tough Tyson Griffin nearly in the bag, Edgar got caught in a kneebar with less than a minute remaining in the fight. His knee popped, hyper-extended, and looked like it might just break in two. But Edgar held on and picked up the victory en route to “Fight of the Night” honors and a fat bonus check.

He returned at UFC 73 in July and scored a TKO over Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt Mark Bocek in the closing seconds of the first round.
