Roger Huerta vs. Spencer Fisher possible for spring 2009 UFC event

Quote:
The Ultimate Fighting Championship is considering a lightweight bout between contenders Roger Huerta (20-2-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) and Spencer Fisher (22-4 MMA, 7-3 UFC) that would take place in the first half of 2009.

Sources close to both fighters recently told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that the fight has been discussed and could be a featured bout for a major event, including a possible March 7 UFC 96 event in Columbus, Ohio.

The fight would be Huerta's first since his August loss to Kenny Florian at UFC 87.

Just prior to the fight, FIGHT! Magazine released a story in which Huerta discussed the UFC and his displeasure with how some fighters -- himself included -- are compensated. In the story, Huerta described how he no longer does grueling press tours for the UFC because he only received a $50 per diem for his efforts. He also hinted at a possible lack of loyalty from the UFC, though the story focused on many other aspects of his promising career.

The more-controversial comments caused a bit of a stir among fans when they showed up in MMA forums and websites. However, during that time, Neal Taflinger, the story's author, assured MMAjunkie.com, "The passages that have been cited ... are much less sensational in the context of the entire article."

Regardless, Huerta had been in the doghouse following the interview, but this week, he recently signed a new five-fight deal with the UFC.

With Huerta apparently back in the UFC's good graces, he'll likely next face Fisher, a longtime UFC fighter and perennial contender who's won three of his past four fights.

With Florian already promised a title shot following victories over Huerta and Joe Stevenson, and current 155-pound champ B.J. Penn moving up a weight class in January to contend for Georges St. Pierre's welterweight title, the lightweight title picture is in a bit of a holding pattern. But if the Huerta-Fisher fight does take place, the winner would move into serious contention in the quickly growing division.

Back in August, Huerta snapped a 17-fight undefeated streak with the unanimous-decision defeat to Florian. It was his first loss in four years.

Fisher, meanwhile, won both of his fights in 2008 with a unanimous-decision victory over up-and-comer Jeremy Stephens and a third-round submission win over Shannon Gugerty. Back in 2005, he delivered Thiago Alves -- the UFC's current No. 1 170-pound contender -- his first and only UFC loss.

I really like this match-up- A LOT.

I like Roger but I'll be rooting for Spencer in an all-out freaking war.

Damn I'm already pumped to see this.

What an excellent matchup!

I'm taking the King Fisher, but this one is going to be epic. Potential FOTY.

I got FIsher on this one. Better boxing and submissions if it goes to the ground. Odds are it won't seeing as who the 2 fighters are.
