Spencer Fisher Out of UFC on versus

Spencer Fisher has been forced out of the upcoming UFC on Versus 1 card in March due to an undisclosed injury. Octagon newcomer Darren Elkins has been tapped as a replacement to face hometown fighter Duane "Bang" Ludwig on the Denver-area card.

The change of opponents was confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by sources close to the fight on Friday. The injury to Fisher was first reported by F4Wonline.com.

Making his UFC debut on just over three weeks notice, Elkins (9-1) brings a solid record with a quality list of opponents in the past.

His last fight, a win over former UFC fighter Gideon Ray, was his biggest victory to date, but Elkins has been competing in several organizations including C3 and Bodog.

Ludwig (19-10) will look to make his hometown crowd happy. He trains alongside fighters such as Shane Carwin and Nate Marquardt at the Grudge Training Center in Denver.

The bout between Ludwig and Elkins will remain on the untelevised portion of the broadcast, which will be the UFC's first show on the Versus network.

another card plagued with injuries .

I'm just disappointed to not see Spencer fight. I'm a big fan of The King. To be a little clearer, I don't think he's gonna make a run at the title any time soon, but I don't think I've ever seen a fight of his I didn't enjoy the hell out of. Considering I feel the same about 'Bang' (with maybe a little more potential possibility), I was REALLY looking forward to this fight.

Hopefully he'll heal up, and this fight will happen after 'Bang' slugs it out with this other guy.

This would have been a really fun fight but not a huge loss with it being on the undercard. In fact, imo this fight card is so stacked, the injuries they have suffered dont really impact the overall appeal of the card.

Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21

What a surprise... Another fighter pulls out of a fight. I don't get my hopes up for fights anymore. This happens way too much. I will be excited for a fight when Bruce Buffer is introducing them before the fight.
