It looks as though the UFC will have a fight for Sam Stout after all. Kenny Florian had to drop out due to back spasms today. Now in comes Spencer Fisher who weighed 175 pounds this week visting family in North Carolina.
“He was drinking a coke when I called…” manager Monte Cox told MMAWeekly. “We will have Billy Rush wave his magic wand and fight.” Fisher was thought to be a perfect replacement because he had all of his medicals complete in the state of Nevada.
Now the question becomes, can he make that kind of weight at Friday’s weigh in? “Spencer Fisher is a fighter period. He will take on anybody at any time. Is it a dangerous fight this late? Absolutely. But this kid loves to fight and we are confident he will make weight and do well this weekend.” Cox said.
Fisher last fought in the UFC at Ultimate Fight Night 3 against Aaron Riley on January 16th, 2006 as he won by TKO/Doctor’s Stoppage after the first round. Fisher is now 2-0 in the UFC as he defeated Thiago Alves at UFN 2.
Fisher’s professional record is sensational is he is now 17-1 in MMA as a professional. Fisher’s only loss was to Carlo Prater back in May 14th, 2004 at the Freestyle Fighting Championships by decision. Sam Stout is 8-1-1 and is the TKO Lightweight Champion.
