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

USA TODAY Sports

"Thugjitsu" and "The King" are set to fight in a battle of veteran lightweights at UFC on Fox 8 in Seattle, Washington.

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.
