Daron Cruickshank (12-3) is replacing Fisher against Yves Edwards. Both men were in Seattle last year and recorded separate spectacular KOs against Henry Martinez and Jeremy Stephens respectively. Cruickshank dropped a decision to John Makdessi at UFC 158, while Edwards (42-19-1) lost to Isaac Vallie-Flagg at UFC 156.
UFC on Fox 8 is headlined by a flyweight title fight between champion Demetrious Johnson and challenger John Moraga. Cruickshank/Edwards will remain on the FX preliminary card.
