Spencer Fisher headed to the WEC?


It appears as though eleven fight UFC veteran Spencer Fisher may be entertaining thoughts of switching things up a bit and possibly heading over to the WEC .

Thirteen days ago Fisher started a thread at the MMA Underground Forums following his most recent victory at UFC 99, a hard fought unanimous decision over the highly regarded Cao Uno, where “The King” had this to say,”I just wanted to thank Uno for the chance to get in ring with him. He is a great fighter as well as a person. It was a good close fight. And as far as anything else that is said and done I have to hype any fight anyway I can.”

Just this evening Fisher posted this question on the same thread,”Maybe to the WEC, what do you guys think?”

It would be a little bit odd if Fisher switched over to the WEC following three consecutive wins in the UFC, but it would undoubtedly be a place where he would make an immediate impact, and very likely challenge for a title in the not so distant future.

    You can only be a gate keeper for so long before you want the gold. I cant see him getting a title shot before Gray or Edgar that would be over a year and two fights. I like Fisher and his style but I could not belive he got the desion in his last fight with Uno, I think it would be a good move and make for great fights Faber,Aldo or Mike Brown. It would not take as long for title matches. I wonder what the pay difference would be for him.

    Is he going to try to cut down to 145? If he could make 145, he would be a beast, and would be 1 or 2 fights away from challenging Brown, Aldo, and Faber for the top of the division. If he stayed at 155 and moved over, he would also be right at the top of the WEC LWs. Either way, he would go in and immediately contend for a title, which I don’t see him doing in UFC.

    I think he should go over and fight Varner right now. Itd be a great fight and i think he is much more deserving than Benson Henderson or Donald Cerrone after Cerrone already got beat up by Varner.

    You have to wonder about Sean Sherk and a move to the WEC. I think that Sherk can still compete(provided he makes a few adjustments) in the UFC, but I think he could be a champion at 145 or 155.
