Yves-Edwards - MMAWEEKLYTwo seasoned veterans in need of a victory have been set to scrap this summer in the form of a fight between Spencer Fisher-Yves Edwards at UFC on FOX 8. Both men have spent over a decade in the sport and should turn in an entertaining effort based on past performance regardless of who comes out with his hand raised.

UFC officials have confirmed the July 27 tilt. Other match-ups attached to the card include Robbie Lawler-Tarec Saffiedine and Jake Ellenberger-Rory MacDonald.

Fisher is 24-9 in his career with nineteen stoppages under his belt. Though he owns past wins over the likes of Sam Stout, Matt Wiman, and Thiago Alves, the 36-year old has lost five of his last six fights including three in a row and is almost certainly fighting for his career come showtime.

The 42-19-1 Edwards isn’t in as dire straits but did come up short in a Split Decision against Isaac Vallie-Flagg the last time he saw action. Like Fisher, Edwards’ extended run in the ring has produced a number of instances of notable success along with a slew of stoppages. He has ended 33 of his opponents evenings including a near-even split between submissions/TKOs including the likes of Rafaello Oliveira, Rich Clementi, Jeremy Stephens, and Josh Thomson.
