Lightweight contenders Spencer Fisher (20-3) and Frank Edgar (7-0) will meet in a 155-pound clash at UFC 78 in Newark, N.J., on November 17LINK
awesome matchup IMO. should be an awesome fight.
Looking forward to this one....
Edgar and Fisher always have entertaining fights so this should be a good one.
It will be a good test for Edgar to see if he belongs with the top guys in the LW division.
This is a very tough one to call.
Looking forward to seeing this fight.....
NOT looking forward to making a pick on it though
Oh man, edgar hits hard, fisher is a good striker. shit, i might go fisher cus of experience but shit. FOTN potential
I don't know how much more proof that we need to show that Joe Silva can be a matchmaking genius! This should be a great fight, It has fireworks writen all over it! I am definitely looking forward to this fight.
Great fight! I think Edgar wins this because Fisher's takedown defence isn't that great. But he does have good subs from bottom.
should be a great fight, i gotta go with fisher, he is the better stiker and he has an underrated ground game. imo he was beating franca until he got caught.
FOTN already guaranteed surely? I agree its a very tough one to pick but my guts are telling me Edgar, a good wrestler would be Fishers weakness i think
Striking - Fisher
Wrestling - Edgar
BJJ - Edgar
Experience - Fisher
Cardio - ???
Great Fight, Just.....great fight
Im goin Edgar... He doesnt have experience, but he has been tested a little bit. Tyson Griffin is no pushover and he dominated that fight till the end when he got caught with the knee bar. Spencer is a wild man though. This fights crazy. Im switching my pick to Edgar / Fisher DRAW. You heard it here folks. haha.... we need a poll up on this thread... It's a good one.
i never thought about this match up. this is gonna be such a sick fight. i gotta hunch it's gonna be edgar, i think this kid is special. he just hasnt had the time yet to establish himself.
a thought: this will be edgar's third fight in the ufc...against spencer fischer, and he already beat tyson griffin. roger huerta has had 4 fights in the ufc with guys with zero ufc experience. does anyone think they favor certain fighters? just a thought.
It's in Jersey. Edgar lives in Toms River and Newark is like an hour and a half away ill be there to support Edgar.
I can definatly see Fisher pulling out a Split Decision , Edgar will take him down and work his ground n pound , but Fisher will pick him apart standing
This is a hard one to pick
