Spencer Fisher (Pictures) has been forced to withdraw from his April 2 UFC Fight Night bout against Marcus Aurelio, Sherdog.com learned Monday afternoon.

The popular lightweight known for his exciting style withdrew following a shoulder injury.

"Spencer is the kind of fighter who has fought plenty of fights with injuries and Marcus Aurelio is not the kind of fighter you want to fight at 80 percent," said the native North Carolinian's manager, Monte Cox. "He was willing to fight but we decided it just was not a smart decision."

The 31-year-old Fisher (20-4-0) was looking to rebound from a loss to Frank Edgar (Pictures) at UFC 78.

Aurelio (15-5-0) had hoped to continue the momentum he had built in his dominant stoppage win over Luke Caudillo at UFC 78 against Fisher.

He will now likely face Jim Miller, whose only loss came at the hands of Edgar. Miller (10-1-0) is riding a five-fight winning streak into his UFC debut.

Sux, but I'd rather see him in real fighting condition. Was too close for me to call anyway.

I have seen Miller fight a few times on HDNet, he is the Ring Of Combat lightweight champ. His ground game is his strength, but it will be no match for Aurellio.

it was pretty much 50/50, maybe 55-45 for maximus.

But IMO after you take into account the styles of the two fighters anything less than 2-1 odds for fisher are not good odds.

Well one of the best fights on the card is gone now. That kinda sucks but this card is still one of the best I've seen.

I wouldn't mind seeing Aurelio fight Sam Stout instead of Clementi at UFC 83.

Replace the Fight Night card with Clementi and Jim Miller.

But after Clementi and Gallard decided to be the two most classless fighters in UFC, I've been waiting for the Stout Clementi fight so i can see Sam Stout make Rich Clementi swallow some teeth

Good call..... partly my rationale for not wanting Clementi on a Pay-per-view card...

I don't think he deserves to be in the main event even on an undercard. I'm wondering why he's even still around after that disgusting showing...

I'm hoping the UFC is just gonna run out his contract... They don't need guys like that representing MMA....

stouts a pretty good fighter...wasnt it the stout/fisher fight that was really good?

both Stout - Fishers fights were really good... Fisher lost the first battle, but had weight cutting issue that apparently contributed to the loss... that second boat again a BATTLE..... which ended in a decision win for Fisher...

Two GREAT slugfests.
