Spencer doesn't fare well against good wrestlers. Edgar dominated him and I think Uno should have won their match up, although it was close. Think i'll take Joe Daddy.

I expect much of the same like the Frankie Edgar fight... Joe Daddy looked like a new fighter in the Nate Diaz fight... the training at Jacksons camp must be paying off!

Definately gonna go with Joe, he's looked great in the Diaz fight, and truthfully I think Fisher lost to Uno.

Man, I love how Spencer brings the fight but as others have stated, this is not a good match up for him. Hopefully he works on his takedown defense but I see a UD for Daddy

Oh man, this going to be a great fight. I like both fighters in this fight and really think both these guys are very talented. It's going to be a tough battle but I have to go with Joe Stevenson to win. He looked amazing against Nate Diaz and controlled him for nearly the entire fight. I believe he can do the same exact thing with Fisher, maybe might even submit Fisher with one of his famous Guillotine's.

Ehh...this fight doesn't thrill me.

I don't understand why they keep matching Spencer up with wrestlers lately....I want to see someone who will stand with him again, like the Stout fights!

I think Joe wins a decision here....

I completely agree. I don't see this match up being too exciting.

I'd like to see Fisher moved to WEC. I think there's some great match ups for him there. Fisher vs Varner would be awesome.

Finally Joe takes a fight where he should be favourite. This should be a good match up for him. 30-27 UD imo.

It seems easy to predict.....so I am not that excited. I think Spencer's striking is just as good as Joe's, but Joe's grappling is way better. I am thinking sub by RNC in favor of Joe.

I think Spencers striking is much better than Joe's.

In his 27 professional fights, The King has never been submitted. I don't think Joe Stevenson will be the one to do so.

Joe via UD.

With his lack of Take Down Defense, It will be hard to pick against Joe Daddy... I'm a huge Fisher fan though and may pick him anyway, even though going with heart over head usually is never the best way to go.

I don't think either fighter will be able to finish the other via strikes nor will Fisher dominate Stevenson handily standing up, so I think it's a point that doesn't matter much.

On a sidenote, if Uno had defeated Fisher, Stevenson vs. Uno would have been a very interesting fight. As is now, Stevenson via UD.
