Veteran Spencer Fisher (23-6 MMA, 8-5 UFC) has signed a new four-fight deal with the UFC and now meets lightweight newcomer Kurt Warburton (6-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) at October's UFC 120 event.

A source close to Fisher today alerted MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) of the new contract.

The source also said that verbal agreements are in place for the UFC 120 contest but that bout agreements have not been distributed.

Good to see he was not cut, but a little disapointed he is facing a newcomer maybe UFC wants to get him a W

That's what I suspect, I think the UFC should start being a little more relaxed when it comes to cutting guys out who may be losing lately but have put in a lot of exciting fights. Guys like Jardine....he has competed only against top competition for years and made all of them awesome fights (minus Wand who destroyed real quickly). I think this is what they should do to an exciting veteran who has hit a slump, Jardine could still be around if he took on a begginer as the veteran gatekeeper.

Yeah its like Fisher is a vet puts on exciting fight, and had won 3 in a row before the back to back decision losses to stevenson & siver.

Im just hoping we get to see Fisher/Stout 3.

Too bad Stevenson made him quit.

Fisher should win this one. He definitely doesn't deserve to be cut yet, although I say the same thing about Jardine.

However, I think it's safe to say that Spencer isn't the fighter he once was. He can still put on exciting fights, but he's not a good match for top competition.

I would love to see Stout v. Fisher 3 after this fight.
