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.

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 - ???

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.

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
