Frankie Edgar confirms UFC 78 match vs. Spencer Fisher

UFC lightweight contender Frankie Edgar joined Matt Cava of and myself as a special guest on the latest edition of Inside the Cage Radio that was taped earlier this afternoon.

Edgar addressed a number of topics, including a rumored matchup between he and Spencer Fisher for UFC 78 on November 17 in Newark, New Jersey. Edgar confirmed the fight for both Matt and I.

Edgar vs. Fisher is going to be a hell of a match. He didn’t say whether it would be televised or not, but I’d be shocked if it wasn’t. Edgar will be fighting in front of hometown fans on the show and Fisher is an exciting fighter. To make that match and not televise it would be a crime.

The crowd should especially be into it. Edgar will have a lot of friends and family in the building but I am anticipating that Fisher will get a strong reaction as well. There are MFS affiliates in both Philadelphia and Atlantic City and there’s definitely a degree of loyalty when it comes to MFS and all of its affiliate schools.

EliteXC play-by-play announcer Mauro Ranallo was also on the show in what was an awesome segment. I think everyone is really going to enjoy it. Expect the show to be available sometime tomorrow. Check back here for an update or just e-mail me at and request to join the 5 Oz. mailing list.
