Report: Marcus Aurelio vs. Spencer Fisher at UFC Fight Night 13

From MMA Junkie:

A UFC Fight Night 13 event planned for April 2 will include a lightweight bout between Spencer Fisher (20-4 MMA, 5-3 UFC) and Marcus Aurelio (15-5 MMA, 1-1 UFC).

Sources closes to both fighters told ( that the rumored bout has been accepted by both fighters. Fisher, specifically, told some of his fellow fighters about the bout earlier today.

More good matchmaking by the UFC. After losing to Frankie Edgar, Fisher’s stock dropped in the stacked lightweight division. After Aurelio’s recent victory over Luke Caudillo, his stock has risen a bit. For Fisher, a win over the PRIDE veteran would be a nice win for his career as well as a nice boost back into the mix of things in the lightweight division. For Aurelio, a victory over Spencer Fisher would legitimize his place in the UFC’s lightweight division and send him on the right path toward contention at 155 lbs. UFC Fight Night 13 is shaping up to be a good one, with a rumored bout between Matt Hamill and Stephan Bonnar also in the works.
