The bout is not official but MMAJunkie.com has cited a source close to the fight who said it’s in the process of being finalized.
Stevenson is coming off an impressive performance over Nate Diaz in June. Stevenson dominated Diaz on the ground and picked up a much needed win. Before the victory over Diaz, Stevenson had lost three of his previous four fights.
Fisher most recently defeated UFC veteran Caol Uno for his third consecutive win in the organization. During his three-fight winning streak, Fisher has also defeated Shannon Gugerty and Jeremy Stephens.
Fisher has now won four of his past five fights and six of his past eight overall, which has put him back in contention for a lightweight title shot.
Should Stevenson emerge victorious, he too would once again throw his name back into the hat for a title shot down the road as well.
