Lightweight fighter Spencer “The King” Fisher has reportedly signed a new four-fight contract with the Ultimate Fighting Championship and will face Kurt Warburton at UFC 120 in October.
MMAJunkie learned about the new deal from a source close to the slugger. Fisher is coming off back-to-back losses in the Octagon. That run was preceded by a three-fight win streak.
His most recent defeat came at the hands of Dennis Siver at “The Ultimate Fighter 11 Finale” where he lost via unanimous decision.
Warburton currently trains out of the famed Wolfslair MMA Academy in the U.K. with the likes of Michael Bisping and former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.
The bout will be Warburton’s first fight in the UFC, but the lightweight out of Liverpool does own a win over current UFC lightweight Ross Pearson back in 2007.
UFC 120 is expected t0 take place inside the O2 Arena in London, England on October 16th.
