Spencer “The King” Fisher will take on Marcus “Maximus” Aurelio in a main card bout at UFC Fight Night 13 in April.
The event will take place April 2nd, likely in Denver, Colorado, and will serve as the lead-in for the debut episode of The Ultimate Fighter 7. In co-main event bouts lightweights Kenny Florian and Joe Lauzon will go head-to-head and Matt Hamill and Stephan Bonnar will clash at 205 pounds.
Fisher (20-4 MMA, 5-3 UFC) started his career in the UFC strong winning four of his first five bouts over Thiago Alves, Aaron Riley, Matt Wiman, and Dan Lauzon with his lone loss at the hands of Sam Stout. Following the strong start Fisher was defeated by Hermes Franca at UFC Fight Night 8 early last year before avenging his loss to Stout in the main event of UFC Fight Night 10 in June. In his last fight, Fisher was defeated by Frankie Edgar at UFC 78 in November.
Aurelio (15-5 MMA, 1-1 UFC) is a PRIDE veteran who came to the UFC in 2007 following PRIDE’s purchase and integration with the UFC. Aurelio was easily defeated in his UFC debut by the always-tough Clay Guida though the fight was surprisingly scored a split decision. He bounced back from the debut loss with a first round TKO win over Luke Caudillo at UFC 78.
