Spencer Fisher has withdrawn from his upcoming lighweight bout with Din Thomas at UFC Fight Night 11 on September 19 because of a staph infection, according to a recent MySpace message from "The King."
Here's the snip:
"Hey everybody, I just want all of you to know that I am out of my fight in September with Din due to a staph infection in my knee."
Fisher and Thomas were booked as the main event of the evening, pitting two of the top 155-pound figthers in the division up against one another.
No replacement for Fisher has been announced at this time. But one would assume that it will have to be a well-known name if he is supposed to be the other half of a nationally televised headline fight.
In other action on the Spike television network special, former 185-pound contender Mike Swick is slated to make his welterweight debut against Jonathan Goulet and Chris Leben and Terry Martin are scheduled to bang it out in what should be a hard-hitting middleweight clash.
