Ok, I'm reluctant to write this because I don't want to create a firestorm or fan the flames of a horrible forum rumor.

But, there are a few odd things happening with the Hermes Franca-Spencer Fisher bout scheduled for tomorrow night at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.

Specifically, a few sportsbooks have removed the fight from their betting lines. And has even replaced Fisher with Diego Saraieva (8-4-1).

This all comes on the heels of an article today from in which Fisher talks about the fight in great detail. For all I know, however, the feature could have been written weeks ago.

Hopefully, this is all one huge misunderstanding. I'm looking forward to the Fisher-Franca bout, which will most likely determine the next challenger to Sean Sherk's 155-pound belt.

As of now, Fisher is still listed on the fight card at However, it's not like the section is updated on the hour.

Nothing official or concrete has been announced — like I said earlier, just some weird things going on.
