Spencer Fisher says Joe Lauzon is next

spencer fisher wants joe lauzonSpencer Fisher wants Joe Lauzon. Joe Lauzon wants Spencer Fisher.

And according to "The King" in his post-fight video interview on UFC.com, the lightweight match up is more than likely up next for both fighters.

Fisher — who outslugged Sam Stout in an epic three-round war last night at UFC Fight Night 10 — beat Lauzon's younger brother, Dan, at UFC 64.

Lauzon — who's wrapping up his stint on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 5 — upset Fisher's Miletich training partner, Jens Pulver, at UFC 63.

The two have some marketable history ... I can already hear the pre-fight promos. It also happens to be a great match up between two aggressive fighters.

As a semifinalist on TUF 5, Lauzon will be in action at TUF 5 Finale on June 23, whether it's in the championship or consolation bout. And since it's less than two weeks away, both fighters have the benefit of timing.

While not yet official, let's hope this happens sooner rather than later.
