UFC Fight Night 11: Spencer Fisher out against Din Thomas with staph infection

spencer fisher ufcSpencer Fisher has withdrawn from his upcoming lighweight bout with Din Thomas at UFC Fight Night 11 on September 19 because of a staph infection, according to a recent MySpace message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.
