"Everybody who's fought Joe and beat Joe has fought for the title after that so I'd imagine myself to be right there in that top division. I think Joe's the same fighter. He doesn't like to get punched, he doesn't like to get hit. The reason he stood the last couple of times was because he was forced to, couldn't take the guys down. (He) couldn't deal with Diego so he was forced to stand with him. I think he's going to be looking to take me down absolutely this time. Every time, every time, every time. I know he's looking for that single-leg (takedown). That's his thing and I'm going to try and make him pay for it every time."
Lightweight veteran Spencer Fisher drops a few not-so-subtle hints to 680 News about his gameplan for his upcoming fight with Joe Stevenson at UFC 104: "Machida vs. Shogun" on October 24. "The King" is coming into this fight having won three straight — but will that momentum be enough to stop the takedowns of Joe "Daddy" -- even if he knows they're coming? I guess we’ll find out soon enough. Who ya’ got?
