The UFC has made another change to this month’s UFC on FOX 8 as Spencer Fisher is out of his fight against Yves Edwards and replacing him in the bout will be Daron Cruickshank.
UFC officials announced the change on Thursday afternoon and the new fight will take place on the preliminary card on FX.
UFC on FOX 8 takes place on July 27th from KeyArena in Seattle and will be headlined by Demetrious Johnson defending the UFC flyweight title against John Moraga.
Cruickshank (12-3) has won two of his three fights since entering the UFC through The Ultimate Fighter 15. After winning his first two fights in the promotion, he was defeated at UFC 158 against John Makdessi. It was his first defeat since 2011 and snapped a six fight winning streak.
Edwards (42-19-1) has gone 4-3 since returning to the UFC in 2010 and is 2-2 in his last four fights. His last win came at UFC on FOX 5 in Seattle against Jeremy Stephens, which he won the knockout of the night bonus for his first round victory. He was recently defeated by Isaac Vallie-Flagg at UFC 156 by split decision.
