A lightweight bout between Spencer Fisher and Yves Edwards is nearly a signed deal, as the accomplished vets have verbally agreed to fight at the upcoming, UFC on FOX 8 card in Seattle. The July 27th bout will be hosted by the city’s KeyArena.

A source close to the fight has confirmed to Full Contact Fighter that verbal agreements are in place, confirming a report from MMA Junkie, which says the bout will be finalized shortly.

Edwards (42-19-1) is coming off a split decision loss to Isaac Vallie-Flagg in February, after knocking out Jeremy Stephens at UFC on FOX 5 in December.

Fisher (24-9) will be looking to end a three fight losing streak, as the Iowa fighter is coming off defeats to Thiago Tavares, Ross Pearson and most recently Sam Stout.

Some of the other bouts that have been confirmed for UFC on FOX 8 include Rory MacDonald vs. Jake Ellenberger, Robbie Lawler vs. Tarec Saffiedine, and Mac Danzig vs. Melvin Guillard.
