Spencer "The King" Fisher was scratched off the upcoming Ultimate Fight Night 13 fight card due to a shoulder injury he suffered during a training session. The King will have to sit this one out and watch UFC newcomer Ryan Roberts take his place against Marcus Aurelio.
The former PrideFC fighter, Marcus Aurelio (currently 15-5-0), had a rough start in the UFC when he lost to the highly energized Clay Guida at UFC 74 (results and pics) via a split decision. Aurelio was able to quickly bounce back and redeem himself when he defeated Luke Caudillo at UFC 78 via TKO-strikes in the first round. The American Top Team competitor will be looking to add on another record when he faces his new opponent Ryan "Are You Ready?" Roberts on April 2nd.
Roberts will enter the UFC octagon for the very first time with an impressive MMA record of 8 wins and only 2 losses. He’ll be looking to add on another win now that he has a 2-fight winning streak going. Two great fighters, so expect an interesting match.
