Spencer Fisher Out, Kenny Florian In, For Next Edition Of 'UFC Fight Night'

On September 19, Spencer Fisher will be unable to fight Din Thomas, because Fisher has been sidelined with a staph infection in his knee (which is also currently affecting other MFS fighters, most notably Tim Sylvia and Drew McFedries).

Kenny Florian (still recovering from a hand injury, which he received during his last fight), originally scheduled to fight in November, has stepped in to replace Fisher, which will mark Florian's fourth fight in less than a year (and third since April).

Here's the updated lineup, as it presently stands:
