Both fighters are 36. Edwards has competed since 1997, Fisher since 2002.
Finally, after a combined 95 pro MMA fights, the two longtime lightweights will cross paths. Edwards and Fisher will meet at UFC on FOX 8 at Seattle's Key Arena on July 27. MMAFighting confirmed the bout, which was initially reported by USA Today.
Edwards (42-19-1), who was considered by many the uncrowned UFC lightweight champion during the period when the company didn't recognize a 155-pound champion, will be making his 18th trip to the Octagon. Edwards' last fight was a split-decision loss to Isaac Vaillie-Flagg in a tightly contested bout at UFC 156.
