Report: Stout-Etim Set for UFC 89 in England

Fresh off signing a brand new four-fight contract extension with the UFC, popular Canadian lightweight Sam Stout will attempt to bounce back from a close split decision loss to Rich Clementi by taking on Terry Etim at UFC 89: Bisping vs Leben in October.

The news comes from a report by Mike Russell of The Fight Network, who learned of the fight through Shawn Tompkins’, the primary trainer for Stout at Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas. Stout was originally rumored to be fighting Paul Kelly at the event, however Kelly reportedly pulled out of the fight, citing concerns over his potential inability to make the lightweight limit.

Prior to his loss to Clementi in April, Stout pieced together two consecutive wins. After stopping Martin Grandmont with strikes in a successful defense of his TKO lightweight title last September, Stout went on to dominate UFC newcomer Per Eklund en route to an unanimous decision victory in January.

After scoring an impressive submission of Matt Grice in his UFC debut, Etim has fallen on hard times recently, losing his last two bouts inside the confines of the promotion. Just like Stout, he too lost his most recent bout to Clementi, an unanimous decision defeat suffered at UFC 84: Ill Will in May.

Hometown Hero: St. Pierre Stops Serra in Montreal

One year removed from his original upset loss to Matt Serra, Georges St. Pierre was finally able to avenge the defeat, dominating Serra on the mat over two rounds en route to regaining his UFC welterweight title in UFC 83’s historic main event.

The raucous crowd packed inside Montreal, Quebec’s Bell Centre saw St. Pierre surprise many in the opening seconds of the fight as he opted to take Serra down. After being on the receiving end of an array of strikes, Serra eventually worked his way back to his feet before finding himself on his back once again.

Any chances for another first-round Serra knockout were spoiled in a big way. With a mouse forming under Serra’s right eye, the Long Island native came out from his corner looking to throw down at the start of the second round. St. Pierre unfortunately had a different idea.

St. Pierre scored yet another early takedown. Serra mounted a bit of offense once the fight hit the feet, connecting with a head kick. However with fatigue setting in, Serra was unable to capitalize, allowing St. Pierre to land a handful of stiff jabs before shooting in for a takedown.

Once on the mat, St. Pierre unleashed a barrage of unanswered punches and knees to the body that forced Serra to cover up and referee Yves Lavigne to ultimately stop the fight, handing St. Pierre the title that he likely should have never lost in the first place.

“My strategy going in was to make it a physical fight,” St. Pierre said in his post-fight interview with Kenny Florian, who filled in for usual color commentator Joe Rogan. “I wanted to make him tired as much as I could because I know have the conditioning. I was trying to mix it up as much as I could.”
