UFC Fight Night 19 is filling up quickly. One of the latest additions to the card is a proposed lightweight bout between Kyle Bradley (14-6 MMA, 1-2 UFC) and Sam Stout (14-5-1 MMA, 3-4 UFC).
The possible match-up was first reported in a report on MMAJunkie.com and FiveOuncesOfPain.com has since confirmed the news of the bout from sources close to the negotiations. The two fighters have verbally agreed and written agreements are expected to be dispersed within the week.
At the current rate that the UFC has been cutting fighters, this particular bout appears to be a must win situation for both fighters.
Bradley is no stranger to a must win situation in the UFC. After suffering two back to back TKO losses to Chris Lytle and Joe Lauzon, Bradley rebounded with a TKO victory over the highly touted Ultimate Fighter alum Phillipe Nover.
Stout also looks to continue his winning ways after back to back decision losses followed by a subsequent decision victory over Matt Wiman at UFC 97. The losses came at the hands of Terry Etim and Bradley’s own training partner, Rich Clementi.
The event will be held at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City on Sept. 16 and will be broadcast live on Spike TV. Immediately following the event will be the debut episode of the highly anticipated “Ultimate Fighter 10”.
