    This should be a solid fight, but look for Nover to win via sub.

  • BigDave says:

    Nover soon to be 0-3 and out of the UFC. Stout is to strong and to well rounded not to mention far more experienced and training with team tompkins means he is going to be ready. Stout has only ever been stopped in a fight twice both to the same dude and once was in his debut the other three losses where by decision to Etim, Clementi, and Fisher (who he beat by decision aswell). Nover got tko’d in his last fight to a mid level guy in Kyle bradley and before that lost a boring unanimous decision to Efrain Escudero. I don’t see Nover getting out of the first round yet again. Stout will get his ninth career tko/ko in round 1

    “Nover soon to be 0-3 and out of the UFC.”

    Im leaning towards this. So much for the next Anderson or GSP.

  • Bullylover says:

    I wonder if Dana regrets hyping Nover up like he did when he was in tuf. Nover looked good against mid-tier fighters but throw him in to the deep end and i bet he’ll crumble. This fight is either going to make him or break him but honestly stout is to experienced and fought way better fighters to lose to this guy. Just my own opinion.tko rd 2

    O’CANADA…..Stout is going to crush him badly
    great point edub

  • KTru says:

    Stout may win, but I am still pissed because he did not win that fight against Wiman.

    yeah I am bitter

  • edub says:

    HAAAAAAA. Thats how I feel about the Curran/Mizugaki fight.

  • moosebaby02 says:

    KTru I was on the fence on that fight but I will take it. Me being bias

  • CMT says:

    Stout is going to knock the GSP out of Nover. He thinks fainting on TUF is embrassing, just wait. Anybody out there tried P90X? The hair on my arms are sore.

  • xtreme_machine says:

    fight of the night


    i take Sam Stout via unanimous decision

  • Angry Mike says:

    Stout wins, probably by tko or ko.

    Cantwell and Stann again? This is their third fight, isn’t it? Hopefully Stann’s learned something more than “punch lots and punch hard.”

    Maynard’s going to teach Huerta why he’s called The Bully. Huerta will have to get on his bike and hope for a decision on points. Don’t see that happening, though.
