Sam Stout and Yves Edwards at UFC 131The UFC on Friday added another bout, this on an all-Canadian affair, to its UFC 154 fight card slated to feature Georges St-Pierre vs. Carlos Condit on Nov. 17 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

Home country fighters Sam Stout and John Makdessi have agreed fight as part of the UFC 154 supporting cast, according to the UFC’s Canadian office.

Stout (17-8-1) is 3-2 over his last five fights, but is looking to keep the momentum rolling as he’s coming off of a UFC on FX 4 Fight of the Night victory over Spencer Fisher back in June.

Makdessi (9-2) is at the opposite end of the spectrum, just trying to get back on the winning track. After winning his first two UFC fights, he has since loss back-to-back bouts in the Octagon to Dennis Hallman and Anthony Njokuani.

UFC 154 features the return of Georges St-Pierre to the Octagon after more than a year and a half on the sidelines due to injury. He will attempt to unify his UFC welterweight title with Condit’s interim belt in the night’s main event.
