Sam Stout and Yves Edwards at UFC 131In the co-main event of UFC on FX 4, lightweights Sam Stout and Spencer Fisher went to war for a third time.  On this night, the Canadian Stout was able to get it done once again with a unanimous decision victory.

The two lightweights wasted no time to get things going.  Fisher had the first half of the round and landed crisp combinations and counters on the inside.  Stout later changed levels and scored a takedown and chipped away with some short elbows in the guard.  Toward the end of the round, Stout scored another takedown, but Fisher got back to his feet and went for a spinning backfist.

In the second round, Fisher started strong early with his hands, but could not keep the momentum going as the round wore on.  Stout started landing solid roundhouse kicks to the midsection and scored with another takedown near the end of the round.  Stout finished the round on top landing small strikes in Fisher’s guard.

Then, in round three, Stout started showing more of his improved wrestling with two solid takedowns.  Stout was able to land a double against the cage and a single.  The round closed with the two going for big punches, which excited the Atlantic City crowd.

All three judges scored the fight a unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) in favor of Stout.
