Two tested veterans of the UFC's lightweight division will lock horns for a third time as Sam Stout and Spencer Fisher have agreed to face off on the UFC on FX 4 card in Atlantic City on June 22nd, according to Sportsnet.ca:
Sam Stout and Spencer Fisher will renew their rivalry as a trilogy bout between the two lightweights is slated for UFC on FX 4, a source told Sportsnet's (Showdown) Joe Ferraro.
The two strikers first squared off back in 2006 when Stout, who was making his UFC debut, took the victory via split decision in a instant classic that ranks in at #88 on the UFC's 100 Greatest Fights DVD set. Fisher got his revenge when he got the nod via unanimous decision when they rematched the following year. Both men have faltered in recent bouts, with Thiago Tavares coincidentally besting the both of them in his last two fights, and Fisher in particular has looked underwhelming in two consecutive losses. Not only are both men desperate to get back in the win column, but they'll both be looking to put a stamp on their trilogy in decisive fashion come June.
