Lauzon-Stout Agreed for UFC 108
Lauzon and Sam Stout have
agreed to face off in a lightweight contest at UFC 108 on Jan. 2 at
the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
MMAMania.com was the first to report the matchup Monday, and Lauzon
confirmed to Sherdog.com that he’d signed and returned his bout
agreement to the promotion on Tuesday.
Stout earned a unanimous decision against Matt Wiman at
UFC 97 last April in Montreal, but was sent to the sidelines after
Nover collapsed backstage hours before their bout at UFC Fight
Night 19 on Sept. 16 in Oklahoma City, Okla.
Lauzon returns to the Octagon after undergoing surgery for a torn
ACL and meniscus on March 8. Prior to the surgery, the 25-year-old
had reeled off two straight victories against Kyle Bradley
at UFC Fight Night 15 in September 2008 and Jeremy
Stephens at UFC Fight Night 17 last February.
“I’m very happy with this fight,” Lauzon told Sherdog.com Tuesday.
“Sam is very tough and has a great stand-up game. His wrestling and
ground game have jumped with every fight and I expect nothing less
from him in this one.”
