Stout Out, Cerrone in Against Siver at UFC 137

(Should be a decent scrap.)

MMAJunkie is reporting that Donald Cerrone (16-3) has agreed to step in for Sam Stout against Dennis Siver (19-7) at UFC 137 October 29 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.

Although it is unclear whether or not Stout is injured, it could simply be a case of the Canadian lightweight standout needing more time to deal with the sudden passing of his best friend, brother-in-law, mentor and trainer Shawn Tompkins earlier this month before fighting his first bout without “The Coach” in his corner.

Stout’s teammate Chris Horodecki backed out of a scheduled September bout in Canada last week as well and is rumored to be having a tough time dealing with the loss of Tompkins who was like a father figure to the young fighter.

The bout will be the fourth this year for Cerrone who is 5-0 in his last five outings, including three inside the UFC Octagon.

Siver is no slouch either, having won his past four fights including an impressive win over George Sotiropoulos at UFC 127 in February and a razor-close decision over Matt Wiman at UFC 132 in July.

The event will be headlined by a welterweight championship bout between former Strikeforce champ Nick Diaz and UFC 170-pound kingpin Georges St-Pierre and a number one contender match between BJ Penn and Carlos Condit.

Could Siver possibly have more roid face in this photo? Seriously, dude, don't make it that obvious.

Cerrone is a bad ass. Good for him stepping in for Stout. Although he has plenty of time, he takes the fight on short notice, again and keeps the UFC brass happy. Way to be Cowboy.

i love to watch cerrone fight but i think this is a bad one for him. he keeps his hands very wide and stays squared up to his opponent. i see a spinning back kick in his future.

^lol, Back the underdog, The Wins are that much sweeter. I know Nick's got his work cut out for him, but in my eye's BJ is a favourite coming into this fight, I think he'll sub Condit

^ way to set yourself up for a dubble dissapointment...

^ Indeed, WAR Diaz & Penn
PERPATRAITOR- August 29, 2011 at 10:54 pm
Cerrone by sub is probably right. Triangle from top is my prediction. I'll be at this fight, I can't wait! WAR DIAZ!!

Cerrone all day, Siver ain't that hot when he's facing a real striker, he got a BS decision against Wiman. So upset, I was going to this event, coming from Australia, but con sarnit I got visa troubles so I can't make it in to the good ol' US of A.
@ danomite, I'm a huge BJ fan but even I don't want to see him fight GSP again, Dude needs to get back down to lightweight

This is even a better fight for both of these guys, and the fans, than the Stout-Siver would have been. Gonna be a bad ass card.
danomite- August 29, 2011 at 5:52 pm
I got a feeling Siver is going to knock him out. Is BJ/Condit really #1 contender, or is that only if Condit wins? I mean, can you really justify giving a title shot to a guy who has won 1 of his last 4 fights? Especially when it's the only guy who couldn't make it to a decision against the champ? Oh, well, I guess when it comes to title shots it's all about who you blow...I mean know.

I just noticed the date for this card, and I bet every asshole I know will hold their Halloween party on this night. Son of a bitch.
XENOPHON- August 29, 2011 at 5:04 pm
This is a good card, better than that from Rio de Janeiro.

Cerone is a fuckin monster. Good for him, tough fight to take tho. Siver is a little wrecking ball... should be a good fight
