Stout/Tavares & Barboza/Etim Booked for UFC 142 in Rio


(Don’t be fooled by its innocent exterior, the Stout will knock you out quicker than you can say “10.6 percent.”) 

A pair of lightweight contests have recently been announced for the UFC’s return to Brazil this January. Fresh off his lightning quick victory over Edward Faaloloto at UFC 138, Terry Etim will be taking a big step up in competition when he faces Brazilian phenom Edson Barboza.

Barboza has gone 3-0 in his UFC career, notching wins over TUF 9 winner Ross Pearson and WEC KO artist Anthony Njokuani. Etim, on the other hand, had rattled off four victories in his last five fights before being sidelined by a rib injury for over a year. Having fought six of his nine UFC contests on his home soil, it will be interesting to see how Etim reacts to the foreign crowd, especially one that has shown the capacity to commit bloodshed before.

UFC 142 will also feature the return of Canadian UFC veteran Sam Stout, who, after knocking out Yves Edwards in brutal fashion at UFC 131, Dennis Siver in the wake of trainer Shawn Tompkins’ death. Stout will be taking on fellow UFC vet Thiago Tavares, who recently rebounded from a knockout loss to Shane Roller back at UFC Live 3 with a TKO of his own over Spencer Fisher at UFC 134. Fun fact, both men have fought 11 times in the UFC, with Stout coming away 7-4  and Tavares 6-4-1.

UFC 142 is set to go down January 14th at the HSBC Arena in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.

wtf does this mean...

Having fought six of his nine UFC contests on his home soil, it will be interesting to see how Etim reacts to the foreign crowd, especially one that Sam Stout, who, after knocking out Yves Edwards in brutal fashion at UFC 131, reluctantly pulled out from his UFC 137 contest with Dennis Siver in the wake of trainer Shawn Tompkins’ death.

A Mountie as a mascot for a beer that is brewed in maple syrup barrels, and it is not made in Canada? What a fraud!
