Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Video: Stout Talks Team Tompkins’ Legacy and How They Are Rallying Behind Hominick Ahead of UFC 140

(“He’s never going to be forgotten. I think about him still every day and I don’t think that’s ever going to change.” – Sam Stout)

We caught up with consummate crowd favorite Sam Stout over the weekend at the MMA Expo in Toronto and we touched on a number of topics, including how the healing process is going for him and his Team Tompkins teammates since losing friend and mentor Shawn Tompkins. We also spoke about how the team is rallying behind Mark Hominick this weekend as “The Machine” gets set to take to the Octagon for the first time in his career without “The Coach” in his corner Saturday night when he takes on “The Korean Zombie.”

Stout is candid about the affect Tompkins’ death had on him and he reveals the team’s plans moving forward. Definitely a must-watch interview.

Check it out below.

Editor’s note: If you’re wondering why Sam’s eyes are diverted throughout the interview, it’s because a line-up of girls who wanted to talk to the affable Canadian began to form beside us as we conducted the interview. They all waited until his scheduled signing time at the Xyience booth was up to come back to chat with him and were waiting patiently at both sides of the booth.

Fuck em, they deleted my shit a few times before. Likely someone has or had ties to either the fighters or the dead guy.
They also deleted some other guys, a friend of Tompkins who knew him to like to do blow, too much. As if that is too bad of habit to post?
Remember those that sensor, have power or control issues.
Most likely guy is the editor Russell from Canada, he likely knew him or his fighters.

i think it is clear that you're the one acting like a sensitive bitch. go hug your bros before they die.
BryanF- December 9, 2011 at 12:31 pm
yeah, bro. Someone needs to find this dude's mother and have her give him a hug.
frndlylion- December 9, 2011 at 12:03 pm
I recommend you get some professional help with your social issues. I cant imagine your any more pleasant to the people around you in real life. What a sad and lonely person you must be. You obviously also have a LOT of time on your hands.

Do you need a hug?

"It’s not enough already and won’t ever be" great point bro. in a years time when cage-potato re-interviews anyone from that team i hope they continue to make the main line of questioning about tompkins death.
jfjjfjff- December 9, 2011 at 11:44 am
GUYS THIS POST IS TOTALY SRS GUYS. NO DISPRESPECTING THE DEAD... oh wait let's imply that sam stout dick is getting the better of his mourning because he can hardly concentrate in discussing his dead trainer "because a line-up of girls" was forming.
jfjjfjff- December 9, 2011 at 11:42 am
you cant even get your fucking spam protection together on this piece of shit but you are selectively going to remove my comments?
jfjjfjff- December 9, 2011 at 11:40 am
why am i being censored on this site? the guy died 4 months ago and you all are still making it an issue. when does it end? when you stop moping about it.
BryanF- December 9, 2011 at 11:39 am
great, now i want to learn what the asshole already said.
jfjjfjff- December 9, 2011 at 11:36 am
"If no, then shut the fuck up." and if yes? i can say whatever the fuck i want. thank you for confirming.

at risk of sounding callous

That's where you should have stopped. This statement demonstrates that you knew the comment you were leaving was inappropriate and that should have been the end of it. Have you ever lost your best friend? Have you ever lost your brother? If no, then shut the fuck up.

@jfjjfjff, you're completely ignorant and if I was a mod on cagepotatoe I'd delete your post for being too ignorant and void of compassion. It's not enough already and won't ever be, Shawn Thompkins will always be remembered and people like you need to go away and stop posting ignorant words.
