By FCF Staff
The Ultimate Fighting Championship has confirmed two more bouts for its first trip to Winnipeg, Manitoba on June 15th, as lightweight Sam Stout will take on Isaac Vallie-Flagg and welterweight Sean Pierson will battle TJ Waldburger.
Stout (19-8-1) is coming off a split decision win over Caros Fodor at UFC 157 last month, while Vallie-Flagg (14-3-1) earned a split decision victory over Yves Edwards at UFC 156, in what was his Octagon debut.
Pierson (13-6) hasn’t fought since September when he worked his way to a unanimous decision win over Lance Benoist at UFC 152, and Waldburger (16-7) choked out Nick Catone with a triangle-choke in his last outing, which took place at the TUF 16 Finale in December.
UFC 161 will be hosted by Winnipeg’s MTS Centre and will feature bantamweight interim champ Renan Barao vs. Eddie Wineland in the main event.
