UFC on FOX 9: Sam Stout-Cody McKenzie Set
By FCF Staff
UFC on FOX 9 has received its eleventh bout, as the promotion has announced that lightweight vet Sam Stout will fight former TUF competitor Cody McKenzie. The December 14th card will be hosted by Sacramento’s Sleep Train Arena.
McKenzie (14-3) will be returning to 155 pounds after he was stopped by featherweight contender Chad Mendes, before scoring a decision win over Leonard Garcia at UFC 159 in April. McKenzie, whose feared guillotine choke has submitted 11 opponents to date, has gone 3-3 in the UFC.
Stout (19-9-1) is coming off a third round, submission loss (via guillotine choke) to James Krause at UFC 161 in June, after earning a split decision victory over Caros Fodor in February.
UFC on FOX 9 will be headlined by a lightweight bout between champion Antony Pettis and challenger Josh Thomson.
