Stout vs. Fisher I Wiki Update Wiki
Neither Sam Stout nor Spencer Fisher has ever contended for a major world championship, but they have been involved in some of the best lightweight fights of all time, two of which came against one another.
In their first meeting, at UFC 58 in March of 2006, Fisher was forced to take the fight on short notice, dropping an obscene amount of weight the week of the fight. He was drained and clearly not at peak physical condition during the fight, but still managed to put on one of the best fights of all time, giving Stout everything he could handle through the three-round affair.
Combining pinpoint striking, a granite chin, and impressive takedown defense, Stout’s perfect blend of offensive volume striking and defensive footwork kept him one step ahead of Fisher’s trademark aggressive style. In one of the more memorable exchanges, both fighters went airborne for a split second as they continued to strike, trip, and reset to strike again.
After Stout took the close Decision win, it earned Fight of the Night honors with flying colors. The matchup was so popular that fans demanded a rematch one year later. Their next bout served as the main event of a Spike TV-televised Fight Night in 2007. Meanwhile Stout, who earned a paltry $4,000 for the UFC 58 bout with Fisher, had moved up to $65,000 for his UFC 113 bout with Jeremy Stephens just two years later – proof of what a couple of exciting performances could do for the earning potential of a young fighter.
