UFC Quick Quote: A dominant win over Yves Edwards will prove Sam Stout is a lightweight contender

"It’s a very important fight because of all the addition of the new guys to UFC at 155 with the addition of Strikeforce and WEC. It’s a tough time. A lot of guys are trying to keep their spots and I’m one of them. I need to go out and perform well. There’s a lot of tough guys in this division but a good dominant win over a guy like Yves Edwards, who has been in the sport for so long, will show what I’m made of and show that I am a UFC contender. I think the fact I haven’t fought in so long made me a hungrier to fight. I haven’t been in there in so long I’m anxious to get in there. This one is a solid spot on Spike TV. Most people who watch pay-per-view watch Spike. A lot only watch the Spike because it’s free. It goes out to millions of people so a lot of people see you."

UFC lightweight Sam Stout (16-6-1) is fighting for job security when he goes to war against fellow longtime veteran Yves Edwards on the Spike TV "Prelims" portion of the UFC 131: "Dos Santos vs. Carwin" event this Saturday night (June 11) in Vancouver. "Hands of Stone" (via IFpress.com) has been inconsistent throughout his UFC career and recognizes that it may be do or die with the current and future influx of hungry WEC and Strikeforce lightweights. Can the talented Canadian finally break through into the upper echelon of 155-pounders? Or will he fall victim to the dreaded "Thugjitsu?" Who's your pick for Saturday night?
