Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) continues to stack its return to California's state capital. The latest addition is a lightweight bout between Cody McKenzie vs. Sam Stout and is set to go down on Dec. 14, 2013 at the Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento.
UFC officials announced the fight Thursday, which will be a part of the preliminary card.
McKenzie (14-3) got back into the win column with a unanimous decision victory over Leonard Garcia at UFC 159 earlier this year in New Jersey. Before that, he suffered a 31-second stoppage against Chad Mendes at UFC 148, one that left him crumpled on the mat.
The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 12 star is best known for his modified guillotine choke, which he has used to defeat his opponents 11 times in 14 career wins.
That doesn't bode well for Stout (19-9), who is looking to bounce back from a submission loss to James Krause at UFC 161 last June. "Hands of Stone" was forced to tap with 13 seconds left in the fight to a (uh oh) guillotine choke. He hasn't lost two in a row since 2008, but it has been two years since his last winning streak.
