Sam Stout vs Isaac Vallie-Flagg fight confirmed for UFC 161 In Winnipeg

Joe Camporeale-US PRESSWIRE

It was recently confirmed that recent lightweight winners -- Sam Stout and Isaac Vallie-Flagg -- will collide at UFC 161, which takes place at MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, on June 15, 2013.

The inaugural Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) visit to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, has added yet another mixed martial arts (MMA) fight, this one set for the Lightweight division.

Sam Stout, with a 15-fight tenure with the promotion, will give Isaac Vallie-Flagg his second scrap inside the Octagon since moving over from Strikeforce, when the pair meet up inside the MTS Centre on June 15, 2013.

The 155-pound bout was announced on the UFC Canada twitter account.

Stout, who currently stands at 3-2 since 2011, has had a bumpy road as of late. "Hands of Stone" has been unable to put together more than two consecutive wins in the UFC, and he has fallen apart almost every time he's gotten a step up in competition.

Nonetheless, the Canadian sports a fairly calculated striking approach, with a respectable ground game to boot; however, so far he has lacked the skills to place him in the elite-level of the weight class.

Vallie-Flagg, meanwhile, made his promotional debut last month at UFC 156, taking home a split decision victory over Yves Edwards in a hotly contested bout. In the early going, Edwards was getting the best out of the striking exchanges, but Vallie-Flagg was able to turn it around in the later stages of the fight, winning in tight clinch exchanges and coming up with a win.

Prior to his Octagon debut, Vallie-Flagg put together two solid wins in Strikeforce, including a split decision victory over Gesias Cavalcante.

UFC 161 will feature Bantamweight champion Renan Barao, putting his 135-pound interim title on the line against No. 1 division contender Eddie Wineland in the main event of the evening. Two pivotal light heavyweight bouts -- Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Mauricio Rua and Dan Henderson vs. Rashad Evans -- are also currently slated to compete on the pay-per-view (PPV) main card.
