UFC 137: Sam Stout vs Dennis Siver booked for Oct. 29 in Las Vegas

New, comments


Fight fans are in for a real treat this Halloween weekend. (Too easy?)

That's because the UFC 137: "St. Pierre vs. Diaz" event, which will take place on Oct. 29 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, is absolutely loaded.

Today it was stacked even further with the addition of an explosive lightweight showdown pitting Sam Stout vs. Dennis Siver, as reported by

How fun does this match-up sound?

Stout put his "Hands of Stone" to good use at UFC 131 on June 11 when he sent Yves Edwards to la-la land with the always enjoyable one-hitter quitter. It was his first knockout win in nearly four years.

Why not see if he can do it again in his next fight against a tough-as-nails kickboxer?

Dennis Siver has unwittingly been cast into the role of "guy who earned a decision he shouldn't have" thanks to a somewhat questionably call by judges during his UFC 132 fight against Matt Wiman.

It shouldn't be held against the Russian-born German stick of dynamite, though. He's 8-1 in his last nine bouts and has improved remarkably since returning for his second stint with the world's largest fight promotion.

But can he reach the top? The journey continues against Stout.

UFC 137 will feature Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre putting his title -- and legacy -- on the line when he goes head on against former Strikeforce king Nick Diaz. The co-main event will highlight a potential number one contender bout pitting B.J. Penn vs. Carlos Condit.

Mirko Filipovic vs. Roy Nelson and Matt Mitrione vs. Cheick Kongo have also been announced for the card, as well as the Octagon debut of Hatsu Hioki against George Roop.
