London, Ontario native Sam “Hands of Stone” Stout will be taking on UFC newcomer James Krause this Saturday, as the Ultimate Fighting Championship comes to Winnipeg, Manitoba for the very first time.
Stout last fought former Strikeforce competitor Caros Fodor at UFC 157, and welcomed the AMC Pankration fighter to the UFC with a split decision loss.
According to Sam, he could have done better in that fight.
“I’m happy with my performance [in the fight against Fodor] because I got the win,” He told MM-eh, “but that being said I think I could have done better — I just wish I had a little more gas in the tank.”
Any good fighter knows the importance of growing from past experience. Stout discusses how he has tailored his training camp to ensure he is in optimal fighting form for UFC 161.
