TFN is also reporting that lightweight fighter Sam Stout will be returning to the UFC. There’s a lot of talk right now that Stout will meet Spencer Fisher on a future UFC Fight Night card to be televised on Spike TV. The two fought each other in March ’06 at UFC 58, with Stout winning be decision.
Hominick has a winning MMA record of 13-6-0 but hasn’t fought in the octagon since a unanimous decision win over Jorge Gurgel at UFC Fight Night 5 last June. He has gone 2-1 since the victory outside of the UFC in TKO.
Stout beat Spencer Fisher at UFC 58 in early 2006 via split decision making a rematch all the more likely. His most recent UFC fight was unsuccessful losing to Kenny Florian on the season finale of The Ultimate Fighter 3. Beyond the UFC, Stout is the lightweight champion of TKO.
Caplan also mentioned in the post that Jeff Joslin will fight in June or July likely at UFC 72 or 73. Joslin fell to Josh Koscheck at UFC Fight Night 7 in December.
