Sam Stout has withdrawn from his UFC 137 matchup with fellow lightweight Dennis Siver following the recent death of his longtime trainer and brother-in-law Shawn Tompkins, though the reason for his withdrawal is currently unknown, according to MMAjunkie.
A search is now underway to find a replacement to face Siver at the Oct. 27 event in a fight that is expected to be featured on the pay-per-view main card or UFC 137 prelims on Spike.
UFC 137 is headlined by welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre vs. Nick Diaz, while the UFC 137 fight card also includes BJ Penn vs. Carlos Condit, Matt Mitrione vs. Cheick Kongo, and Mirko Cro Cop vs. Roy Nelson.
