Sam Stout welcomes Cody McKenzie to the UFC’s Lightweight division at this weekends UFC on Fox 9 event. McKenzie first competed as a Lightweight on the Ultimate Fighter, but has competed as a Featherweight since the UFC first introduced the division back in 2011.
Cody McKenzie currently holds a record of 3 wins and 3 losses in the UFC, which includes 2 wins in his last 3 fights. Sam Stout will be the toughest opponent he has ever faced and he will need to be at his absolute best to cause an upset on Saturday night.
Sam Stout is plagued by a trend that he is struggling to shake off. Every time he wins a fight he then goes on to lose his next fight. Since Stout suffered a loss in his last fight, he’ll be hoping that this trend continues by picking up a valuable win against McKenzie.
OUR PICK FOR THIS FIGHT…
Cody McKenzie’s strategy for winning fights is to take his opponents down and submit them. That’s going to be difficult to do on Saturday night, as Sam Stout is physically stronger and has excellent take down defence. Cody McKenzie will struggle to get this fight to the ground and that’s going to be the difference in this fight.
If McKenzie does manage to get this fight to the ground, then his biggest chance of causing an upset will be his dangerous guillotine choke. A submission that he has used to beat opponents in 12 of his 14 career wins. Sam Stout lost his last fight by guillotine choke submission, but I expect Stout to have learnt from his mistakes and be prepared for anything that McKenzie throws at him.
Sam Stout is a well rounded fighter and has fought a much higher level of opponent than Cody McKenzie. He’s bigger, stronger and has all the skills necessary to win this fight.
