If I picked Ecklund to beat Stout, I'm definitely picking Clementi to beat Stout.

Maybe Stout will be my fighter who I always pick against and get pissed that I didn't recognize the overall talent.

Although Stout showed improved takedown defense in his fight against Eklund, Clementi is much more skilled in the takedown department as well on the ground. Stout if it stays standing; Clementi if it goes to the ground.

cant stand clementi's high girly voice but i am glad he choked out melvin, that being said stout is going to do what melvin couldnt, defend against a strict ground fighter completly underrated TD chuck liddell style, clementi will never be in the top 10 and even if he gets past stout his step up fight will be his downfall, like a fight with tyson, edgar, guida or huerta for example, and could you imagine what penn would do to this guy? complete pawnage

Clementi looked good against Melvin. He did slip one time and catch that huge bomb, but recovered very quickly. He has a good chance against Stout IMO

this is a good matchup for rich, stout is good but his ground game is weak, and clementi is very savvy on the ground, i think rich will sub him in round 1.

I think this could be a very exciting fight, but I definately have Rich Clementi winning early in the fight, kind of like Stout's fight with Kenny Florian.
