In another three-round battle, Sam Stout (17-7-1 MMA, 6-6 UFC) on Friday wrapped up a rare MMA trilogy with Spencer Fisher (24-8 MMA, 9-7 UFC).

But it likely will be the last fight for Fisher, who had hinted in the weeks leading up to the rubber match that it might be his final bout before retirement.

After his unanimous decision victory at UFC on FX 4, Stout paid tribute to his opponent.

"We've spent 45 minutes in that cage together," Stout said at the post-fight press conference, which MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) attended. "We've got a bond together that is a pretty rare thing – to go through a trilogy like that and have three wars with the same opponent. My hat's off to him. He's a class act. We spoke after the fight. If I get out of the press conference before they stop selling drinks tonight, I'm going to go buy him a beer."

I always liked Fisher, dude came to bang every fight. He may not have been the most gifted fighter but he always kept things interesting

Fisher was always one of my favorites, especially around the time of Stout-Fisher I. They were both on eight fight winning streaks going in to that match. I enjoyed every single fight in their trilogy as much as Griffin-Bonnar I, and in my opinion their first fight was almost as huge for the sport. Maybe not in terms of ratings, but certainly in terms of "Holy Shit" factor.

Even if the only thing you can say about him is he's a tough dude that's still not bad at all

Fisher bursted onto the scene around the same time I started watching the sport. Since the beginning I've always rooted for him. He's one of those guys that doesn't make excuses and he has heart for days. Fisher always comes to fight and he'll stand toe to toe with anyone that wants to do it. He'll be missed in the sport.

That's a good comparison.
