Sam Stout remembers very clearly what Joe Rogan said during a recent fight.

The longtime UFC commentator said Stout was an easy fighter to train for because he fought the same way every time. Basically, opponents knew he liked to strike, and knew he was more vulnerable on the mat.

So when Stout (19-7-1 MMA, 7-6 UFC) bucked that trend in a rubber match with Spencer Fisher (25-9 MMA, 9-8 UFC) at this past Friday's UFC on FX 4, he had Rogan's statement in mind – and also, Fisher's more accurate punches.

"I decided to go out there and do something about that in this fight," Stout told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio). "My wrestling game is something that I've been working on for a long time, and my jiu-jitsu game. I've been saying that for a long time, but I've never really shown it."

Stout certainly put his grappling chops on display when he earned a unanimous decision over Fisher in the co-main draw of the event, which took place at Revel Atlantic City in New Jersey. The bout aired on FX.

Bad time to switch it up. lol He deserves some credit, though. Some of those takedowns were timed perfectly. I was impressed.

The best part for him was it put Spencer off his gameplan and score Stout some points in the judges and the publics eye. It was a nice addition to his already good standup

It is a good idea to be well rounded anyhow. If one area of your game is lacking....you don't stand a chance to make it too far. Now...if only my favorite fighter Patrick Cote would work on his ground game too.
