Sweet fight! I'll be backing Stout, although I do like Makdessi.

I see Stout's new and improved takedowns making an appearance again in this one. If they decide to stand and trade this one could be a barnburner though.

I think they stay on the feet for 15. Well, unless Stout gets in some trouble.

These two are both excellent strikers but I see Stout having an advantage in the wrestling/grappling area

Stout fights are hard to pick these days, but I'm probably gonna have to go with him on this one.

I could definitely see him attempting some late takedowns to steal the round. I think he'll be able to outstrike Makdessi but he better be careful, Makedessi can turn your lights out mighty quick.
