So apparently there's nothing to Stout-Noons at 170. They met, realized they were at same weight, said we should fight at 170, UFC said yes.
on Monday
I don't know the exact reason for the switch to 170 for Stout-Noons. Word from UFC is both fighters requested it, which, yes, is kind of odd
on Monday
The Sam Stout-KJ Noons fight on Wednesday's UFC show will be contested at welterweight instead of original 155 designation.

For the first 9 years and 37 fights of his career, Big Nog was never stopped. He's now been finished in each of his last 5 losses.

Bedford hasn't fought in a year so I can understand his frustration, but rein it in a little.
on Friday
Bedford: "Let's fight right now! ... You were knocked out!" #UFC
on Friday
Oh, good, they declare Bedford-Yahya a no contest. That is totally fair & just. #UFC

It was a headbutt that knocked out Rani Yahya, but fight will likely be ruled a TKO. #UFC
