Stout doubtful Tavares will trade punches

by Steven Marrocco | source: mmajunkie.com
 

"I picture him trying to take me down, to be honest," he said. "I think he's going to be coming forward and shooting and shooting, and I've been preparing a lot for that. Obviously, I've been doing tons of striking as well – that's my forte. But I've been preparing to keep a really fast pace.

"I don't think there's any big secret as to what his game plan is going to be. I doubt he's going to stand with me and do a three-round standup war. I think that would end badly for him."

Stout knocked Yves Edwards out cold with an overhand right in his most recent appearance at UFC 131. Tompkins saw the opening and called for the punch, and boom, the fight was over in the first round.

Tavares has twice fallen prey to big punches in his time with the UFC; first, against Matt Wiman at UFC 85 and most recently against Shane Roller at UFC on Versus 3. Both encounters turned the lights out.

I think that Sam will hit him so many times it will sound like a 6th grade tap dance recital.
