Sam Stout disappointed in Makdessi ‘running away’
Stout, who lost a unanimous decision to Makdessi on the preliminary portion of the card, feels Makdessi didn’t come to fight at the Bell Centre, but rather to fight cautiously.
“He wasn’t fighting,” Stout told MMAmania.com moments after his defeat. “He was running the whole time. I wanted to fight, I came to fight and I didn’t get the fight I wanted.”
“I usually like to come out and put on an exciting fight and it takes two guys to do that, to do those kinds of fights,” Stout explained. “And you know John, he ran, he kept on moving the whole time and I was expecting him to fight me a little more.”
“He never really hurt me, obviously I have some superficial damage and my lips are little swollen but yeah, it’s just a disappointing experience, it’s not the end of the world, you know, I’ll fight another day but, yeah, I guess that’s the best word to describe how I feel — disappointed.”
