A rivalry begun over six years ago will be reignited this June, as "Showdown" Joe Ferraro at Sportstnet.ca reports that lightweights Spencer Fisher and Sam Stout will square off for the third time at UFC on FX 4 this June.

The first meeting between the two came in Stout's UFC debut at UFC 58. Fisher had won two previous appearances inside the Octagon heading into that March 2006 fight, but dropped a unanimous decision to stout in a fight that made the UFC's 2010 list of the top 100 fights in company history.

Their rematch would come 15 months later in the main event of UFC Fight Night 10 on Spike TV. In another good, entertaining 15 minute fight, Fisher had his hand raised.

In the five years that have passed since that second meeting, Stout has posted a 5-4 mark in nine UFC fights, adding one other victory outside of the organization in 2007. Fisher has been slightly more active, but posted a similar mark at 7-6 in that time.

They enter this bout in different spots, however, with Stout coming off a winning streak-snapping decision loss to Thiago Tavares, while Fisher has won just one fight in his last five, the most recent loss having also come against Tavares.

UFC on FX 4 takes place on June 22 from Atlantic City, New Jersey, headlined by the lightweight bout between Gray Maynard and Clay Guida.

Penick's Analysis: Their first two fights were really good, but took place in a very different time for both fighters. Five years is a long time, and seeing where they are now as opposed to their first meeting shows a stark contrast in both expectations and results. When their first bout took place, Fisher was a 17-1 fighter with two UFC wins under his belt, and Stout was 8-1-1 coming into his UFC debut. Now, Fisher is hoping to avoid a UFC release after 17 fights in the organization. He's 9-7 through 16 bouts in the Octagon, but losing a fifth bout in six fights may bring an end to his tenure in the organization. Stout's got more leeway, but he doesn't have anywhere else to go in the division but sideways with the mark he's posted in the UFC. Still, this is a fun fight regardless of the lack of stakes.
