Sam Stout and
his family are grieving following the death of his month-old
daughter, Sydney Love Stout.
The UFC veteran revealed on Instagram last week that his daughter
passed away in her sleep. A GoFundMe
page has been set up in memory of Sydney to help the Stouts with
day-to-day costs, counseling and other expenses. The initial goal
was $5,000, but as of Tuesday night, more than $28,000 had been
raised. Sam and his wife, Jessie Stout, have a 6-year-old daughter
“Most of you already know that we lost Sydney Love Stout in her
sleep the night before last. We tried to save her but it was too
late,” Stout wrote. “The last month with her was the best month of
my life, and this is now the worst time of my life… it still
doesn’t feel real.
“Jessie and I haven’t let go of each other since yesterday and we
will continue to hold on to one other for the rest of our lives. We
will be eternally scared from this. We appreciate all the love we
have already received from the people around us. We love you Sydney
Now 36 years old, Stout competed 20 times for the UFC. He
retired from the sport shortly after a loss to Frankie
Perez at UFC Fight Night 74 on Aug. 23, 2015. The Canadian
lightweight finished his career with a 20-12-1 record.
