UFC on FOX 28: Jeremy Stephens is up to “Fight Them All”, Heading Into Pivotal Josh Emmett Bout
By FCF Staff
Although Jeremy Stephens could move into the title shot mix tonight, if he defeats Josh Emmett, “Lil Heathen” says he has no one in mind for his next opponent.
Stephens will take on the featherweight contender in the headliner of UFC on FOX 28, which will go down in Orlando. Heading into the contest, Stephens is ranked #8 in the division, and Emmett is #5.
In a recent story from UFC.com, Stephens was asked if there’s anyone in particular, that he’s looking to fight, having fought now for over ten years. The dangerous fighter had this to say:
“No. I just get these opportunities and I take them as they come. I don’t back out of fights against anybody, and there are still some people out there that I could fight, but my only focus right now is beating the crap out of Josh Emmett next week.”
“I’d love to fight them all,” Stephens said after reportedly laughing. “You name ‘em, I’ll take ‘em on. I feel like a hitman. Just call me and I’ll take ‘em out.”
Stephens is coming off a second round, stoppage win over Doo Ho Choi in January. Emmett, meanwhile, knocked out long time contender Ricardo Lamas in his last bout.
