The UFC comes to Orlando, Florida for UFC on Fox 28 and with it comes Josh Emmet riding the highlight reel KO of Ricardo Lamas in December. Jeremy Stephens faces Emmet in the main event and looks to silence the hype from that knock out Saturday night. Stephens has fought the top of the division and will likely be a true test for the Team Alpha Male featherweight moving forward.

Stephens has fought some of the most notable featherweights in his division and while he may not have won, a decision loss against a higher ranked opponent says something about his durability. He is also riding a two fight win-streak of his own with his most recent win coming last month against Doo Ho Choi. While Emmet’s finish of Lamas has been featured a lot to build up this card, Stephens holds more finishes. However, most of Stephens’ losses come by decision and that has been how Emmet has been collecting his wins. It is an interesting match-up and likely will keep the winner in a contender conversation in 2018.
