Jeremy Stephens is saying to his peers what many people are thinking, “Just shut up and fight”. It’s a simple concept, really. Instead of sitting on the sidelines and complaining about what you are NOT getting, go out there and take it.
Exactly one month ago, Stephens beat Doo Ho Choi and next week he’ll do a quick back-to-back by fighting Josh Emmett. Stephens isn’t looking for money fights; Rather, he’s being proactive and getting out there putting on a show. That is how the money will roll in. It won’t come by idly sitting at home and tweeting about fighting someone in another weight class because you want that one big payday.
Hopefully, other fighters take their cue from Stephens and follow suit.
