Jeremy Stephens and Josh Emmett will highlight UFC on FOX 28
An interesting main event was announced for UFC on FOX 28 by the UFC. Jeremy Stephens, who is coming off of an amazing KO victory over Doo Ho Choi last weekend will meet Josh Emmett. The fight is between two highly ranked Featherweight contenders. Josh Emmett is currently ranked #4 and Jeremy Stephens is ranked #8.
Jeremy Stephens (27-14) has knockout power in both hands and knocked out Doo Ho Choi just a week ago in St Louis. He has been a work in progress as a fighter, but has seemingly found his groove and is an absolute killer in the Octagon. If you stand with him, you’re playing a very dangerous game. Even if you get the better of him for a bit, he just has to land one shot and that’s a wrap.
Josh Emmett (13-1) shot up the rankings after stopping Ricardo Lamas in the first round of their December contest at UFC on FOX 26. The Team Alpha Male product is a talented fighter who will stand and trade. A victory for him over Stephens would almost certainly land him a title elimination fight with one of the top 2-3 guys.
UFC on FOX 28 takes place in Orlando, FL on February 24th.
