Rony Jason vs. Jeremy Stephens
Featherweights head to the Octagon for our next contest, as Rony Jason (13-3) seeks his ninth straight victory – and fourth consecutive with the UFC – against veteran Jeremy Stephens (21-9), who debuted in the division this past May with a win over Estevan Payan.
Controlling the action will be referee Kevin MacDonald, who gave us a very nice strut to the center of the Octagon after he was announced. Stephens has fought 17 times inside the Octagon and is just 27 years old. That is just insane.
Round 1: Stephens quickly takes the center of the Octagon, and Jason comes flying at him with a knee. Big front kicks from the Brazilian, as both men seem very relaxed. Big kick from Stephens and Jason is out cold up against the fence. Holy cow, the arena is completely silent and stunned. Jason ducked at the same time that Stephens threw the kick and he remains out cold. Going to be difficult to top that for “Knockout of the Night.”
