Jeremy Stephens is still in jail and the UFC on FX 5 "Prelims" on FUEL TV are over. UFC President Dana White stated that he's been working all day on getting "Lil' Heathen" sprung and that he would still make it in time to the Target Center to fight Yves Edwards before the FX portion of the card concluded. T-minus two hours. Tick-tock, tick-tock. For more on the Stephens arrest click here.
Something HAS to be done about Kim Winslow. I mean from the Gian Villante stoppage to the King Mo stoppage to the Jan Finney beating Cyborg gave her all the way to Jeremy Stephens KO'ing Marcus Davis. Here is another one...Only this time, it's wait for it...an early submission stoppage. How many big fights is she going to get before she is reprimanded? We all remember Dakota Cochrane..right? Upset Jamie Varner at Titan FC. Well here is the fight with him and my good friend Corey Simpson attached. You can skip forward to the 9 minute mark if you’d like..The “stoppage” occurs 9:09-9:10 into the video. She stopped it due to a RNC, although you can clearly see there was NO tap, he WAS defending himself and he didn’t even have the choke completely applied. Take a look for yourself I believe this is one Kim Winslow's worst calls and bad thing is it has got swept under the radar.
Jeremy Stephens posted some pics from atop the Houston Hilton, where he is staying prior to his fight against Anthony Pettis at UFC 136 on Saturday. Twitter
Jeremy Stephens Vlog - 3 days until Anthony Pettis at UFC 136 (via LilHeathenMMA) We see Jeremy Stephens in a coffee shop and then he's at Radio Shack because he forgot his phone in San Diego and his buddy's phone then broke. They need a phone. I would be completely lost without my phone. Stephens also goes through open workouts and hits the wet sauna. He has one more training session left and then needs to cut weight. We see Stephens giving a phone interview and then cruising in his minivan to Whole Foods where he peruses the soup display (Stay away from it! It's salty! Weight cut!). He ends up eating vegetables while his friends taunt him with rotisserie chicken.
