Jeremy "Lil' Heathen" Stephens tells MMA Junkie he wants a crack at Dennis Siver for his next fight: "I want to take out a top contender," Stephens said. "With Siver being an exciting fighter and doing pretty well, I think we'd put on a good one. I think he's perfect guy for me and a great scrap. It'd be an exciting matchup." "He's a banger," he said of Siver. "He likes to throw. He's on a win streak, and I'm not doing too bad myself. I'd like to take his ass out and show the world I'm ready to take out the competition and move to the top." "October would be the perfect time (with) the Diaz vs. St-Pierre card," he said. "I want on the main card. I want us to be the first fight and set the pace for the whole night "Dennis Siver, let's do it." Photo: Josh Hedges/Zuffa LLC for Getty Images
