On the UFC on FOX 28 main event, the Orlando crowd was treated to top -10 featherweight action which saw the #8 Jeremy Stephens knocking out the #4 Josh Emmett in the 2nd round. Stephens overcame being dropped in the first round to drop Emmett in the 2nd with a left hook, and uncorked a whirlwind of violence resulting in a knockout from a set of ground elbows. It should be noted that there were a couple of questionable strikes that were landed by Stephens in the flurry, including elbows to the back of the head and a knee to a downed opponent.
