Jeremy Stephens knows what his game plan is going into his fight with Club Swanson this Saturday night and that is to knock him out.
Jeremy Stephens (23-9) Has 15 knockouts, 3 submissions and 5 decision victories in his MMA career.
“I can strike with him, I can ground-and-pound him, I can out-wrestle him,” said Stephens, during a recent interview with FOX Sports, “I can get back up to my feet and I can submit him. I know I can beat this guy.”
The longtime fighter has been with the UFC since May / 26 / 2007. In his last seven fights he is 4-3.
“When I hit people, it’s not a flash knockout where they get back up,” Stephens said. “I hit people where it’s like, ‘What happened?’ The coaches have to wake them up.
In his last five he is 3-2, in his last three fights he is 3-0 coming into this fight with Club Swanson.
“That’s just a difference in power.”
