Jeremy “Lil’ Heathen” Stephens 26-14 MMA (13-13 UFC) is set to take on Doo Ho “The Korean Superboy” Choi 14-2 MMA (3-1 UFC) at UFC Fight Night St. Louis on January 14, 2018.
Stephens has had a turbulent UFC career. Having never put together more than three victories in a row inside the octagon, he has a very tough task ahead of him in Choi. Stephens is coming off his three round unanimous decision win over Gilbert “El Nino” Melendez 22-7 MMA (1-5 UFC) at UFC 215 in September.
Choi hasn’t competed since his second career loss, which snapped a 12 fight winning streak, to Cub Swanson at UFC 206 last December. 11 of his 14 victories come by KO/TKO stoppages with 7 in the first round and a lone first round submission win in his MMA debut.
Below is the tweet confirming the bout.
