Main Takeaways:

Stephens showed up against Emmett! In a fight where many couldn’t decide who they wanted to win, the main event did not disappoint. Both men had won at least three of their last five fights. With Stephens obtaining the victory and now winning four of his last six fights, he will for sure move up in the featherweight rankings.

 

The main card started with Mike Perry losing via submission to Max Griffin. From a personal standpoint this bummed me out because prior to this fight a mean man by the name of Darren Till called out Mike Perry on social media and said that he wanted to fight Perry if he pulled off the win against Griffin, which didn’t happen. I personally believe that Darren Till is one of the best if not the best up-and-comer in the entire UFC right now.  He has struggled to get a fight booked lately but I firmly believe he can go up against Welterweight and give them a run for their money.
