Jeremy Stephens was looking to return to the win column in the main event of UFC Mexico City. There, he was taking on Yair Rodirguez in a pivotal featherweight bout.
Now, after the fight, Jeremy Stephens had a simple message for Rodriguez.
“Yair you think I’m faking bro? You’re the one who poked me in the eye,” Stephens said (h/t BJPENN.com). “Let’s run it back in four or five weeks, two weeks, whatever. I’ll be ready. Just a deep scratch, a deep bruise You’re the one who poked me. Let’s run it back motherf*cker. Let’s go.”
It seems likely the two will run it back sometime soon as it was a fight many fans were anticipating to see. When they will is unknown, but UFC Boston recently lost their co-main event so that could be a logical option.
For now, Jeremy Stephens’ eye needs to heal and once it is healed, as Stephens says, he wants to run it back with Yair Rodriguez.
