#Main Card (FOX Sports 1)
#1 Jeremy Stephens vs. Doo Ho Choi
Jeremy Stephens possesses God-given KO power as does his foe Doo Ho Choi.
While Stephens possesses the experience advantage and has a more proven record today, Choi is incredibly disciplined and seems to have been honing his cardio after a close loss to Cub Swanson. Choi could take this fight if he stays on his bike and counters from long range.
Nevertheless, Stephens catching Choi in the early going is a very realistic possibility, as the former also has decent grappling skills, enough to show Choi the takedown threat, before coming up top with the overhand right. Look for the veteran to down Choi with a huge right hand.
Prediction: Jeremy Stephens def. Doo Ho Choi via TKO
