Several other intriguing matchups are also set to transpire on the card. So, without further ado, here are the complete predictions & preview for UFC on FOX: Emmett vs Stephens—

However, Emmett isn’t as accurate or consistent in delivering such stoppages as Stephens. The latter is one of the best strikers in the UFC Featherweight division and can stop any man in his tracks with his signature looping right hand.

Expect this bout to start slow, with Stephens tagging his foe from Round 2 onwards. Stephens will catch Emmett at long range, and proceed to swarm him for the TKO finish.

Prediction: Jeremy Stephens def. Josh Emmett via TKO
