Vanu: Scottrade Center — St. Louis, Missouri
This weekend, a pair of UFC featherweight contenders will compete in the main event of a rare Sunday offering from the company. Jeremy Stephens (26-14), the No. 9-ranked fighter in the division, will look to earn his second win in the last four months when he takes on the “Korean Superboy,” and the 13th-ranked featherweight in UFC, Doohoo Choi (14-2).
Following two consecutive losses, Stephens began his climb back up the featherweight ranks with a unanimous decision win over Gilbert Melendez in September at UFC 215. The win by Stephens earned the competitors a Fight of the Night bonus. Meanwhile, Choi will be stepping into the Octagon for the first time since December 2016 when he suffered a unanimous decision loss to Cub Swanson at UFC 206. That battle also earned Fight of the Night honors, and was considered by many to be the best fight of 2016.
This Sunday’s UFC St. Louis card will also feature the flyweight debut of the ever-popular Paige Van Zant (7-3).a card that also took place on Fox — but she’ll look to make an immediate mark on the 125-pound division when she takes on 10th-ranked contender, Jessica-Rose Clark (8-4,1 NC).
