Yair Rodriguez vs Jeremy Stephens

Mexico City’s main event features Yair Rodriguez vs Jeremy Stephens. In his last outing Rodriguez landed a record setting last minute elbow KO of Korean Zombie. He was losing on the scorecards going into the decision but pulled off the miracle win with a ducking upper elbow. Rodriguez has shown twice now that he is able to go the distance in a five round fight, and against high caliber striking opponents like KZ. He has an aptitude for finding the finish in the second round as well, but Jeremy Stephens has proven hard to put away.

Stephens is no stranger to going the distance himself, currently tied at 2nd place for most decision bouts in UFC history. But unfortunately for Stephens most of the time the decisions go the other way. But Stephens could be considered a bit of a slow starter. Not necessarily a fighter who gets better as the fight goes on, but a fighter who retains power and consistency longer as his opponents begin to fade.

But it often leaves him playing a game of catch up. In his decision loss to Zabit Magomedsharipov, he won the third round on all score cards. Prior to that he had back to back second round KOs, so Stephens is the type of fighter to wait for his opponents to drop their pace and find his moments.
