Jeremy Stephens is coming off of a victory over former Strikeforce Lightweight Champion Gilbert Melendez at UFC 215.
The featherweight has been looking for his next opponent, which is why he decided to call out Chan Sung Jung via Twitter:
Hearing Jose doesn't want none..?--What's up w/ Korean Zombie? I'd like to fight him too. Any translators that can get him to step up?— Jeremy Stephens (@LiLHeathenMMA) September 18, 2017
Jung, who hasn’t competed since defeating Dennis Bermudez in the main event of UFC Fight Night 104, had the following response to Stephens on Twitter:
For those who are unaware of the reference made by Jung, the featherweight is referencing the UFC Summer Kickoff Press Conference. At that press conference, the UFC Lightweight Champion delivered an epic response when Stephens hinted at the two fighting down the line.
A knee injury is going to keep the “Korean Zombie” out of action for the rest of the year, so if Stephens wants to fight him, then the clash would have to happen in 2018.
