A featherweight division encounter will headline UFC On Fox 28, per the Orlando Sentinel, as #4 Josh Emmett is in action against #8 Jeremy Stephens.
Emmett (13-1-0) is coming off what is arguably the biggest win of his professional MMA career, defeating Ricardo Lamas by knockout at UFC On Fox 26. Emmett has only suffered a single defeat as a professional MMA fighter and that came to Desmond Green at UFC 210. Emmett is also a former West Coast Fighting Championships Featherweight Champion, defeating Brandon Ricetti at WCFC 12 to win the gold.
Stephens (27-14-0) competed less than a week ago in the main event of UFC Fight Night St. Louis, defeating Dooho Choi by second round TKO. Stephens hasn’t suffered a defeat in almost a year, with that last loss coming to Renato Carneiro at UFC On Fox 24. Stephens is just 1-2-0 in UFC main event fights, with those main event bout losses coming to Joe Lauzon and Cub Swanson.
UFC On Fox 28 takes place on Saturday, February 24 from the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida with Josh Emmett and Jeremy Stephens headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on Fox.
