Jeremy Stephens is known as one of the hardest hitters in the UFC's lower weight categories and on June 28 he is to fight Cub Swanson.

However, his opponent is also a powerful hitter and that’s why this match could provide a lot of action to the MMA fans.

"He shakes up his opponents and ends the fight with a stoppage, but when I hit my opponents don’t move nor get up. Their coaches have to carry them away and they always wonder what happened. When Swanson hits, people sway and they are stunned, but they still see the light unlike when I hit and when they completely black out”, said Stephens.

"When I hit the opponent it’s not just a slight black out after which they come back and then I punch them a couple of more times and the referee stops the match and then they say they can fight on. When I hit they wonder what happened. When I hit them their coaches have to wake them up and that’s the difference between mine and his punch.”

This is an important fight for both fighters since the winner should get a chance to fight in the feather weight title match against the winner of the Jose Aldo vs. Chad Mendes match that is to take place August 2 at UFC 176.
