UFC promises Stephens to fight for the title if he wins
Jeremy Stephens and Cub Swanson are to headline the UFC Fight Night that is to take place this weekend in San Antonio. UFC President Dana White stated that the winner is to get a chance to fight for the featherweight category title.
Since dropping to the featherweight category Stephens (23-9 MMA, 10-8 UFC) scored three victories and he hopes to continue in the same manner against Swanson. The UFC management already told him he is to get a chance to fight for the title in case he wins, but he is also aware of the fact that nothing is 100% sure in the UFC. That is why he does not want to score just another victory, but he wants to score it in an impressive way that will leave no one indifferent.
They told me that the winner will get a chance to fight for the title. But you never know. Everything depends on the presentation during the bout. Nevertheless, considering the opponent, I think that this fight will not disappoint anyone," said Stephens.
