This weekend's card in St. Louis is surprisingly good. Maybe even a better card top to bottom than the most recent PPV. Either way, the card wraps up in a slobber-knocker of Doo Ho Choi and Jeremy Stephens.
Jeremey Stephens is the "real hardest hitter of 145." While I disagreed with that claim on the podcast, there is some truth behind that statement. When he knocks guys out, they tend to be out COLD. Just look at his highlights. The man hits hard and likes to let people know. This fight also plays into his biggest weapon, as Choi likes to stand. Stephen's strategy is simple: stop "The Korean Superboy."
Doo Ho Choi is tough. I know that's a loaded word because the only time you hear it is when you're getting the snot kicked out of you, but it's true. His last fight was that WAR he had with Cub Swanson in what is an all-time great fight. Also, he's exciting to watch, racking up two performance of the night bonuses before that Swanson fight. Look for him to be explosive and also look for the finish against a Stephens with much more octagon experience and who's last KO loss came in 2012. Tough test for the prospect.
Whatever you do this Sunday night, make sure you watch this one because it could be another war, and if it is, you'll be sorry you missed it.
