Prediction: wrong Choi   wrong Decision  

Excellent fight for the St Louis card.  Both guys are exciting to watch strikers and rarely fail to put on a fight of the night worthy performance every time they enter the cage.  Going to be hard for me to root against either guy in this one.

31 years old and having your 41st fight... Tough for 145 lbs fighters past 30, IMO.

Prediction: correct Stephens   wrong Decision  

Stephens came close to finishing Edgar and had a great performance against Melendez. I think if Stephens can establish his low kick early it can take a lot of the steam off Choi's shots. Both guys have potential to knock the other out with one shot, but I see this one going to a competitive decision. I'm flip flopping on this but leaning more to Stephens at the moment. He just has much more experience and is showing lately that he can put together and follow a good game plan rather than just come out looking for one big shot every time.

I've picked Stephens. Doo is looking like a killer but I think Stephens has the power to keep him honest, and he's still got a chin on him.

All gunslinger's chins go without warning at some point, I think Stephens is the better fighter but I'm just gambling that Choi is the man to hit Stephens off switch. Great fight, I hope it goes 5 crazy rounds though.

I just hope Doo makes a serious name for himself before his mandatory military service. It’s so crazy, I spoke to a Korean cab driver who said during the service they don’t even get weekends...fuc that noise

choi needs a ko to win and stephens is notoriously difficult to finish. 3 rounds, maybe choi decision, but 5 i think stephens can take over.

Prediction: correct Stephens   wrong Decision  

Two knockout artists make this fight hard to predict. Jeremy Stephens lands his best shots by baiting his opponent's strike and landing a counter afterwards. Choi's come from intercepting his opponents mid-strike, a testament to his excellent speed and reaction-time. The latter will enable Choi to win the first few rounds. However, Stephens's leg kicks will pay dividends against a wide-stanced Choi, as long as his head is tucked in and off the center-line to prevent being blasted by a counter-straight-right. Also, Jeremy is proven capable of fighting a minimum 3 rounds in the same pace, whereas we have not seen that from Choi just yet.

Picking Choi cause fanboy and he can sleep anyone, but in reality I think Stephens "mans" him. Gonna be a super fun fight though.
