Little surprised with the match making but someone is definitely getting KO'ed. Likely Martins.

Martins is fast and hits hard and Stephens is definitely hittable and slower than him.

Martins does leave his chin in the air though.

Well Martins is on a good streak and Stephens lost his last one plus both throw bombs, fun fight.

Isn't Stephens fighting at 145 these days ? Martin is 55'er, no ?

It's a good fight between two relatively entertaining fighters. As much as I dislike his personality, I gotta like Stephens' chances in this one to either exploit the suspect striking defense Martins showed against Larsen or to win via improved wrestling and gnp as wrestling and game off his back aren't Martins' strength. He's an offensive striker with some dominant position jits. That makes him have potential to pull some upsets, but overall be a win some lose some type fighter.

At first I was thinking this was Adriano Martins and I was surprised at everyone picking Stephens to smash him.

That being said, it's Lucas Martins and now I think Stephens is going to smash him

Lucas Martins could also get a big KO here... both big hitters, strong 145ers.

Stephens of course is the rightful favourite.

His last fight was actually at 145 and before that he fought at 135 even. IIRC he only fought at 155 against Barboza and then dropped

I think he thought of Adriano Martins.
