After annihilating Downey Downes, UFC lightweight - Jeremy Stephens - wants the former Pride Champion - Takanori Gomi - in a match.

Riding two wins in a row, UFC lightweight – Jeremy Stephens – has proven he is one of the most dangerous fighters in the world. Demonstrating technique and deadly power had made him a force to be afraid of, as evident in his reel knockout on Rafael Dos Anjos and his power punches on Marcus Davis at UFC 125.

Jeremy Stephens got his chance to showcase his skills at the TUF 13 finale last weekend, defeating Danny Downes. He recognizes Danny Downes for being a tough competitor, but he’s still trying to analyze how that didn’t end the fight. Danny Downes, on the other hand, did lastfor 15 minutes but not without nearly losing a part of his body and blood drifting on his face.

After being defeated by Clay Guida, Anthony "Showtime" Pettis still hopes that he would get his title shot.

Despite his loss at The Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale last Saturday, Anthony “Showtime” Pettis refuses to down himself and lament the loss of the promised title shot.

Clay ” The Carpenter” Guida, with a career status of 29-11, shut down Anthony Pettis’ showtime to championship with a great performance in Las Vegas. Even if the latter is dangerous to anyone that stand on his way to the title shot, Clay Guida, his solid submission game, and his trainer Greg Jackson, did a great job by exposing Anthony Pettis’ weakness — wrestling defense.

Anthony Pettis was asked if he regrets fighting Clay Guida than waiting for his title shot and he answered “not at all, I feel I had some holes in my game, and Clay Guida and Greg Jackson did a great job of having a good game plan. I’ve got to go back to the drawing board and get better there.”
