Jeremy “Lil Heathen” Stephens continued his climb up the featherweight ladder on Saturday night against Josh Emmett at UFC on Fox at Amway Center in Orlando, Florida, USA. Stephens managed to recover from a counter right hand that floored him in the first round. Lil Heathen connected with a slick counter left hand that dropped Emmett early in the second round. The controversy started when Stephens followed up with some crushing elbows on the ground that landed on the back of Emmet’s head. Stephens threw an illegal knee that again appeared to land on the back of the head of his grounded opponent. It took two more elbows directly to the chin to shut Emmet’s lights completely out.

The debate started immediately after the bout with former UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz engaging in an intense debate with Daniel Cormier regarding the legality of the knee. Cruz trains with Jeremy Stephens at Alliance MMA. The controversy from this fight could possibly reignite the rivalry between the featherweight’s gyms. Alliance MMA and Team Alpha Male have been embroiled in a long-running feud that was spearheaded by bouts between Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber.
