UFC Road to the Octagon: Emmett vs Stephens


The full episode of UFC Road to the Octagon follows the lives and training camps of six fighters featured on the main card.

UFC on Fox 28 will be headlined by a featherweight bout between Josh Emmett and Jeremy “Lil Heathen” Stephens on Saturday 24th February at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida, United States.

Josh Emmett (13-1) is coming off a stunning first-round knockout of former featherweight title challenger Richardo Lamas in December. Emmett is part of the renowned Team Alpha Male alongside UFC Hall of Famer Urijah Faber and former UFC bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt.

Jeremy Stephens (27-14) has earned himself back-to-back Fight of the Night awards with his last two wins in the octagon. Stephens spoiled the featherweight debut of former Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez at UFC 215 in September. Lil Heathen followed up with another Fight of the Night performance against Doo Ho Choi in January. The Alliance MMA representative stopped Choi with vicious ground and pound in the second round.
