Jeremy Stephens Says Fight with Yves Edwards was “Destined to Be” (Video)


Jeremy Stephens UFC 91It’s been a long road traveled between Minnesota and Seattle from when Jeremy Stephens was first scheduled to face Yves Edwards, and where the fight will finally take place at.

Stephens dealt with an arrest warrant, jail time, and a legal battle to get free to return home, but now he has the chance to earn a paycheck as he steps in on short notice to face Edwards at UFC on Fox 5.

“It’s just destined to be,” said Stephens. “Me and Yves are going to throw down. I’m in great shape, my weight is still good, I’m really well prepared and I’m going in there to bring it.”

Check out the video below to hear Stephens talk about the upcoming fight with Yves Edwards as well as a visit to the Wounded Warriors:
