"He's coming off a loss. I'm coming off a loss. Both guys are hungry. We know we have to put on a show. This is a hyped up fight. I think he may be a little cocky and try to stand with me for a little bit. But again, I think he'll go for a takedown attempt. I'm well prepared for that. I'm going to defend the takedown, keep it standing and give the fans what they want in a knockout. ... When I come forward, we're definitely going to collide. It's going to be who's coming forward and who has the lack of respect for each other's power. I can tell you right now, I don't really care for his kicks. I couldn't care less about his kicks. I couldn't care less about his punching power. And I'm going to break him."

-- In the most shocking news update (via USA Today) you will see today, Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Lightweight contender Jeremy Stephens wants to knock out his next opponent, Donald Cerrone. The two will collide on the main televised card of the upcoming UFC on FUEL TV 3: "Korean Zombie vs. Poirier" event scheduled for Tues., May 15, 2012, from the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia. As Stephens stated himself, both men are eager to get back in the win column after disappointing losses their last times out to the cage. Combine that with the match-up and the abilities of both men and all the ingredients are there for a good old fashioned slobberknocker. Who 'ya got in this one, Maniacs?
