Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) recently released the official poster for its upcoming UFC on FOX 28 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, which takes place inside Amway Center in Orlando, Florida, on Sat., Feb. 24, 2018.
“Emmett vs. Stephens” is exactly what it sounds like: featherweights Josh Emmett and Jeremy Stephens headlining the FOX card in a five-round scrap that could have serious implications in the 145-pound title chase.
Elsewhere on the “Sunshine State” fight card, strawweight contenders Tecia Torres and Jessica Andrade collide in the 115-pound co-main event, while Ilir Latifi and Ovince Saint Preux hook ‘em up for light heavyweight bragging rights.
While no doubt the UFC on FOX 28 fight card will produce some fun fights, the decision to have “Emmett vs. Stephens” as the main attraction is a curious one — especially when you consider this — considering how poorly the ratings have been on FOX, thanks largely in part to a lack of marquee names.
