‘Gamer’ was coming into this fight on the back of a well-fought victory against Scott Holtzman at UFC Vegas 23. However, fans were more excited to see Jeremy Stephens and how he would perform. ‘Lil Heathen’ had last won a UFC fight back in 2018 against Josh Emmett and since then had suffered 4 losses and 1 NC.

Stephens could not break his losing streak in this fight as well. The fighter lost the fight after being submitted by Gamrot in the first round. Following this loss, Stephens took to Twitter to apologize to his fans for letting them down.

He wrote, “Feel I let a lot of people down tonight. Not my best performance, congrats to Gamrot and his team. Hope to get a quick turn around to show the world once again what I’m made of.”

Stephens clearly feels he has let down his fans and will look forward to turning it around. However, this won’t be easy as many people think, the UFC might just release Stephens following this loss. While there is no official news as yet, one will have to wait and see what the future holds for Stephens.

Drakkar Klose takes a dig at Jeremy Stephens following his loss at UFC Vegas 31

Following Stephen’s loss at UFC Vegas 31, many people criticized the fighter or his performance. Amongst them was Stephen’s former rival, Drakkar Klose.

Stephens and Klose would have faced each other earlier this year, however, Stephens pushed Klose at the weigh-ins and injured him. Klose seems to have not forgotten that and took a dig at ‘Lil Heathen.’

He wrote, “So “savage” the only fight @Lil HeathenMMA, “won” in 3 years was against a man with his hands behind his back at weigh-ins.”

Do you think Stephens will compete inside the Octagon again? And if he does, will he face Drakkar Klose? Let us know in the comments below.
