“On our feet it’s the same fight. Stephens is a brawler but, once it hits the ground, it’s going to be an entirely different fight. Hermes is a black belt in Jiu-Jitsu; Stephens isn’t as good as him on the ground. He’s going to come out and try to knock me out. He doesn’t want to fight me on the ground. Hermes was a bigger fight but this is a little easier fight for me. I was training since early December for Franca. Someday we will fight, especially after what he’s been saying about me being lucky I’m not fighting him. The change of opponents could have been a problem if the replacement had an entirely different style. Stephens may have quicker hands and he’s tough, but it’ll be a similar fight. It’s going to be a great fight and there’s nothing like headlining a UFC show.”

Don't get too cocky, J-Lau...

you haven't noticed how cocky he is yet, all the guy does is throw out excuses when he loses. manny did no damage my gigantic fat lip was from a head but, florian hit me in the back of the head. i don't think he loses this one but i hope he does.

I guess that conversation between joe and franca was real.

Joe should win this fight because of his ground game. He's not cocky, hes confident.

Eh...saying a fight is 'easier' is cockiness, if you ask me. In pro sports, that's bulletin board material.

Im just trying to defend joe because he's one of my fav's. Atleast we know one thing we always get from joe is he speaks his mind.

I like him as a fighter, too. And I hate it when fighters I like get overly cocky.

I'm not too big of a J-Lau fan either. But, I do think he takes this one. I hope Jeremy knocks his head off. But I got J-Lau 1st round submission win.

I guess I don't really see it as being cocky because if I asked almost anyone:
Which fight would be easier?
Franca
or
Stephens
90% of people wouls say Stephens. So like I said IMO it's just the way he's sees it and so thats what he said.

From an OUTSIDER'S perspective, yes, it's probably an easier fight. But for a fighter to come out and say that makes it seem as though he's underestimating his opponent. And we all know what that can lead to in this sport. Or hell...pretty much any sport.
