As he heads into his fight against former WEC champion Anthony Pettis at UFC 136, Jeremy Stephens isn't lacking confidence.

This fight is matchmaking gold. I can't wait to see it. I've got Pettis by submission about half way through the 2nd.

Pettis' ground game is his way to victory. But if he stands and trades with Stephens i think he's in for a world of hurt. Dude has a falcon uppercut from hell.

I agree Pookie. Stephens is grimey with it.

Why the animosity from Stephens? Is there beef I don't know about? Anyway, if it plays out on the feet, Stephens has all the tools to bloody Pettis up. On the ground is a different story. I see Pettis sinking in a guillotine or even a triangle. But Stephens is one bad SOB. Tough fight to pick a clear cut winner. It all depends on where the fight takes place. Gonna be one of those fights I'm gonna have to get the ECP's opinion on

I'm saying triangle. Pettis has a nasty guard and Stephens' worst area is his ground game. I think this fight reaches the ground early in the 2nd and Pettis works for the triangle for a couple minutes until he gets the tap.

I think "Wants to" are the key words in this statement. Pettis is too well-rounded for Stephens to "expose." Unless Jeremy lands a big uppercut, I see Pettis working him.

Pettis is one of those fighters who look like he is going to do something amazing but instead all we see is hot air.

He will stand like he is going to do a triple toe - double lutz crescent kick but when the heat is on, he can barely squeeze out a round house.

Stephens is a gamer, but personally i think Pettis is better everywhere. I think he can outstrike Jeremy as well as outclass him on the mat. Apparently you're only as good as your last fight because people seem to have forgotten some nice performances from Anthony before he got completely controlled by a good wrestler in clay guida.

Stephens dirty boxing in tight is pretty sick. I agree at long range and on the mat though.
