Not a bad matchup

at the moment I have Stephens UD. That could easily change though

Definitely leaning toward Stephens, but he may be able to Sam Stout poor Yves. If it goes to the ground for some freak reason, perhaps a carefully placed , Stephens should have a distinct advantage on the ground. Even on the bottom with those razor elbows with which he instantly cut open Cerrone from the bottom.

This is a fun match up. Good one to watch two guys stand and through some strikes. I think Stephens will land a KO bomb.
