 in MMA" - Direct quote from Bloody Elbow's Mike Fagan.

Wow, just wow. As a fan of Stephens that's a bullshit comment.

Here's the link:

It's true, he'll never make it to the UFC or become a popular fighter that everyone loves to watch.

I would say he's already accomplished a hell of a lot fighting many times in the biggest MMA organization.

Compared to who? He is ahead of 98%+ ppl on the planet just by becoming a pro athlete in a top venue.

I think Jeremy Stephans has already amounted to somebody in MMA! I like respect his abilities and personaly like watching the guy fight.

What a douchebag writer.  Ill bet Mike Fagan will never amount to anything in MMA. Except a bitter second rate MMA journalist wannabe!

Joe O'Brien - Anything other than interviews by mma "journalists" is absolute rubbish and not worth shit.

 don't even care about the context - that's a low-ass thing to say

specially about a fighter that always brings it...

He fits the mold of Lytle, Davis, Spencer, Bonnar, etc in that their records may not be amazing in the UFC, but their level of entertainment makes them a valued employee.

he's an exciting fighter who has wins over cole miller, sam stout and dos anjos. to say he'll never amount to anything is pretty stupid, he's still young and from his recent fights it's obvious he's improving.

While I certainly don't agree with Fagan's comment, you should at least post the entire thing rather than cherry picking the juicy part.

"Why not go out and put on a [expletive] war and get knocked out?"
- Jeremy Stephens, upset with the hit-and-run strategy implemented by Melvin Guillard at UFC 119. And now we know why Jeremy Stephens will never amount to anything in MMA. (Bloody Elbow)

It makes a little more sense in that context.  He's criticizing Stephens disdain for Guillard doing something other than playing Rock 'em Sock 'em Robots.  He could have gone about it in a less abrasive manner, but he is right that Jeremy is unlikely to advance beyond gatekeeper status with that kind of attitude.
