The UFC lightweight on Thursday took to Twitter for his next career request: a meeting with Marcus Davis (17-7 MMA, 9-5 UFC), who on Tuesday told MMAjunkie.com that he's moving down from welterweight to Stephens' territory.
"Please give me that fight!" Stephens (17-6 MMA, 5-5 UFC) wrote.
Stephens and Guillard brought their most recent octagon appearance to fruition when they publicly requested a meeting.
The two lightweight sluggers were subsequently booked for a meeting at UFC 119. While most of the MMA community expected the fight to be a barnburner, the matchup failed to deliver fireworks. In the end, it was Guillard who had his hand raised by way of split decision.
Stephens blamed the lack of action on the gameplan of "The Young Assassin," an opinion he made clear in Thursday's request.
"No disrespect, but I don't think Marcus will run like my last opponent," he said.
The loss snapped a two-fight win streak for Stephens, who now trains at Victory MMA in San Diego.
