Can you let us know the details of the contract with regards to his job security if he loses? I'd be very interested to check it out.

I'm genuinely happy for Stephens but what's the methodology here to being signed or cut??If you arent top 10, lose 3 in a row and miss a fight cos you got arrested you get re-signed;ButIf you are top 10, lost your last fight by dev to a top 5 fighter but won your previous fight and got FOTN you get cut? WTF??Fitch must be pulling his hair out...

I am terribly sorry to have upset your noble sensibilities Lahzerous.But I'm not wrong. Just like I wasn't wrong when I said Joe Rogan is biased and the commentary team of Anik/Florian is bad. Everyone already knows that.Are you upset with me or upset with reality?I like Jeremy Stephens and would be happy if he was guaranteed 4 more fights. Honestly. Just pointing out that this is almost certainly not the case.Unlike others on here, I do not shill for Zuffa. I don't like fighters - the guys who entertain us - being shafted just so billionaires can line their pockets some more. But hey, I guess that makes me negative in the eyes of the pathetic sycophants who inhabit this forum.

So far all 3 of your post you have made this morning in threads have been negative. Go back to lurking please.

4 fights if he wins, not if he loses.Remember how these Zuffa slave contracts work.You think if he gets knocked out 3 times and is 0-6 they are gonna give him a 7th crack just for shits and giggles?
