Brookins can for sure get it down and get the sub. He has some nice throws and trips and has to avoid some bombs to get the clinch. Tough fight but not impossible.

Damn. I don't see this going well for Brookins. It'd be crazy if he actually asked for this himself.

Good tough first fight for Brookins. I hope he has enough tools on his belt to win but I suspect he may fall short in the stand up aspect of the fight. I wonder who he pissed off to get this match up.

Brookins will be going to sleep. He lets himself get hit way too much and a heavy hitter like Stephens will knock him out cold.

Not sure Brookins can finish Jeremy standing. Both good fighters but I think Stevens could take this one. Brookins has crazy heart but Jeremy knows this is his job on the line. Very tough fight for both guys.

I can't decide who I want to see lose more. Both are annoying.
