Not only did Jeremy Stephens leave Patriot Center in Virginia with another loss on his résumé, but it appears the lightweight will also be taking a busted face back home with him to San Diego, California.
“Broken orbital bone won’t keep me down for too long. Still good times with friends,” Stephens tweeted accompanied with the above pic on Wednesday afternoon.
Most were expecting to witness a back-and-forth slugfest between Stephens and Donald Cerrone. Unfortunately for fight fanatics, “Cowboy” was the only one who showed up to the shootout.
Cerrone cruised to a lopsided (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) unanimous decision victory on Tuesday night.
The bright side for “Lil’ Heathen” fans is that he seems to be in good spirits. It could be a lot worse. At least Stephens’ eye isn’t nearly as bad as when UFC welterweight king Georges St-Pierre made Josh Koscheck look like THIS.
