Rodriguez vs Stephens at UFC Fight Night 159: What to Expect?
Rodriguez is 28, 5 years younger than the 33 year old Jeremy Stephens. Both of them have the exact same weight and reach but Rodriguez has a slight advantage when it comes to height as he has 0.02m more on his opponent. Both the men are quite athletic and have been key figures in the UFC Featherweight division.
It is expected that the strategy that Rodriguez will use will be to tire out his opponent as he has a much better cardio at age 28 than Stephens at age 33. This will give him the advantage and hence the hometown-hero will be able to score an easy win.
Wait, there's another UFC card on Saturday? And the main event is Yair Rodriguez vs. Jeremy Stephens?
We are entering a whole new level of watered down, people.
