- Ultimate Fighter Escudero Vs Stephens In April

“Ultimate Fighter” season eight winner Efrain Escudero is expected to return to action against lightweight prospect Jeremy Stephens at a yet to be announced Ultimate Fight Night 18 on April 1. The event’s location has not been determined.

Bout agreements have not yet been signed, but sources close to both fighters revealed to MMAWeekly.com that they are expected put pen to paper in the coming days.

Escudero made waves as the dark horse of the recent reality season, defeating Ido Pariente, Shane Nelson, and Junie Browning to meet Phillip Nover in the show’s finale on Dec. 13. The 22-year-old native Mexican used his wrestling base to dominate Nover en route to a unanimous decision victory, earning him The Ultimate Fighter title. Prior to the show, Escudero was 10-0 in professional competition, fighting mostly for the Arizona-based Rage in the Cage promotion.

Stephens, 22, last turned heads with a bonus-winning knockout of Rafael Dos Anjos at UFC 91. The Des Moines native has gone 4-2 in UFC competition, with an overall record of 16-3. Source MMAWeekly

I guess Dana thinks Efrain has a ton of talent if they are already putting him up against Stephens. If Jeremy can keep stuffing those take downs, I see him winning this by TKO/KO.

I don't think that he can consistently stuff Escuderos take downs. If Fisher could take him down, I'm pretty sure that Escudero can.

That being said, I'll pick Escudero by submission or decision. That's a pretty competitive first fight after the ultimate fighter, though. It should be interesting.

Jeremy Stephens is a bad bad dude. It's crazy how deep LW is.

Efrain should be able to take this because he is a strong wrestler but Stephens has power and could win this he's going to need to be very careful.

I love LW.

Wow that is a tough second fight in the UFC! I will have to go with Stephens by tko but that may change the closer we get to the event.

Yea let's see

Forrest got Mahood
Diego got Gassaway
Rashad got Hoger
Grove got Price
Bisping got Schafer
Diaz got Assuncao
Danzig got Bocek

The one guy I didn't put down was Joe because he got a similar match up to Stephens in Neer who is a well rounded skilled fighter.

I also didn't put Amir because he's fighting Catone and that hasn't happened yet.
