Pros React To Jeremy Stephens’ KO Of Josh Emmett At UFC On Fox 28 And Urijah Faber Also Goes Off On ‘Illegal Knee

Jeremy “Lil Heathen” Stephen earned his third consecutive win with a second-round knockout win over Josh Emmett in the main event of UFC on FOX 28. But his main event win wasn’t without controversy.

Jeremy Stephens dropped his opponent to the mat with a left hand in the second round and then unleashed a barrage of ground strikes including elbows that looked like they landed to the back of Emmett’s head, which is illegal. ‘ Lil Heathen’ also seemed to land a knee to Emmett’s temple as he was turtled on the mat, which is also a foul. Referee Dan Miragliotta, however, did not signal any foul.

Check out the Twitter reaction below:

Former Middleweight champion Michael Bisping and Dominick Cruz continued arguing with Daniel Cormier about the legality of the knee.

Team Alpha Male coach Urijah Faber gave his opinion on his team’s defeat right after the fight was done:

“Dominick Cruz and Michael Bisping are f*cking blind. That was a knee to the back of the head. An illegal knee to the illegal back of the head. Give me a friggin’ break. Congratulations to Stephens. He fought a good one.”
