The UFC rings in 2018 with UFC Fight Night 124: Stephens vs. Choi this Sunday night live from the Scottrade Center in St. Louis.
In the main event, Jeremy Stephens battles Doo Ho Choi in a five-round featherweight affair live on FOX Sports 1.
The rest of the main card features Uriah Hall vs. Vitor Belfort, Paige VanZant vs. Jessica Rose-Clark and Kamaru Usman vs. Emil Weber Meek.
Stephens, a 31-year-old from Iowa, is seeking back-to-back wins after closing out his 2017 with a decision over Gilbert Melendez. Choi makes his first main event appearance inside the Octagon after sitting out all of 2017 following a loss to Cub Swanson back at UFC 206.
The co-main sees former Ultimate Fighter runner-up Hall looking to earn his second consecutive win against Belfort, an ex-UFC champion, who continues to battle on at 40 years old. “The Phenom” defeated Nate Marquardt at UFC 212 last June.
On the prelims, Michael Johnson headlines against Darren Elkins, along with James Krause vs. Alex White, Matt Frevola vs. Marco Polo Reyes and Thiago Alves vs. Zak Cummings.
