Jeremy Stephens is riding high following his unanimous decision win over Gilbert Melendez at UFC 215 a few weeks ago in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada (recap). In fact, “Lil’ Heathen” was already looking for a fight against former UFC Featherweight champion Jose Aldo soon after turning “El Nino’s” leg inside-out.
But, according to Stephens, Aldo “doesn’t want none,” so he turned his attention to another stand up specialist, Chan Sung Jung.
Hearing Jose doesn’t want none..? ♂️What’s up w/ Korean Zombie? I’d like to fight him too. Any translators that can get him to step up?

Not one to lose an opportunity, “Korean Zombie” responded to the callout by trolling Stephens with a now-infamous Conor McGregor quote.
Sorry, Jeremy, but that quote you will never escape.
Jung, however, won’t be fighting anytime soon as he is currently recovering for surgery after tearing his ACL and MCL prior to his scheduled fight against Ricardo Lamas at UFC 214.
With Jung and Aldo being no-gos, it seems Stephens will have to look elsewhere for a fight. Anyone got any ideas?
