The Good Korea
One of the single greatest moments in MMA history, he writes with appreciation for the hyperbole, was Conor McGregor dressing down Jeremy Stephens. Let’s all relive it:
Jeremy Stephens then showed up at Madison Square Garden for UFC 205 and proceeded to be owned by Frankie Edgar. I suspect it was all because of Conor, as the Irishman clearly took his soul in that moment. That was followed by Renato Moicano beating Mr. Little Heathen. At least Stephens managed to beat up a one-legged Gilbert Melendez.
Stephens, like some of you (not me, of course), needs money. To get money, he needs to fight. To fight, he needs an opponent. Thusly, he issued a challenge to the Korean Zombie. See:
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?

A tiny bit of racism was thrown in, depending on how sensitive one is to the plight of POC, just for good measure. Can’t blame Stephens, can you? Like when he called out McGregor, he’s just trying to build his name a bit and Zombie is a good fighter, who has great fights, with an excellent name, and all that. Smart move. Then Korean Zombie responded. If Zombie tweets, it’s special, as he has all of 138 tweets in his life and hasn’t sent one out since July.
You can decide if Stephens will ever recover.
