MMA veteran Jeremy Stephens suffered his second consecutive loss at UFC 235, losing to rising featherweight Zabit Magomedsharipov on ESPN’s preliminary card.

It was a fairly competitive bout, but Magomedsharipov utilized his superior footwork, timing and angles to earn the unanimous decision.

Despite suffering back-to-back losses, ‘Lil Heathen’ is in high spirits and still believes he has what it takes to become a world champion.

I will continue to live as a champion inside and outside of the octagon and surround myself with championship likewise personals. There is no doubt in my mind that I always show up, I bust my ass inside and outside the octagon and bring in my world class A Game and championship mindset. I feel sometimes I suffer these set backs because God knows I’m that type of person who will learn and comeback stronger and do something bigger, greater than myself, and find strength in the struggle. I hold my head high like a champion knowing what my limitless capabilities are. I would like to ask @ufc @danawhite @seanshelby for a quick return in June for Chicago with a game opponent who wants to fight, so I can get back to winning ways!
