Apart from Stephens being underrated, Sonnen also spoke about Emmett being dangerous.
Jeremy Stephens faces Josh Emmett in a potential title-eliminator matchup for a shot at the UFC Featherweight Championship.
Sonnen spoke about Stephens being avoided by most other fighters in the division.
In fact, while speaking about Stephens, Chael Sonnen explained that the former has beaten several big names, however, the primary reason behind Stephens being underrated is because he can’t seem to find consistency in his performances.
Additionally, Sonnen elucidated that although most people cite experience as one of the most important factors in any profession, he feels that all experience does is make you complacent.
Sonnen added that experience makes a person lost in the grind—going through the same motions.
Meanwhile, Sonnen elucidated that when an unknown fighter such as Emmett gets an opportunity to showcase his skills, he grabs it with both hands.
Furthermore, Sonnen emphasized that much like Emmett obliterated Ricardo Lamas in his brutal KO win, he could do the same to Stephens.
Sonnen signed off by alluding that this fight could go either way.
