Stephens, first fought under the UFC banner in May 2007 when Din Thomas defeated him by second-round submission. In the nearly 11 years he's been with the organization, Stephens has compiled a record of 14-13. He enters his bout against Emmett on a two-fight winning streak. Both of those contests won "Fight of the Night" honors.

Emmett does not have nearly the UFC tenure of Stephens. A pro since 2011, Emmett joined the promotion in 2016 as a lightweight. He went 2-1 at 155 pounds before dropping to 145 in October of last year. Emmett is 2-0 as a featherweight, but he did miss weight by 2.5 pounds in his most recent bout, a first-round knockout victory over former title challenger Ricardo Lamas.

In the co-main event, former women's strawweight title challenger Jessica Andrade hopes to get back in the hunt for UFC gold when she faces Tecia Torres. Andrade defeated Claudia Gadelha in her most recent fight. Torres is on a three-fight winning streak.

Before the event, which airs on FOX following prelims on UFC Fight Pass, check out the "Road to the Octagon" video which focuses on the above two fights as well as the light heavyweight matchup between Ovince Saint Preux and Ilir Latifi.
