Jeremy 'lil Heathen' Stephens is familiar with the rewarding experience of knocking out his opponents. As a mixed martial artist he is 29-21-0. He tests his hands against a familiar face in Jose Aldo 31-8-0. They meet again in the prize ring of Gamebred 4 taking place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin at the fiserv forum.
After signing up for this boxing match Jeremy has been on the warpath leaving his training partners exhausted with his strength, movement, and endurance. The look between the alternating men as Jeremy paces in the ring like a lion waiting for his next big clash. With sweat dripping he sharpens his already famed skills as a knockout master craftsman. Incorporating thefightrope.com's rope into his camp he focuses on footwork, hand speed, and focus. As he prepares for battle the savagery of his efforts are echoed throughout the city of San Diego, California where he calls home.
Longtime training partner and master of footwork himself, Dominick Cruz spend days on top of the roof and the world skipping rope into the twilight hours and working relentlessly on proper placement and movement against the backdrop of the cityscape.
The ocean breeze breathes in and out with cool air as the last vestige of winter makes way for spring growth and warmth. During the home stretch of camp Jeremy uses Deep End Fitness training developed by Former Marine Raiders part of our Military Special Forces. Prime Hall puts Jeremy through the paces, under nearly 15ft of water with weights and exercises built to make our special operations teams the deadliest force on the planet. Under the waterline the heathen swims 50 meters while instructors provide obstacles and activities designed to utilize every ounce of oxygen the body has in reserve and challenge every fiber of his muscles.
So tune in and see the discipline of these two warriors on display as they beat blood and guts onto the canvas like an artists rendition of combat. The lights and the roars of the crowd will make the night one to remember. Some young people will see this boxing card and recall the one time they saw true men of violence work with fury and grace. The fans deserve a display of heart, passion, and chaos so focused that it may very well break the barriers between the different sports forever and be revered that journeymen Ronin can meld their styles with the same scholarship as a doctor.
