Jeremy Stephens snaps four-year skid with win over Myles Price

Jeremy Stephens will need to hope more than his decision over Myles Price fall in his favor at PFL 4 to make the playoffs, but it’s his first win in a while

After a controversial PFL weigh-in, Jeremy Stephens managed to earn a split-decision victory over Myles Price to kick off the PFL 4 main card.

This marks Stephens’s first victory in MMA since a February 2018 knockout of Josh Emmett. Since then, Stephens had been 0-6, 1 NC.

Earning just three points with this win, however, means Stephens must wait the rest of the night to see if he earns a lightweight postseason berth.
