Joe Stevenson Drops Fourth Straight To Javier Vasquez At UFC Live 4

Joe Stevenson lost his fourth straight UFC bout to Javier Vasquez in a listless three rounder. Vasquez took Stevenson down early, dominated position, threatened with a tight guillotine and even outpointed Stevenson on the feet.

UFC on Versus 4 results: Javier Vazquez defeats Joe Stevenson by unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 30-27).

Looks like "Joe Daddy" is done in the UFC. A former lightweight title challenger and The Ultimate Fighter season two winner, he's now lost four straight fights in the UFC, including his first at featherweight. He looked flat and lost tonight.

Stevenson's coach Greg Jackson gave some dubious advice to Stevenson to pursue the take down at all costs as that played into Vazquez' ground game and very nearly got Stevenson submitted. Stevenson hasn't looked at all good since beating Spencer Fisher in 2009. He's only 29 but he's been fighting professionally since 1999.

Vazquez, a 35 year old Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt and son-in-law of BJJ legend Rorion Gracie, faded in the final round.  Fortunately for him, Stevenson had little or nothing to offer him in the third round.
