During an interview with MMA Junkie, Stephens explained his violent mentality in which he is more brutal than ever before.
While doing so, he mentioned a few fictional and non-fictional characters who are known for their violent acts.
“I’m probably more of, like, a serial killer than anything. Yeah, Dexter, that sounds good. Like, I’ve got that thirst, those urges. Like a Dahmer, a Bundy. I’m not highlighting these guys, like what they did was sick… Something like that. I have a thirst that I have to satisfy,” Stephens said.
“No disrespect, but I feel like a goddamn serial killer that needs to kill. That might sound a little bit weird, but there’s something about that adrenaline, that feeling, that power. It’s a blood-quenching thirst that I need.” (h/t MMANews.com)
While Dexter is a fictional character, Jeffrey Dahmer and Ted Bundy are two real-life serial killers, who committed violent acts against several victims. Their actions led to their eventual arrests. Netflix developed two separate shows about the two men.
