Rony Jason vs. Jeremy Stephens rescheduled for UFC Fight Night 32 in November
Rony Jason (13-3 MMA, 3-0 UFC) and Jeremy Stephens (21-9 MMA, 8-8 UFC) will indeed fight in Brazil, it will just take place one month later than was originally anticipated.
UFC officials today announced both Jason and Stephens have verbally agreed to meet at UFC Fight Night 32, which takes place Nov. 9 at Goiania Arena in Goiania, Goias, Brazil. Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson meet in the evening's headliner.
Jason and Stephens were expected to meet at October's UFC Fight Night 29 card, but the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA) ruled Jason out of the fight due to a lumbar hernia. Shortly after, Stephens suffered an injury, as well, and the bout was scrapped.
