Jeremy Stephens To Renan Barao: “Knocking Brazilians Out Is My Forte”


Jeremy Stephens has the chance to make a statement later this year when he meets Renan Barao at UFC Fight Night 88.

While the bout has yet to be officially announced, Stephens more-or-less confirmed it on Twitter Thursday.

And he did so with some “fighting words” for Barao, a former UFC bantamweight champion who will be moving up to featherweight for the contest.

Also, Stephens made sure everyone knows that the fight is happening in Las Vegas and not Brazil, as previously reported:
