Anthony Pettis Vs. Jeremy Stephens Booked For UFC 136
MMANEWS.COM Staff Writer
Former WEC Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis will attempt to pick up his first win since transferring over to the UFC as it was announced over the weekend that he will take on Jeremy Stephens in lightweight action at UFC 136.
Pettis was originally promised a shot at the UFC Lightweight title but a rematch and subsequent injuries to both Champion Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard forced Pettis off the sidelines and into a match against Clay Guida. Pettis would lose his UFC debut, along with his title shot, to Guida at UFC on Versus.
Stephens has won his last two fights and will look to further himself up the lightweight ladder when he takes on Pettis.
Ironically enough, Edgar and Maynard will finally fight their rematch in the main event of UFC 136 on October 8th in Houston.
