Gilbert Melendez and Jeremy Stephens may do battle at UFC 215.
Melendez is looking to move back down to featherweight after going on a three-fight skid. “El Nino” is a former Strikeforce lightweight champion. His record in the UFC, however, is 1-4.
Stephens has also been on a bumpy road. He’s gone 2-5 in his last seven outings.
Respected mixed martial arts (MMA) journalist Damon Martin revealed that a bout between the two may take place on Sept. 9:
