Jeremy Stephens has decided to make a career move following three consecutive defeats.
Stephens sent out a message on Twitter that he has decided to change weight classes.
My manager wants me to start 2013 as a featherweight (145) and working with @ufc to make it happen. Sounds interesting!

Stephens (20-9) suffered his first career knockout loss to Yves Edwards recently. Along with the weight change, “Lil Heathen” will also be dealing with a previous assault charge that saw him wind up in jail earlier this year.
