Jeremy Stephens will attempt to hand Rony Jason his first UFC loss this October, as the two collide at UFC Fight Night 29.
The bout was confirmed by UFC officials for the October 9 card which has yet to land a location.
Stephens (21-9) is an even 8-8 in 16 UFC bouts, including a successful debut in the featherweight division over Estevan Payan. He also confirmed news of the fight on Facebook, writing, “Looks like my first trip to Brazil will be fighting in hostile territory on a UFC main card.”
Jason (13-3) claimed the title of Ultimate Fighter: Brazil last year and has earned two more UFC wins since.
