A featherweight bout originally scheduled for UFC Fight Night 29 has been moved to UFC Fight Night 32 as Jeremy Stephens is set to face Rony “Jason” Mariano Bezerra on November 9. UFC officials recently confirmed the switch.
The two featherweights head into the bout coming off victories in their previous outings. TUF: Brazil 1 champion Rony Jason defeated Mike Wilkinson at UFC on FUEL TV 10, marking his second victory since winning the reality show at UFC 147. Meanwhile Jeremy Stephens heads into the bout after snapping a three-fight losing streak in his featherweight debut at UFC 160.
UFC Fight Night 32 takes place November 9 in Goiana, Goiás, Brazil. The FOX Sports 1 fight card will be headlined by a light heavyweight clash between Dan Henderson and Vitor Belfort in a rematch of their 2006 PRIDE bout that saw “Hendo” victorious. The card’s lineup will likely be finalized in the coming weeks.
