After postponement for UFC 215 fight, Jeremy Stephens finally got married over the weekend


It’s been a pretty good month for UFC featherweight Jeremy Stephens.

Not only did the longtime UFC veteran Stephens (26-14 MMA, 13-13 UFC) score one of the most important victories of his career against Gilbert Melendez (22-7 MMA, 1-5 UFC) at UFC 215, but he also got hitched.

Stephens and his new bride, Cindy Lopez, got married in California over the weekend, and the pictures are in (via Instagram):

Stephens was originally scheduled to be married on the same weekend as UFC 215. However, when he was offered the matchup with Melendez, which he won by lopsided unanimous decision with a UFC record-tying five knockdowns of his opponent, he opted to push the date back.

“I have a great fiancee,” Stephens told MMAjunkie at UFC 215 media day. “Not only is she beautiful, she has an amazing heart. She understands this is what I do, and this what I love. These opportunities aren’t going to be knocking 15 years from now.”

Stephens clearly made the right choice. On top of the noteworthy win, “Lil’ Heathen” also received a $50,000 “Fight of the Night” bonus for his encounter with Melendez. That should help pay off the honeymoon.
