An injury has forced Yves Edwards out of UFC on Fuel 3 and in his place Jeremy Stephens will step in to face Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone on the May 15 card.

Sources close to the fight confirmed the news to MMAWeekly.com on Monday. MMAJunkie.com initially reported the switch.

Following two wins in a row to kick off 2011, Jeremy Stephens came up short in his next bid to get closer to the top of the lightweight division, losing a decision to former WEC champion Anthony Pettis at UFC 136.

Stephens now comes back to step in on short notice to face a very tough task in Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone.

Both Stephens and Cerrone are known for their vicious, knockout power so this could be an early candidate for Fight of the Night for the UFC on Fuel 3 card coming up in May.
