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.
