Jeremy Stephens, who is coming off the first knockout loss of his career, will begin the process of competing at featherweight. Stephens has spent his entire seven-year MMA career at lightweight.
My manager wants me to start 2013 as a featherweight (145) and working with @ufc to make it happen. Sounds interesting!
Stephens (20-9) has lost three straight, dropping decisions to Donald Cerrone and Anthony Pettis prior to the knockout loss to Yves Edwards.
Stephens is also still battling legal issues steaming from an assault back in 2011 in his native state of Iowa.
