Davis vs. Stephens, Soto vs. Roberts Official for UFC 125
By FCF Staff
The Ultimate Fighting Championship has officially added two more bouts to the promotion’s upcoming January 1st event in Las Vegas, Nevada, as Marcus Davis (pictured) will make his lightweight debut against Jeremy Stephens, and welterweight Daniel Roberts will take on Greg Soto.
Davis (17-7) will make the drop from welterweight after dropping three of his last four fights. Most recently, at UFC 118 in August, Davis was choked out by Nate Diaz.
Stephens (18-6) has battled to split decisions in his last two outings, defeating Sam Stout in May, before losing to Melvin Guillard at UFC 119 in September.
Roberts (11-1) is coming off back-to-back victories over Forrest Petz and Mike Guymon, after being knocked out by John Howard in March.
Soto (8-1) has gone 1-1 thus far in his Octagon career. In March, he was disqualified for illegally upkicking Matt Riddle, before returning to the winning column in August, by working his way to a unanimous decision win over Nick Osipczak.
UFC 125 will feature two title fights, as lightweight champion Frankie Edgar will look to avenge his previous loss to Gray Maynard, while featherweight champ Jose Aldo will face challenger Josh Grispi.
