Yair Rodriguez – Jeremy Stephens II Targeted For UFC Boston
By FCF Staff
After their highly anticipated bout on Saturday ended in a disappointing no-contest, it looks like Yair Rodriguez and Jeremy Stephens will run it back on October 18th.
The featherweights faced off in the headliner of UFC Mexico City, but Stephens took an eye poke moments in and was deemed ineligible to continue. The fighters were then captured on video having a post-fight exchange in the hotel lobby.
ESPN is reporting that UFC President Dana White’s confirmed that a rematch is being targeted for the promotion’s October 18th card in Boston. The fight hasn’t been finalized yet, but both fighters are reportedly interested in the rematch.
The fight would serve as the co-main event for the card, which will be hosted by Boston’s TD Gardens.
