Dennis Bermudez vs. Jeremy Stephens set for UFC 189

March 31, 2015 9:57 am by Chris Taylor


July’s UFC 189 event in Las Vegas just got its first non-title bout.

UFC officials recently announced that featherweights Dennis Bermudez (14-4 MMA) and Jeremy Stephens (23-11 MMA) will throw down at the highly anticipated summer event.

Dennis Bermudez was most recently seen in action at November’s UFC 180 event, where he suffered a first-round submission loss to former title challenger Ricardo Lamas. Prior to the setback, “The Menace” had put together an impressive seven-fight win streak, which included wins over Max Hollaway, Clay Guida and Jim Hettes.

Meanwhile, Jeremy Stephens will be looking to rebound, this after suffering back-to-back losses in his most recent octagon appearances. “Lil Heathen” was most recently seen in action at December’s “TUF 20 Finale” event, where he suffered a unanimous decision loss to Charles Oliveira. Since moving down to the UFC’s featherweight division in 2013, Stephens has gone 3-2.

UFC 189 takes place July 11 live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The event is headlined by a featherweight title fight featuring current champ Jose Aldo taking on challenger Conor McGregor. In the evening’s co-main event, UFC welterweight champion Robbie Lawler will defend his strap against surging contender Rory MacDonald.
