UFC 136: Edgar v Maynard III

The latest victim of the never ending injury plague is none other than long time MMA veteran Yves Edwards.

Edwards was originally scheduled to fight Donald Cerrone on the UFC on FUEL TV 3 event set for May but an undisclosed injury has forced him off the card.

In his place comes the very tough, Jeremy Stephens.

UFC on FUEL 3 is set to take place from the Patriot Center in Fairfax, VA on May 15.

Cerrone has quickly turned into a UFC fan favorite after being imported from the WEC. After stringing together a six-fight win streak that included victories over the likes of former top-ten ranked lightweight Dennis Siver. All his momentum halted in his UFC 141 bout against Nate Diaz when he lost a lopsided decision and in the process broke the UFC record for most strikes landed on.

Stephens, like Cerrone is coming off of a loss in his most recent UFC outing. He last faced Anthony Pettis in a close contest, but fell short on the judges’ cards resulting in a split-decision defeat.
