Lightweights Jeremy Stephens and Yves Edwards have received a second date, as Stephens replaces an injured John Cholish. The two will collide on December 8 from Seattle at UFC on Fox: Henderson vs. Diaz.

Stephens and Edwards were originally set to meet last month, but Stephens (20-8) was arrested due to an outstanding warrant issued in his name from Iowa. The bout was scheduled for Minnesota.

Edwards (41-18-1) was unable to compete on the card due to the arrest coming the day of the event. He is 9-6 in his UFC career, while Stephens is 7-6.

Cholish was forced out of the bout due to a groin injury.
