UFC 160 Receives Jeremy Stephens Vs. Estevan Payan

UFC officials announced another bout for UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Silva II, as Jeremy Stephens will welcome Estevan Payan to the Octagon. The card takes place May 25 from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Stephens-Payan, which will take place at featherweight, will likely be part of the prelims. The main event boasts UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez defending his title against Antonio Silva.

Stephens (20-9) decided to move down to featherweight from lightweight after three consecutive losses. He is 2-4 in his last six overall, and likely in desperate need of a victory.

Payan is 14-3 in his career and was recently victorious over Mike Bravo at the final Strikeforce card. He owns five knockout victories and three more via submission.
