According to a report by Combate, former UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barao will move up to featherweight and meet Jeremy Stephens at UFC Fight Night 88.

The event would be the May 29, with a date and location yet to be announced.

Barao (33-3) lost the title to T.J. Dillashaw in 2014, but rebounded with a win over Mitch Gagnon to secure a rematch. He lost again to Dillashaw and will move up following issues cutting down to 135 pounds.

Stephens (24-12) suffered a decision loss to Max Holloway this past December, dropping him to 4-5 over his last nine fights. He finished Dennis Bermudez earlier tin the year following back-to-back decision defeats in 2014 to Charles Oliveira and Cub Swanson.
