We could be looking at an early candidate for "Fight of the Night" when Donald Cerrone vs. Jeremy Stephens goes down on the main card of UFC on FUEL TV 3: "Korean Zombie vs. Poirier" TONIGHT at 8 p.m. ET on FUEL TV.
Cerrone (17-4) saw his six-fight winning streak snapped at the hands of Nate Diaz, literally, when the lanky Stockton slugger outstruck him across three rounds, sending him to a convincing unanimous decision loss at the UFC 141: "Lesnar vs. Overeem" pay-per-view (PPV) event last December.
It was "Cowboy's" first defeat since falling to now-division champion Ben Henderson way back at WEC 48.
Also looking to get back into the win column is Stephens (20-7), who fell out of favor with the cageside judges in his close split decision defeat to Anthony Pettis last October.
His loss to "Showtime" snapped a two-fight winning streak and left him at 4-2 over his last six fights; however, the "Lil' Heathen" is a considerable threat to anyone in the lightweight division and hasn't been knocked out in 27 professional fights.
