UFC adds Jeremy Stephens vs. Renato Moicano to upcoming Fox show
Featherweight Jeremy Stephens and Renato Moicano will face off as part of UFC on Fox 24. The UFC announced the addition to the event, which takes place April 15 at the Sprint Center in Kansas City.
Stephens is looking to get back on the winning track after dropping his last fight against former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar. In fact, Stephens has dropped four of his last six bouts. During his UFC career, he has picked up signature wins over Darren Elkins, Cole Miller, former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos and former UFC bantamweight champion Renan Barao.
Moicano joined the UFC in 2014 with an undefeated record and has continued his winning ways inside the promotion. In his debut, he scored a second-round submission over Tom Niinimaki. He returned late last year and took a split-decision victory over Zubaira Tukhugov.
The main event of UFC on Fox 24 has not been announced. However, in the co-main event, strawweight contenders Rose Namajunas and Michelle Waterson will face off.
