Default Jeremy Stephens Replaces Hermes Franca At UFN 17

Jeremy Stephens replaces Hermes Franca at UFC Fight Night 17
by Dann Stupp on Jan 27, 2009 at 4:10 pm ET
Up-and-coming lightweight Jeremy Stephens (14-3 MMA, 3-2 UFC) will replace Hermes Franca (19-7 MMA, 6-4 UFC) in a UFC Fight Night 17 bout with Joe Lauzon (17-4 MMA, 4-1 UFC).

Multiple sources close to the fighter today told MMAjunkie.com that Stephens has officially accepted the bout, which takes place Feb. 7 at the USF Sun Dome in Tampa, Fla. The night's main card airs on Spike TV.

Franca was forced off the card this week after suffering a torn ACL in his right knee.

those were REAL groin shots actually

I like Stephens...but I also like Lauzon...Lauzon talks to me...Stephens never replies...I reckon he's spent too much time with Spencer Fisher who never talks to me neither
