The UFC has not yet stated whether or not the bout will be rescheduled for a future date.
Meanwhile, Stephens is a +130 underdog (bet $100 to win $130) at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark and coming off a UD win over Gilbert Melendez at UFC 215.
UFC strawweight fighter Paige VanZant, who is on the same card, said on social media that it was the scariest things she'd ever seen. The heavy-handed Jeremy Stephens fights fan favorite Doo Ho Choi, along with MMA legend Vitor Belfort in his retirement bout against the consistently inconsistent Uriah Hall.
As a result of Hall vs. Belfort getting scratched, Darren Elkins vs. Michael Johnson was moved to the main card. It is easy to see where and why this camp has been so rough for Hall. He most recently fought at UFC Fight Night 116 in September, knocking out Krzysztof Jotko in the second round.
Belfort is a +250 underdog and also ended a three-bout winless streak in his most recent outing, scoring a UD victory against Nate Marquardt at UFC 212 June 3. Belfort suffered three TKO defeats in as many fights before that, though the most recent of those losses was overturned after Kelvin Gastelum failed a drug test for marijuana metabolites.
