Slated for Barboza in October
August 6, 2020
Stephens is being targeted for a featherweight matchup against Edson Barboza on the event scheduled for October 10, Raphael Marinho of Combate reports.
Stephens hasn't picked up a win since February of 2018, as he was dealt his fourth consecutive loss against Calvin Kattar in May. He'll face another struggling veteran in Barboza, who is just 1-5 in his last six fights. Don't let these records fool you, though. These are skilled, exciting combatants that can still put on a striking show. Barboza has the edge in striking volume, while Stephens is a bit better defensively, plus poses more of a takedown threat. Having recently moved down from lightweight, Barboza will have two-inch height and four-inch reach advatnages.
