Jeremy Stephens injured and OUT of UFC Vegas 13 clash with Brit Arnold Allen on November 7 with new opponent in works


JEREMY STEPHENS has reportedly been forced out of the UFC Vegas 13 event next month.

The 34-year-old featherweight was due to compete against English prodigy Arnold 'Almighty' Allen.

Now MMA Junkie states he has been pulled from the card on November 7 due to an unknown injury.

Ipswich-born Allen is still expected to fight in Sin City.

UFC officials are believed to be searching for a replacement for him to face.

The rising star (16-1-0) already has a number of impressive victories on his CV.

He has won seven already under UFC’s banner with wins coming over Makwan Amirkhani, Mads Burnell, Gilbert Melendez and Nik Lentz. 

Allen goes into the event in fine form after embarking on a nine fight winning streak.

He has not been beaten in over six years.

Allen is currently ranked ninth in the featherweight division.

He has competed 17 times as a professional MMA fighter, with eight of those going the distance.
