UFC FIGHT NIGHT 17 will take place this Saturday Feb. 7, at the Sun Dome in Tampa, Florida and will air live on SPIKE TV starting at 9pm ET. Joe Lauzon (17-4) was originally scheduled to fight Hermes Franca (19-7) in the main event. However, Franca had to pull out due to injury and has been replaced by the ever tough “Little Heathen” Jeremy Stephens (14-3). Out of Stephens’ fourteen victories, ten have been by KO or TKO. He has wins in the UFC over Cole Miller, Rafael Dos Anjos, and Diego Saraiva. Some MMA pundits have stated Stephens may be an easier fight for Lauzon than Franca would have been, but any way you look at it, “J-Lau” will have his hands full Saturday night
