Probably going to be hard to find an opponent that can make weight because of thanksgiving and what not. Hopefully they do, but wouldn't be surprised if the whole fight got scrapped Is Jeremy Stephens out of jail? If that's all worked out maybe they can put him in there.

Yeah, he was out like 2 weeks later. Would make sense, to reach out to Stephens to see if he wants to step in.

Exactly. They where suppose to fight already and I think Stephens vs Edwards would be a better fight than Edwards vs Cholish.
