Following the first back-to-back losses of his career, Jeremy Stephens (15-5 MMA, 3-4 UFC) will look to right the ship when he meets UFC newcomer and fellow lightweight Ronny Torres (14-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 19.

A source close to one of the fighters today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) the bout is in the process on being finalized.

Kinda looks like a bad matchup for Stephens, seeing as how torres has 7 sub wins.

Could be a good fight though.

Yeah, it's a very bad matchup for Stephens. Torres is a good ground fighter and Stephens is notorious for doing bad against grapplers and submission specialists. I hope he wins though. He's one tough exciting fighter to watch.

Tough draw for Stephens. Torres is no joke and will probably sub Jeremy.

This feels like the longest awaited debut ever!

Torres has been signed forever....
