An undisclosed injury has forced lightweight Yves Edwards (41-18-1 MMA, 9-6 UFC) to withdraw from a fight with Donald Cerrone (17-4 MMA, 3-1 UFC) at UFC on FUEL TV 3.

Sources close to the event today told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that veteran Jeremy Stephens (20-7 MMA, 7-6 UFC) has been tapped to replace Edwards.

UFC on FUEL TV 3 takes place May 15 at Patriot Center in Fairfax, Va. The event's main card airs live on FUEL TV while preliminary-card fights are expected to stream on Facebook.

It's not clear where Stephens vs. Cerrone will be situated on the lineup.

way better fight. Cerrone was going to walk through Yves. Stephens lost very close decisions to Guillard and Pettis (I thought he beat Guillard) and is always game.

Interesting. I wonder how Cerrone will handle the change. Cerrone is one tough dude that is used to keeping it on the feet and moving forward. It was obvious against Diaz how much he was out of his game when he was the one getting walked down instead. Jeremy Stephens is a flawed fighter, but I have never seen anyone walk him down and brawl with him and be successful.
