Popular and fan-favorite UFC Featherweights Jeremy Stephens and Yair Rodriguez recently fought each other at UFC Fight Night 159. However, much to the fans’ dismay, the fight ended in just 15 seconds after starting due to an accidental eye poke by Rodriguez on Stephens which left the former unable to continue. Now media reports are again stating that a rematch is being scheduled.

The news about a potential rematch being booked was first broken out by noted combat sports journalist Ariel Helwani via his Twitter account. Though, he also quickly reminded the fans what had earlier been reported that Stephens had received a hefty close to six-month-long suspension. Here’s what he had to say:

There’s definitely a desire to run Rodriguez v Stephens back in the near future, though nothing has been booked yet, sources say. They’ve even talked about adding it to the Boston card which is less than a month away (10/18) and recently lost its co-main.

ESPN’s @marc_raimondi reported Monday that Stephens was medically suspended 180 days due to a corneal abrasion, however, he can be cleared any time by an ophthalmologist.

Below is Helwani’s tweet:
