Following three consecutive losses and a 2-5 mark in his past seven fights, Joe Stevenson (31-13 MMA, 8-7 UFC) is dropping from lightweight to featherweight to meet Javier Vazquez (15-5 MMA, 0-0 UFC) at UFC on Versus 4.

UFC officials today announced the bout.

Although not officially announced, UFC on Versus 4 takes place June 26, and Pittsburgh's 19,000-seat Consol Energy Center is expected to play host.

It's not clear if Stevenson vs. Velasquez will be part of the night's Versus-televised main card.

 I think it is.

regardless, the drop makes total sense.

Stevenson still in the UFC? Wow he has lost 3 straight and is 8-7 in the UFC! thets be honest he didnt look good in the danzig fight and the castillo fight! Interseting he is going down a weight he beat yves edwards in his lightweight debut. This is defo the last chance for him. The fight is very interesting looking forawrd to the matchup.

It's a good move. The roster at 145 is still lacking recognizable names to the casual fan. Most people have heard of Joe.

Very true. but hes getting pushed right in the deep end against vasquez who is top 10 in the division Fredson Paixao would of made more sense but there all beasts in the featherweight division.

So far it's Florian, Stevenson, and Tyson Griffin that are making the drop, right?

Joe might "sprawl and brawl" and dare Javi to take him down.

JonesBonedMyMasterBader - Stevenson should be cut already. He is a waste of space

Javi and Joe know each other very well.They kinda came up thru the same circuit.Javi is a slicker wrestler and they are about the same in the striking dept.However if javi gets top position he can end the fight.Javi"s jitz is better than Joe's.Thats not a knock on Joe, just a fact.I'm rooting for Javi all the way on this one.Take it to em Javi!!!

Holy shit at Joe Daddy at FW! He is as big of a 5'6 you can get!

Awesome fight, both are tough, very risky all around.

^^^yep Joe has fought at heavyweight before!

The dude was only 16 when he fought Jens Pulver, then over his career he decided for how short he was, that it was better to fight at a lower weight. Joe always looked good at 170, I was shocked to see him drop to LW so quick in UFC, but now FW? He is going to need the best diet in the world. I'm know he will be strong as shit, I hope he's not too slow when standing with these featherweights though :(

What's kind of weird is that one of Joe's only wins in years was Nate Diaz, whom he absolutely dominated.

Seems like a pretty extreme cut to me.
