Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Jeremy Stephens has a tough challenge ahead as he faces TUF Brazil season 1 winner Rony Jason in "hostile territory" at Brazil’s UFC Fight Night 29, on Oct. 9.

A city or a venue aren't set yet for the event, which is expected to take place in Brazil.

MMAFighting learned with sources close to the situation that both fighters agreed to meet inside the Octagon. MMAWeekly first reported the bout.

"Looks like my first trip to Brazil will be fighting in hostile territory on a UFC main card," Stephens wrote on his Facebook page on Wednesday.

Stephens enters the cage following a unanimous decision victory over Estevan Payan at UFC 160, getting back to the win column after suffering three consecutive losses to Anthony Pettis, Donald Cerrone and Yves Edwards.

Jason, a 13-3 MMA veteran, finished Sam Sicilia and Mike Wilkinson after defeating Godofredo Pepey at UFC 147 for TUF Brazil 1 featheweight finale.
