A pairing of featherweights who are looking to shake off losing steaks has been added to UFC 215 in Edmonton.
The 35-year-old Melendez hasn’t been particularly active recently, as his four-losses-in-five-fights stretch dates back to April 2013. Melendez’s most recent bout was a unanimous decision loss to Edson Barboza at UFC on FOX 20 in Chicago last July.
Stephens (25-14), meanwhile, is also trying to get back on the winning track. Stephens has dropped two straight, and three of his past four, most recently a split decision defeat against Renato Moicano in Kansas City on April 15.
