UFC Fight Night 17 Wiki Update Wiki

Also known as Ultimate Fight Night 17, the main event, Spike TV-televised fight between Joe Lauzon and Jeremy Stephens was one of the most exciting bouts of the beginning of 2009, with Lauzon rallying through early adversity to take hold of a fight-ending Armbar in the second round. Stephens was a late replacement opponent for Lauzon after his training partner Hermes Franca was forced off the card due to an ACL injury.
